Self Payers in Florida



Recommended Posts

Dr wizman did my sleeve may 26 last year. was self pay, 10,600. Best thing I've ever done. Am down 138 pounds from surgery and 170 pounds total from heaviest. Wizman was fantastic and what you pay for you get a lot (hospital nights etc). I didn't get a single follow up bill like you do with insurance normally, from anyone

I live in Orlando and did my sleeve in Viera Florida .. Dr Kenneth Tieu in the Viera Hospital health first ... really good experience, I did self pay but they billed my insurance for all my blood work nutritionist and other test needed ... it's 14500. And u can pay half and make payments for the rest

I'm self pay and don't think I'm going to be able to get away with just the sleeve. I've lost all the weight before, kept it off for over a decade and then gained it back and nothing I used to do works anymore. So, I think I will have to just go with a mini gastric bypass or regular gastric bypass. Cannot afford the $19000 that costs around here, so I will be going to Mexico. Not a huge fan of that, but, I cannot find any other way. I'm hoping that my regular health insurance will cover if I have complications from my Mexico weight loss surgery. Unfortunately it does not cover weight loss surgery.

I just had a sleeve done by dr Shillingford near boca on Thursday the 20th. Self pay for $10,500 and included 2 nights in hospital . I can’t say enough about how great the doctor and hospital were -I strongly suggest you consult with him. I flew down from NJ to do it and am totally happy with the outcome , walked 2.5 miles today and feel great , am 12 lbs down from last week . I hear nightmare stories about Mexico . Dr Shillingford created a special discount price just to keep self pay people from going to Mexico . Hospital is in margate. I did a consult over the phone

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.
