Why did you change your mind not to have it done at LHV?

Lehigh valley hospital has about a 600 dollar program fee and st. Luke's didn't have a fee. The reason st.lukes doesn't have one Is because they don't bill for your visits with the nut and social worker and stuff. I believe that Lehigh valley doesn't bill either but they still get there money from the program fee. I'm really happy with st. Luke's. another thing about st. Luke's is that doctor el chaar and doctor Claros did there fellowship in bariatric surgery and that's all they do. There rate of complications is very very low and they are very good at what they do

I had mine done at Geisinger in Danville PA. A friend of my moms had hers done at St Lukes and said the care was excellent.
