Orientation was January 29th. It’s been 12 weeks as I was told it would take.

The lady at the clinic was less than helpful. Wouldn’t look up my file and just said it will still be a few weeks and they’ll call me when I come up in the queu

So my orientation was January 29th. I’m part of the online support groups for WLS in Ontario and Humber River specifically. I’ve asked around and I can’t find a single person who had a December or January orientation who’s gotten an appointment

Finally had my orientation last week on Tuesday January 29th! It was interesting, but I already knew most of what we learned because I had read the book a few times and done a lot of research at home. Now it’s back to waiting for my next appointment.

I got the results from my sleep study that my family doctor referred me for. Turns out I have moderate sleep apnea and require a CPAP.

Does anyone know what the cost of these machines end up being after OHIP coverage?

I’m so glad I di

I finally received an orientation date! January 29th! I'm literally counting down the days!

I have been chasing this surgery for 4 years. I asked my family doctor twice to refer me to the network and he refused both times. The first time he ref

I’m sure you’ve all been there. I’ve been referred early November and I’m waiting to hear about orientation at this point.

I was referred the second weekend of November. I still have not received a letter or a phone call from the hospital I was referred to (originally TWH, but switched to HRRH two days later due to location).

Should I be calling to follow up at th

I finally had my referral sent in and was told I’d be going through TWH. Someone on a WLS group said she had orientation there today and was told the wait time is 1.5-2 years currently.

I know it’s a possibility to switch clinics before or

I finally bit the bullet and approached a walk in doctor for a referral. He did try to sell me in other directions including a doctor who does a metabolic diet of some sort that is quite far away from me and I would need to

Hello! I had a doctor my entire life and he’s just retired in April. Unfortunately I’m in an area where it’s extremely difficult to find a family doctor taking new patients so I’m left without a PCP.

I don’t have any other doctors or

Is there a way to check if the Network has received your referral? 

I asked my doctor for a referral and I am due back to his office tomorrow for a physical exam and blood work and all that... I trust my doctor will send it in but just wonderin

Hi everyone! 

I am new to the community. After months of deliberation I've decided to try weight loss surgery (VSG) to help me keep my weight under control. 

I've suffered with my weight since I was 12. I'm now 28 and I am sitting at th
