So my name is Lee Magnus, I’m 37 years old 00:00:03:00
Originally I thought that maybe I would look into bariatric surgery because I’ve been
overweight my entire life 00:00:10:01
I was 323 lbs. I was realizing that I need to change something
or my whole life is going to pass me by. So I had my surgery at West Penn Hospital 00:00:19:07
There was a nurse that was there that kind of introduced Dr. Eid. The way that he speaks to I think all his
patients has always been compassion and just a genuine care for what he does. 00:00:30:09
And I felt like you know everyone genuinely cared and wanted me to feel better and do
as well as I could. 00:00:35:00
I’m three and a half years out so I’m probably about 180 now. I always wanted to do a 5k or half marathon. I’ve done a couple 5ks. I signed up for the half marathon 00:00:46:00
And I have no time goal, but you know what I’m a lot faster than I would’ve be sitting
on my couch hoping I would do this someday. I really just want the medal 00:00:55:00
If Dr. Eid has chosen West Penn Hospital to perform his surgeries then it must be one
of the best hospitals in the country.
