Anyone banded with Beverly Hills Physicians?



Recommended Posts

Hello Banded Buddies.....

Just wondering if anyone was banded at any of the several locations that Beverly Hills Physicians has? I have a friend that might want to go to get the band there and know nothing about them.

Thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I was banded by the Beverly Hills physicians in December. I use the Covina location for my fills. I really like these surgeons. I had excellent care and no complaints. They are real good about giving you good information and answering all your questions. I would recommend them.:thumbup:

They're a scam. I got my lap band done with them. I was a "insurance pay" which they do an insurance verification before you can get in to make an appt. Once they've verified how insurance is going to work, they tell you how much you must pay out of pocket and the rest will be covered by the insurance. Well, for me I pay $4000 out of pocket and the rest my insurance was supposed to pay for. After over a year and 4 months later, my first band already failed, I had to get a new one. The new one looks like it may have problems too, but the worst of all, I just got a bill for $8500 for my first surgery. They explain that if you can't afford the bill during your consultation you can write a letter stating so and they won't come after you and they just claim it on their taxes. Turns out then when you pay your bill, they're still going to send additional bills so they can claim you on their taxes (unless I want to pay the $8500 out of pocket).

So, long story short, they run very shady business practices and make their patients help them do so by keep billing them unnecessary bills. I'm excited to see what bills I get next over the next year and a half from them :w00t:

Wow so sorry to hear about the problems. My friend was banded there just after I posted but she has not had problems yet. I hope never. But YOUR good news is that you have lost lots! CONGRATS!

I was informed that I confused Beverly Hills Surgeons with Top Surgeons. Please disregard my previous message. And, thanks to the person who sent me the message.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
