My name is Tony Guillory and with the height of 5' 8" tall and weighing 265 lbs, I had become a miserable unhealthy man! Not only was I taking 4 blood pressure pills a day, I also was a borderline diabetic! Being so overweight was also affecting one of my favorite things in life that I love to do --and that is riding and competing on barrel horses!! After a few of my friends had undergone the gastric sleeve procedure and after I saw how well they were doing, I decided to research it for myself. And after about a year of trying to make a decision, A friend of mine, Mr. Jerry McClain, told me about Dr. Parrish because that is who he used to do his sleeve surgery!! So I went to his monthly seminar meetings. I listened intently to Dr. Parrish and after hearing him speak, I made an appointment with him. That appointment was the best decision of my life. Dr. Parrish is an excellent doctor. Not only was he incredibly knowledgeable, but he invested the time in me to explain every step of the procedure. He was confident and he assured me that this surgery would absolutely be beneficial to my health. Truly, he's an impressive physician that I will entrust with a future procedure. I've had a wonderful experience. But, this is a journey! There are physical and mental challenges, but this is challenge you want to take. I would encourage anyone on the fence to swing the leg on over in faith. Go get your life back!
