Patient of the Month
“Thomas E. Steele“
In April 2015, I came to Dr. Bilof as a 5’10”, 269 pound man. I was on medication for high blood pressure and cholesterol and my primary physician told me that in 3 – 5 years I would be diabetic if things didn’t change. I had a mild case of sleep apnea and suffered from arthritis in my knees that was exacerbated by working out. I tried everything to lose weight on my own including running, tennis, lifting weights and prepared a majority of my own meals
