    JUST DO IT! Honestly, it was seriously the best decision I've ever made. I was terrified and even more embarrassed to have VSG but I feel so amazing now.

    Gastric sleeve went well...Add on, not so much

    The gastric sleeve surgery went great. The surgeon was very good. The staff was great too. The recovery went well and the staff was very attentive. I would not recommend getting the vasectomy at the same time. The surgeries contradict each other. One says you should not walk if you can avoid it, the... *

    Average response time: 1 day 4 hours 8 minutes

    What's this? This is the average amount of time that it takes lately for this provider to respond to a patient for consideration. The way it works, is when a client expresses interest in receiving services from a provider, the provider must accept the client as a patient into their practice. Our one-of-a-kind platform makes it so simple! You'll complete a questionnaire, and your responses will be presented to the providers that you're considering. The purpose of this process of allowing providers to select their patients ensures that expectations are in line, and it gives you a chance to get to know each other. This unique process makes it easier for clients, especially those with complex cases, to get approved for the procedure they desire, than more traditional methods. With our easy to use platform, you're not on your own.
