Happy to answer whatever I can! Dr. Jones was my surgeon - he was excellent and I was VERY pleased with my choice. I couldn't imagine having another surgeon although I know they're all great at BIDMC. Good luck with your meeting! If you're at the point of meeting with Dr. J, I imagine you've done your nutrition classes, met with Sue and the nurses, etc. The entire program was excellent.
I had a bit of delay from the time I met with Dr. J until surgery as my insurance deniel my surgery...so, I had to appeal. But, all in all, from the time I was approved to surgery date, it was just about a month. WELL worth the wait in my opinion though! My surgery stay was also great...all the staff were so helpful and kind. I really don't have anything bad or critical to say at all. From start to fini**** was a great experience! I go back in a month for my one year follow up and I can't wait to see everyone! I haven't had a chance to get back for any of the support groups but I just may once the weather warms up! I did, however, go to the preop required meetings...went to even more than I had to because I enjoyed them so much!
Again, good luck tomorrow...hope you get your surgery date soon!
