Welcome to the site. There does not seem to be much action on the Maritimes site. Which is sad because there are a whole lot of obese people.
Anyway to your questiion. At this time there are no Dr's doingwls in NS.
The only local DR. is in Moncton N.B. His waiting time is 2-5 years and that is after who knows how long of a wait just to get to see him.
Now if you are looking for MSI to cover our surgery they will pay for the RNY but not the Band, but they will only pay a small portion.
Since I chose to have the lap-band ,for my own reasons. I am going to Ontario. Dr.Chris Cobourn is the Dr. What I have read so far is that he seems to be good at what he does,and comes with a long list of credits. Since I am selfpaying my waiting time is only 3 months.
Where in NS I live in the Annapolis Valley. Hope that answered your question. If you have any question just write. Good luck
Bye for now
