Hi I will be having surgery in the South West Medical center in lafayette,la with Dr. Cunningham. I am curious about others experiences with the hospital staff and doctors. How long does it take after the insurance approval usually for them to get the surgery schduled. Also if they filed your insurance for you how long did it take? I am a little woried about using them because they never return my phone calls and my Dr. Cunningham is not very nice. So I am worried but I am to far into it to change hospitals. Any personal experiences will help. Thanks :biggrin2:

HI I just wanted to let anyone know that my experience was good :crying: I was banded on july 16th. I gave the paper work over on monday june 23rd they filed by that friday and I was approved on that monday. So the nice ppl in the office is Kate the nutritionist and Audre. If you do go with them you have to stay on them all the time and ask lots of questions.. Everything went great for me because I did this but some other that I spoke to waited 6 weeks just for an appointment. So like my grandmaw always says the squeeky wheel gets the oil :eek: I tried to be that squeeky wheel :frown:

I had mine in Lake Charles. Womens and Childrens Hospital and Dr. Chung. Both of them were great. So glad I used them.
