I am in the process of getting approved from ins. But several friends have gone to piedmont for wls espinal and bo, are suppose to be amazing surgeons. I met with both and I am really confident and comfortable with them doing my surgery.
That is what I had found out as well. but I don't feel like i can wait any longer on a maybe/no. It will take our legislators to change what is covered by our plan. Meanwhile, all those co morbities that the plan does cover that would have to be tested for by C.O.E. (riverside surgical) I am making sure my PCP sent me for my tests. And now i have confirmed my Sleep apnea. One less thing to self pay on.
I too am a State employee. no coverage. I also am looking into going to Dr Aceves in Mexicali. I have not firmed up a date because I have to wait for June 2014 before I can have funding. I was told the same price. I had spent some time on making list of Drs that I was interested in. I send out inquiry emails to them. and Dr Aceves' person is the only one that has gotten back to me. That in itself means a lot to me. I also work in Columbia.

Dr. Morris Washington's office does offer a very good support group and I apologize if you were not called back. Effie Aukerland, his dietitian does a great job. The next two for the year will be -
