Would really like to hear back from anybody who has found a doctor in So Ca who is willing to work with patients who had the surgery in Mexico? I went to my GP yesterday and she was dead set against any wls. I didn't even tell her I was planning to go to Mexico. :)

What is everybody doing with regards to this? Dr. Kelly told me he'd consider me local and I could do follow ups there but haven't outlined any details yet because this is so new and I'm scheduled a few months from now. Would really like to hear from others on this...

hi FM-

I am a SoCal girl myself and have chosen the NEW Program in Newport Beach. A close family friend of mine had her sleeve done there. I actually went for a consultation a year ago, but wasn't being supported by my husband and family. Good news is, now they are on board so I am back at testing and getting my mind ready.

I highly recommend the NEW Program so far, they have been extrememly efficient and really helpful.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi Carly,

I did look into the NEW program. If I'm correct (it's been a few months!) it cost nearly $20K for a sleeve there. And I'm not sure about this, but one of the places in Newport Beach does it as an outpatient procedure and it cost an additional $3K per night for the hospital *if* you need it! Since insurance isn't covering any of this, that wasn't really an option for me. I was very impressed by their website, etc. but it also took them a few weeks to get back to me. So it didn't seem to be a good option. I hope it works out better for you!!! Thank you for the info!!
