Who you can see and where you can have your surgery may have a lot to do with who your insured by, and which medical group/IPA you're with if you have H M O insurance. Are you H M O, or P P O?

In that case, there are large bariatric surgery centers at UCSF, CPMC (San Francisco); John Muir Concord (both Dr. Chin and his group, and Dr. Kwan and her colleagues; Valleycare in Pleasanton, and Alta Bates-Summit in Oakland (First Surgical). I believe there is also one down the Peninsula, but I don't know for certain.

My PCP's office had such trouble with Dr. Chin's office staff that I was switched to Dr. Kwan and I'm very, very happy with both her and her staff. I manage a lot of clients who use both First Surgical and Valleycare, and they are happy with both. I don't have any first hand experience with the San Francisco locations or surgeons.

I will say Dr Chins office was a hassle but I put up with it because of his reputation as a surgeon. I found one person in the office who got things done and that's who I work with solely now.
