Hi! I am scheduled for my VSG with Dr. Vadim Gritsus at Valley Hospital on 8/3. He and his office staff have been just fantastic!! I saw him last year too but I wasn't ready.

Two years ago I saw a Dr. B. at Hackensack and I was NOT impressed. Experienced but horrible attitude - "Don't come back until you know which surgery you want to have"! I was like, no, I'm just not coming back... VSG wasn't an option with him so I'm glad I waited!!

Dr. Gritsus has answered every single question of mine with patience and respect. His staff is polite and their goal is to make the process as smooth as possible. They will refer you to a psych and nutritionist if you don't have your own, and they are on the ball as far as working with insurance to get preapproval.

I just joined so I don't know if you've posted since this - where are you at in the process now?

Good luck!

I am in NJ and I just had my sleeve done on 8/6/12 with Dr. Trivedi at Hackensack Hospital. Feel free to ask me/inbox me any questions. I am VERY happy with my decision.

      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.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
