Topic: Need New Surgeon or PA for Saline Pull...Update:Medical Records (RMC Anniston, AL Dr. Bryan Freeman)

Well, I'm 12 years out. Dr. Bryan Freeman was my doctor along with PA Tim Barnes. Have had acid reflux bad for the past 4 years or so and now starting to have trouble keeping food down when I first start eating. Had a recent barium swallow and endoscopy. Will get official results in 2 weeks but radiologist said it looks like my band may have slipped a little bit. Haven't had any other problems over the years.

I'm trying to find a bariatric surgeon to see who will see patients this far out and who doesn't see their regular surgeon since he's no longer practicing here. Need suggestions so i can get some saline pulled out and maybe that will help with the acid reflux. I've been at my sweet spot since just before Dr. Freeman left. Can't recall what year that was but it's been awhile.

Can't get my records from RMC-Anniston because they report they don't have any for me. All my information has remained the same over the years with the exception of just recently getting married. And if they go by social number it still shouldn't be a problem.

I hope there is someone out there who can refer me to another surgeon or PA just to have saline checks if nothing else. (45 mins from south Annistion and 45 mins from south Birmingham I459/I20 corridor.

***Update: I just got a message that RMC only carry records for 10 years. So...I still need a doc or PA.

Have you found another doctor? I need one now after finding out my band may have slipped a little. I never got my records either. I got banded in 2007 by Dr. Freeman.

Topic: Smaller town surgeons

Has anyone used a surgeon in a smaller town outside of Birmingham or Huntsville? I've heard good things about Dr. Groves in Marshall County. Also as I'm fairly young I don't really have credit and I will be self pay....I make a good income that I can easily cover payments with but curious if I should wait for a consultation until I have half of a down payment due no credit line.

Hello

The last time we checked this surgeon was taking Medicaid.

Give them a call and let me know if this works for you. If not, we will keep looking!

I found out he is in California and no longer does bariatric surgery, but does still

practice medicine. You can google his name and "California", and find him.

I'm having to loose as much as I can, because I'm having hip problems. Would like to loose another 40 pounds before my surgery approval.
