"I can’t begin to say how much Dr. Pomp has done for me! In the last year, I had become unable to hold down any food and had lost an incredible amount of weight. At the end, I was unable to hold down Ensure. With that, I was dangerously dehydrated and was incredibly weak. After a test, it was apparent that I had an ulcer and it was blocking the entrance into my gastric pouch. Dr. Pomp said that he would be able to do a revision and that would free me of my problem. He promised with sometime, I would be able to eat again and be able to hold it down. Dr. Pomp was 100% a man to his word. I am now able to eat with the fear of getting sick. I feel so much better! Dr. Pomp is so professional and also has a great personality! I would definitely refer other patients to see him! Thank you Dr. Pomp for saving me!- Edward Czarnecki"
