  1. Hi, Yesterday I saw a GP for a referral. I'm just realizing now that she made it for a specific bariatric doctor she works with. I'm planning on using a different surgeon, do you think the referral still holds water? I've never dealt with my health insurance to this extent so I'm a total newbie >.< Thanks!
  2. Thank you! Of course I want the best surgeon possible but I don't have criteria. I live in nyc and there are so, so many highly qualified surgeons here. How did you chose yours?
  3. Thank you everyone! Today I saw a GP for an insurance mandated referral to see a bariatric doctor. This also marks the beginning of my 6 month monitored weight loss.
  4. My insurance requires a 6 month period of monitored weight loss before surgery and a referral to see a bariatric specialist. Today, both of those things happened. My pre op process has officially started! Is anyone else here beginning their weight loss journey?
  5. This is the first step to get the ball rolling. It's a real thing now! The seminar is January 10th! I've meticulously combed through this forum, and all of your posts have made me feel informed enough to start this process. Yay!
