DO NOT DEAL WITH THESE PEOPLE!! They lied to me stating that they
would finance $ 2,000 of my surgery and when I gave them a deposit told
me the sales man was new and had been wrong. They then proceeded to
refund only a portion of my deposit, they kept $500 even though the
reason I canceled was them lying to me and I did not sign any
disclosures stating that $500 was non-refundable. I plan to take them
to small claims court, but this is a long, relatively expensive
procedure and no guarentee of winning. Anyway, just wanted to warn
everyone to stay away from these liars and theives!!!! :)

There has to be something more you can do to get your money back! Try going to top management or something, that sucks!

Did you pay via credit card? If so, go to your bank and let them fight it on your behalf.

Is there an Attorney General's office in your area? They may have a consumer protection division that could help you.

Not that I would use a doctor that lied to me in the beginning, but apparently they offer financing now (according to the site). So what's the difference between an existing patient or former patient?

Even if you don't get your $$ back (which is horrible), at least you didn't get started with a dishonest doctor. It happens. It happened to me and my husband and with Lap Band it's too important to have a TRUSTING relationship during aftercare.

Best of luck to you!
