Dr. Capella which is in Ramsey, New Jersey is an excellent Doctor. You should contact his office.

Hi, Kesslyn, I don't know where Gloucester County is, but I had my surgery with Dr. Elliot Goodman, who practices out of Holy Name Hospital in Teaneck (Bergen County). It might be a long trip for you, but a lot of his patients think he's worth it, including me!

Kesslyn: I've done a tremendous amount of research. I would highly recommend Dr. Vishal Mehta in Somerset (732) 745-0999. He has specialty training and his practice is 10% dedicated to bariatric surgery. Although he is in central New Jersey, it is well worth the trip. I'm just waiting for insurance company authorization. Also, Dr. Mehta is having a seminar in Princeton this Saturday, May 31st. Dr. Mehta's web site is www.mehtabariatriccenter.com By the way, I live in Swedesboro, the ride to Dr. Mehta is about 75 minutes. Dave

Hi kesslyn, I have been to west Deptford. I would think Dr. slotmen would be the closest to you. he's in Camden, He was my first pick, but I went to Dr Pasupathy in Bridgeton New Jersey .Because he didn't have a long waiting list. and it was nice to know he also works in the trauma Dept of the hosp. and also the staff do the handling of the insurance co. all you do is get your pre-op tests done and sit back for the call from the drs. staff, saying weather you are approved or whatever. and lastly because I knew where his office was without me getting a map out. His office is located cross the street from the hosp. He is just as good and I was very satisfyed. Dr. Slotmen is a very good surgeon. I don't know how long his waiting list is. But it won't hurt to check him out. e-mail me if you want to know more. take care~*~Hugs~*~
