Tuesday is your day! Just remember you are on the journey of a lifetime. Try to enjoy every minute. It may sound weird now, but know that you are cared for and prayed for here, and all too soon this will be but a memory and you will be an inspiration to someone else. I am waiting for you on the losers' bench! ~JudyAnne~

heres a few , not sure where they are from you you could also call the local hospital , and ask the nurses desk Dr. Barry Haicken Phone 727-586-3751 http://www.drhaicken.com/ has two listings on here for medicare ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Dr Nestor F. de la Cruz-Munoz ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ OMNI Surgical Weight Loss Center Phone 321-724-9997 http://www.realpagessites.com/omnihealthcare/ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~` Leonard Benitez, M.D. Phone Number : 954-779-7994 theres some of the drs that DO accept medicare in florida, and thats only going through like 10 listings, so , im sure you should be able to find a doc ! good luck!

ok , heres what i would do , first of all, our database here lists literally DOZENS of bariatric surgeons , you could, collect some phone numbers and call around , thats one way, or go to the find peers section of the site, look up your state, and page through the post ops, checkng each ones insurance info , this will be tedious, i hope someone can offer a quicker answer, but i know for a fact , if its medically nessecary, you can have the surgery, its just the issue of finding a dr who will accept it.... good luck , let me know how it goes!
