MEDICAID AND MEDICARE SURGEONS LIST!

Member Services
on 8/31/12 8:10 pm - Irvine, CA
Hello Members,

On a daily basis we get calls from members in desperate need of surgeons that will accept Medicaid and or Medicare for Bariatric surgery.  It breaks our hearts when we have to say "we don't know of any surgeons in your state we can refer you to". 

Can you please help us? If you know of any surgeons in your state that accepts Medicaid and or Medicare, will you list their:

Name

If they accept Medicare and or Medicaid

Phone number

Facility

Address

This list will remain here for our members to access and use.

Thank you so much!!!

ObesityHelp,

Doctor Gomez at IU Bariatric Center and I believe there # is (317)6302524. I know he accepts medicaid for a fact. Dr. Kaderabuk at St. Vincent Carmel(not recommended). Their are not too many doctors that accept medicaid in Indiana

My husband had gastric bypass 5 years ago and Dr. Kaderabek performed his surgery. He has had no problems and the doctor was so nice and informative.

He was my surgeon too......the biggest mistake I ever made! I don't think my body will ever be right again. But I'm interested in why they don't recommend him either.

Dr Kaderabek in Carmel @ St. Vincents accepts Medicaid. He did my surgery in May and I really like him. He was a little quiet and seems shy but would answer any questions I had. I had to be readmitted for a sm. bowel obstruction but other than that I've had no problems. During my hospital stay he was very attentive and caring. Cheryl
