I'm going through Hamilton and I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what happens at the internist appointment and how soon after that do I meet with the surgeon and get a date. I'm sorry if this has been asked before. I haven't seen topics about the internist so I'm a bit clueless. Thanks for any information you can provide.

There's currently quite a wait to see the psychologist and dietician. I saw the internist in May and I've had my scope and all my imaging already. I see the dietician and psychologist next week, then I should have my appointment with the surgeon sometime in September. I'm looking at probably November for surgery.

Forgot to say, I know they're currently booking into like January for the dietician and psychologist/SW appointments. Those will probably be your longest wait.

Thanks for the replies. I have already had my scope, ecg, ultrasound, blood work, social worker, and dietician. The only things that I have left are meeting with the internist on October 1st and then I don't know what comes next.
