Hi Leighmack,

Have you used V. Innance?  I go today for a consultation for RNY Revision.

I switched my wellcare insurance to horizon nj health.... because a dr right by me took horizon nj health only.. i have noticed alot of drs in this area are dropping wellcare.. my surgery is Oct 21st my first appt with dr was June 23rd so took me bout 4 months and was approved in like 4 days

my dr is Jordan Garrison he is in Jersey City NJ works through Christ hospital he is a very nice guy quick and straight to the point

Hi Leigh,

Do you have current contact information for Dr. Garrison? I reached out to Christ Hospital and he is no longer on staff there. 


Please email the the information to me [email protected].


Thank you,


Can't wait to be happy in my skin!
