My job changed insurances right in the middle of me trying to get approved and instead I was denied. The switch was to Aetna and fter only 1 business day I was approved. Thanks to all the staff at Dr. Goyal's office. They are the best.

Surgeon: Ajay Goyal, MD, FACS
I am hoping that this operation will put me in the right path to not only being a better person , but as to being a better mother. I would love to do all the things with my son that I can't do now I love you baby
It has been 2 and 1/2 months since my surgery and I am doing great. I had no complications. Came home on Sunday and started walking for 30 minutes on Monday. I have lost 62 pounds and just purchased a treadmill and I ride my exercise bike. I stopped exercising for 3 weeks because I have knee problems and my weight lose showed it. Thank God my knees are better and I am back to exercising as much as I can. Compliments are great and my social life is better because my esteem is up there and I don't want to stay home anymore like I did. Hope everyone feels like do. God Bless You Dr. Goyal AND ALL YOUR STAFF J and J you are the best. Congrats on your wedding!!!!!!!!!!!!
12/10/04---- it has been 5 months and I am down 80 pounds WOW I am so happy now if only I can see it.
3/9/05---- Hi!!! It has been a long time. On Jan 8th I was down 90 lbs and got into a very bad car accident, that left me with broken bones in my back, whiplash in my neck and staples on the top of my head. I was in bed for over a month. I was so upset because I thought being immobile would keep me from losing weight. Well it has been 2 months and i have lost another 35 pounds. So far I have lost 125 pounds and I am going for surgery this coming Wednesday for my back. According to my Doctor this surgery should make me normal in 24 hours. I can't wait hopefully I will be able to join a gym and get rid of all this flab I have from not exercising.
3/18/05 My surgey was scheduled for the 16th but the day of sugery i woke up with VERTIGO My world was spinning in more than one way. So now I wait for this to clear and reschedule the surgery. I miss work, I miss my kids, but most of all I miss being me
4/11/05 I had my operation on Wednesday the 6th I went home 3 hours after surgery. Everyone was so surprized. I even got calls from the hospital. They were shocked that I was home. Anyway I got the ok to drive. I am driving my car just afraid to drive my bus. He wanted me to wait to go back to work, But I said I would wait 3 days and see how I felt. I am at a plateau in the the hospital the scale said I lost another 4 pounds guess it will be slow now. It is ok cause it still is coming off. Down 129 and still counting I love you baby for being there then and now..
4/13/05 I drove the bus today for the first time. Oh my God it hurts so bad but I had help and I was ok Don't think I can work. I would rather stay home and do my exercises and then lay down if I need to so I can get back to normal. I just hope he understands.
4/21/05 I am going back to work on May 2nd. Can't wait to be back and be my kind of normal. Been trying to drive a little taking pain killers once in awhile. I have so much to do and now little time to do it. My weight loss seems to be stable . Hope it starts up again. I need to see a weight loss depression is setting in.
5/07/05 Went back to work on Monday. It was ok, hurting a little after the surgery. But it feels good. I am trying to do as much as I can hoping that the more you do the better it gets and I need the exercise. Just can't jump or walk down a hill fast. I went to my son's play yesterday and All the parents and teachers told me how good I look. For the first time in years I felt good.
Dr Goyal is a sweetheart. When I first met him, something clicked and like many others my thoughts were he can change my life.
Well I am waiting for my surgery. But all the time I have been to the office, I have had nothing but respect. From day one I was told everything nothing was left for questioning. Descibed each surgery in detail
Thank you so much Aetna you are the best approved in less than 24 hours after being denied by another insurance company
