My journey started 5 years ago when I attended one of dr. Roller cemenars on weight loss surgery. I signed up with a community organization that said if I followed their guidelines for 12 months they would pay for the surgery. Of course 10 months in they decided to stop funding this portion of the program. I were orked hard over the next 4 years cleaned up my credit purchased a home, then was able to take out a medical loan for the proceedure. Long story short In the meantime I had started a job at a local bank the day I went in for my initial consultation, after I saw the dr, nutritionist,dietitian and then the financial person she asked me if I was self pay or did I want to go through my insurance. Cone to find out that my new job's insurance covered my surgery just had to complete 6 monthly visits yeah a little jumping through the hoops but I returned the LOAN and let my insurance pay for my surgery. Now here I am 12 days post OP. So excited to see what my new future holds for me and my family thanks to Dr. Roller's team.
