You can reach Dr. Kelly at drramoskelly@wlsclinic.com and his assistant Omar at info@wlsclinic.com. Also, Omar's phone number (I believe this is his cell number) is: 1-619-395-5347.

This information is 7 months+ old (I had my surgery is May, but it should still be accurate.)

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kelly and his team. I had wonderful care from touch-down to take-off and I am thrilled with my surgery outcome, progress and results!

Good luck!

The contact info I use is the same as Webchickadee gave above! I am working with Omar on the arrangements for my Feb. 2nd VSG.

Omar sent me an email a few weeks ago saying he is not with Dr. Kelly anymore. He said he was with another doctor... I can't remember the name off hand but I could look if anyone wants to know. He emailed me to ask if maybe when my hubby has surgery next year if he would rather use the new doc.

Your post actually makes some sense... I was thinking about it and realized Omar had not written to me last but another woman. The same email address worked though.

I was quoted $6200 for my high BMI, but watch for specials... One he has had going for the fall is just ending.

Yep...I was surprised. I looked at the email and it came on Dec 15th. He said he is working with Dr. Illan now. He said this doc has been assisting Dr. Kelly for 5 years and was in on my surgery and has done 500 of them on his own. He also said that this other doc would do my hubby's surgery for $4000. While I love the price and Omar...and I'm sure Dr. Illan is great...I just don't think I could send my hubby to anyone but Dr. Kelly. I had such an easy surgery and recovery, not to mention results, and I want the same great experience for my husband. Plus 500 surgeries doesn't sound like a lot and I want someone who has seen it all and will knows what to do if God forbid something bad happens. I have complete confidence in Dr. Kelly and you will be in great hands! If I HAD to complain about anything it might be that pre/post op diets were a little unorganized. I got a different one than my sleeve buddy that was sleeved the day after me and mine said to stay on Clear liquids for 3 weeks! I emailed them and asked them if the were custom diets and they apologized and said they promise they weren't trying to starve me to death lol. If thats all I have to complain about I'm doing pretty darn good ;) Good luck on everything! The sleeve will be the best decision you ever made :)

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
