I  rarely needed medical care prior to my sleeve life. But since then, my PCP and I have become best friends lol.

Hi All :) 

I recently had my surgery as a self-pay in Montreal w/ Dr. Gagner - no complications to date! Praise the lord. 

I am wondering if there are any other Mexico/Montreal self-pay folks here from Ontario and how you've dealt with

Hello! 

I had my lapband removed in 2015, and now considering VSG and willing to selfpay, as I am not interested in waiting any longer. Anyone had VSG done recently with Dr Gagner, most of the posts are from 2013 or 2014

Thanks!
