I have not met with Dr. Cudjoe yet, but have heard good things about him. I will be able to see him on December 4th when I attend his lecture that all patients are required to attend. I will update again after the lecture. I am hopefully switching to Dr. Cudjoe because he is much closer to home and his hospital is in my "network" for insurance. So far I have only dealt with Cindy from his office but she was very kind and helpful. I am supposed to be receiving a packet of information to get my file started, so once I get that I will also update this.

Wow! They sure are thorough! My packet was more like a book. They want to know a LOT about you, but that's good. I have it all filled out and since I work in Alma I am going to drop it off at their office. I want my "file" started as soon as possible!! Will let you know more as I go along.

I haven't actually "met" Dr. Cudjoe but I was at his lecture on December 4th. I really liked him. He seemed really concerned about overweight people and what they have to go through. I have an appointment with him December 18th so I'll be able to tell you more after that.

I met with Dr. Cudjoe on the 18th and really like him! He is very pleasant and easy to work with. He seemed surprised at all that I had done already. The only thing he said that made me nervous was "you might have too much information." I hope not! It's taken me too long to get it together. As far as I know they sent all of my information to the insurance company so now it is up to them. As soon as they get an approval (which they'd better) Lori will contact me about the appointments for an endoscopy, stress test and also meet with the nutritionist. Everyone I have talked to said not to expect to hear anything until after the 1st of the year. They are probably right, but it is so hard for me to wait! But as soon as I hear anything, I will let you all know! I plan on making the website known to my doctor(s) so that maybe they can access it too. I know it has been a huge help to me!

I still like Dr. Cudjoe very much-he is very caring and compassionate and always willing to answer questions. I have found that the aftercare is mostly what YOU make it, not the doctor. They have you answer a questionnaire every time you come in and they refer to it, but I didn't find too much emphasis on aftercare in general. Both of his surgical competence and bedside manner are great-he really is a very caring man. I would definitely recommend him to other people.
