  1. Hi,

    I'm a newbie just getting started with Texas Bariatric  Specialist. I just wanted to ask how was experience with Dr. Reddy and his team ? I will also have to travel to San Antonio for my surgery if everything goes well. How was your experience with the hospital ? Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated. I hope you are doing well and enjoying your journey.

    Oh ok Thank... Did you do your surgery at the Southwest General Hospital? Also, Were you told you HAD to buy their Bariatric Advantage Kit at the Pre-Op Class?! Asking because I have preop tomrrw and was told that I Have* to buy the Bariatric Advantage Kit *($300) at the class or they will cancel/Reschedule surgery.... 😕 (I really dont have the extra funds due to the holidays) Ive seen a few ppl that have been through them, but they said they weren't forced to buy it....just asking! Did they give you a Binder for stomach, or do I need to buy one before?! Thanks!
