Roger Nagy, MD
Dr. Nagy was very helpful. He drew pictures on the lab table to help me understand what he was talking about. He answered questions that I did not even know I should ask until he brought it up.rnrnDr. Nagy has been awesome, when I finally got my insurance approval, he got me right in for my appointment and scheduled my surgery for a date that was easy for me. I asked him a bazillion questions that day, and he patiently answered each and everyone. He as truely listened to me and has but so many pre-cautionary things into place for both before and after surgery. I feel so very confident to have him operate on me, as he does not hide things and tells you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear.rnrnI had heard that some of the people in the office were not supportive or helpful, but I have not had that experience at all. Everyone has been so helpful and pleasant.rnrn01/11/2009 Dr. Nagy just took out my Gall Bladder, I still find that he is very attentive to my needs and really cares about my care. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing any surgery he preforms!!rnrn
Latest Surgery Support Comments
I have been researching this for a very long time, never really thinking that I would be a good candidate for the surgery. After having limited success at weight watchers for 3 years, I finally asked my PCP what he thought of WLS. He told me that if I had asked that question a few years ago he would have told me no as he did not feel it was safe enough, now though he would gladly recommend me if that was what I wanted.
I received my referral, made the necessary appointments, and within a week had my consult. Over the next 4 months everything was smooth sailing....or so I thought. The insurance DENIED ME!!!!!!!!!! They told us at first they would accept the 3 years of WW as the diet because it was recommended by my PCP, but when it came down to it they said no, as I did not meet with the DR every month, so since the person who told us (the surgeon's office and me) yes no longer works there we really do not have much of an appeal. I am going to try as I also embark on my medically supervised 6 mo diet.
I will be entering this phase of the process on my own as my local support group changed their meeting nights and I can no longer attend, and I do not have any family in the area. I know though that I can do it, and it is the right path for me to take.
