"Kate was very professional and knowledgeable. At the same time she was caring, compassionate and made me feel as if I was her top priority. She gave me the time and energy I needed and the support to help me.
In late 2014 I was accepted for Bariatric Surgery for weight loss. I had already had a gastric band which had to be removed due to complications and had gained the weight back on.
Meeting her made me feel I was worthy and that I had a future, a future worth living. She spoke of flourishing and treating the whole person. Looking into my past, present and future – not just numbers and measurements. She was wonderful to talk to and listened to everything I said. I felt uplifted and looked forward to coming back to the hospital. I was fully prepared for the operation and what was to follow.
She is a dynamic, caring and progressive thinker. A credit to the hospital and to the medical professional... I wish to let you know that she helped me turn a lot of things around. I wish her the best and her patients are fortunate to be under her care."
"Kate didn't just help my weight loss but helped me regain my confidence in myself and my strength. If it wasn't for Kate I would still be in a situation I didn't want to be. Kate helped me more than anyone throughout my journey with you, and I am pleased to say 5 years post op I am happily married and have a very healthy active 15 month old girl. Kate not only helped me lose weight and gain the tools to keep it off she gave me a new lease on life.
Thank you isn't enough I owe Kate my life!"
