She also shared some comments by recent weight loss patients:


“If you are thinking of having this surgery, my best advice to you would be to realize it is mind over matter, and to make sure you have a lot of supportive people around you. This is not an easy quick fix, it is a total lifestyle change and takes hard work and dedication. Never give up.”

-Dena Marshall, Patient of Dr. John Mathews, Bariatric Surgeon affiliated with Princeton Baptist Medical Center


“I knew I wanted to use Dr. Mathews as a surgeon because he is dedicated to his patients, careful and thorough, and his team of nurses are so supportive. The resources at the (Comprehensive Bariatric Center at Princeton Baptist) were (and are) so helpful, especially as I began my journey.”

-Rebecca Stocks, Gastric sleeve patient of Dr. John Mathews, bariatric surgeon affiliated with Princeton Baptist Medical Center
