"Everything was explained in great deal. He and his staff were very professional, knowledgable and upbeat. The surgery was virtually painless for me (it felt similar" to when I had my gallbladder removed). I highly recommend him.

"I decided to join the gym after my friend told me she went here. It is small and not always busy like Onelife where I used to go. The gym equipment is more than" adequate and they show you how to use everything. They were very friendly and answered all of my questions.

The surgery went fine. I WOULD NOT HOWEVER HAVE THE SURGERY AT THEIR
FACILITY. MORE THAN LIKELY YOUR INSURANCE WILL NOT COVER THE SURGERY IN
THEIR FACILITY. Pay the extra ad go to the hospital. And the hospital is
safer (think

).
I would recommend you BEWARE of their assessment of your insurance all
together. I was told that the procedure would not be covered under my
insurance. So I put the cost (approx $14,000) on a credit card. Eight
months later I contact my insurance about my sleeve procedure and THEY
WOULD COVER IT. So I filed a claiM...only to be told by Dr

's
jOURNEYLITE office that the procedure was actually $38,000 (they were
giving me a "bargain" at $14,000 because the insurance would not pay)
and any more $$ that my insurance paid they would take. This is AFTER I
PAID $14,000. They did refund approx $4000 from the "Dr

" side of
this facility, but the surgical part they re-billed as $38,000 when I
requested they send the info to my insurance
It's a scam. I also have Medicare but they did not process my claim thru Medicare.
If I were to do it again I would go to the one at

Staff was friendly and professional. Wait time for my appointment was about 5-10 min while I filled out my paperwork. No up sells or gimmicks. Only treatments tailored to my weightloss needs. Reasonably priced compared to other places in town. What can I say, I lost a lot of weight so I'm happy! The physicians are great and seem to really care.

Well, my reason for going in was to just talk to physician about my weight loss options. What I got was my name called, then they took my blood pressure, temp, weight. Next thing I know they say $99.95. The next step was blood work (which I've never heard the results) and an ekg (they asked my if I've ever had an abnormal one). After looking at it for a while I asked if it was ok and they said "yea, it was just too close to your phone". After that the Dr came in (never made eye contact). Rambled off a bunch of stuff, wrote 2 prescriptions, and sent me on my way. This is a pill mill and they do not make the patients safety their number one priority like it should be.

The whole office is amazing, especially with handling insurance paperwork. I had previously seen 3 other doctors and they couldn't get things done like Dr.

' office could. She is very friendly and spends time answering all my questions. Because of this great patient care, she is not always punctual for appointments. Their follow-up care is great and I can call anytime.

that day - and he would be on vacation starting the next day. I obviously did not reschedule - went to the program at Unity - which couldn't ahve been more friendly. I have advised my benefit provider with this feedback on which I was told I was not the first - and they have since stopped recommending that office. If you don't mind going through like a sheep - try it - he is said to be one of the best - however - if you have a quesiton - it is "buyer beware!".

They were pretty good. My physician recommended them to me. It was pretty easy. If you don't like meat and like carbs it is not the diet for you. The weight just came off. It worked. It is a regular doctor's office. There are two doctors and they are really nice. You pay as you go. The people behind the desk were really nice too. I met my goal.

He is a very excellent and qualified doctor. He gives you a lot of information from his seminars. He has an excellent staff. They are awesome. He understands his patients and encourages you. He informs you of everything he does and what you need to do as a patient.

After weeks of hopeful anticipation and scraping together the quoted $9,990.00 cost of lap-band surgery, I went to see Dr.
Portland Gastric Bypass Doctors Provider Name Locked
. It was a
Portland Gastric Bypass Doctors Provider Name Locked
, devastating, horrific disappointment!
First turn off was that I had to sign a waiver that they could take photos of me (before and after) to use in **advertising** and also sound bytes of my voice. Did NOT like that at all.
Secondly, he came in and he was almost as fat as I am! I found it a bit disconcerting to have an extremely overweight WEIGHT-LOSS Dr. tell ME how to loose weight!!!
Thirdly, the Dr. obviously didn't give a "flying Walenda" about me, my health or my questions. He started out by asking me "which surgery do you want?" I told him that I was trying to decide between the lap-band and the lap-band with plication - what did he recommend? He told me that "he expected his patients top have done the research on what surgery THEY wanted on their own and make their decision before coming to him." THAT also turned me off. I explained to him that I did not get enough information about the benefits of one over the other at the seminar. The only thing I had to base a decision on was that the Lap-Band with the plication was $400.00 more expensive than the regular lap-band. So he said a few words about the difference in the two and (of course) suggested that I get the more expensive option. (Not a big surprise there!)
Then the coup-de-
Portland Gastric Bypass Doctors Provider Name Locked
. He told me that since I weigh over 350 pounds, that I could not have the surgery at the hospital "in the city". I had to have it done at the
Portland Gastric Bypass Doctors Provider Name Locked
Regional Hospital, but that I was *almost* too fat to have it done there. (Their weight limit is 450 pounds.) AND - since I had to go to *that* hospital, "it was going to be a little more expensive". I asked how MUCH more expensive, and he said $5,000.00!!! That's half again the cost we were quoted! He said that they "didn't give their "self-pay" patients the same kind of a break that the other hospital does. BUT - if I could "get my weight down to under 350 pounds, I could save that money."Feeling totally sucker-punched, I replied, "IF I COULD LOOSE THAT MUCH WEIGHT ON MY OWN, I WOULD NOT BE SITTING HERE!!!"
So, he sent his nurse/finance person in to talk to us.I told her that we had been quoted a price of $9,900.00 and that was to include the cost of the Dr. appt, tests, dietician, psychology appt, surgery, anesthesia and hospital cost. And she said that "she was very sorry, but we were quoted the wrong price!" So I said, you should TELL people this at the seminar (which you are required to attend before you can even get an appt. with the Dr.). And her reply was that the seminar was to educate people about the surgery procedure. Not the cost of it. Funny, I received the cost information and it didn't say a WORD about cost being different if you weighed over 350 pounds! (I wonder what happens to people who weigh over 450 pounds!)
And THEN, as she was going over the cost of having the surgery done at
Portland Gastric Bypass Doctors Provider Name Locked
, I noticed another figure listed. Besides costing $5,000.00 more for the surgery, you had to pay an ADDITIONAL $750.00 for the Anesthesiologist ***AND*** you were required to purchase their (
Portland Gastric Bypass Doctors Provider Name Locked
Regional's) major medical insurance in case there were any complications from your surgery!!!!!!!!!!!! Tack on another another chunk there.
Our insurance will NOT cover Bariatric Surgery, so I have to "self-pay" and I guarantee you, I will not be paying anything to this Dr. OR
