So I won the lawsuit against SLIMBAND IN TORONTO how do i collect



Recommended Posts

So to make a very long story short, I paid 16,000 dollars to the SLIMMBAND CLINIC IN TORONTO, TO INSERT BY LAPOROROCOPY AND GENERAL ANESTHETIC A DEVICE WHICH WAS TO CONTROL MY APPETITE AND HELP ME TO LOSE AND MAINTAIN MY WEIGHT, FOR MY HEALTH.

I was blind sighted, I should have done my homework, this very clinic and doctor had jumped ship on hundreds of other innocent unsuspecting, patients. I went through the courts and won the case against the clinic, big deal they shut their doors one week prior to my court date.

My only hope is to tell anyone who even thinks about this way of life in the Toronto area be certain it is not the same owner, nor the same doctor that took my money and left me with a nonfunctioning piece of silicone band in my abdomen. Three surgeries later and many heart aches and physical discomfort I had the monster removed.DO NOT BE FOOLED THEY HIRE SKINNY PEOPLE WHO TELL YOU THEY HAD THE SAME SURGERY. I HAVE ASLO BEEN IN CONTACT WITH PATIENTS THAT ENDED UP WITH SEVERE INFECTIONS AND MANY COMPLICATIONS.

I would love to chat with you, so happy you went after them, they need to be held responsible. This has truly been the biggest mistake of my life. So much pain and suffering and no care, no support....abandoned!

How can this happen?

I have had the surgery too. I lost 143 pounds. By not eating and vomiting ALOT

I was thinking I was eating too much at once. 3 crackers and a piece of marble cheese did it for me one day. I would be at work and sick. It was getting to be awful. So after 7 years I had the band removed, I was putting weight back on anyway. I feel better, although I am gaining weight. I would like to know who you went to as a lawyer. I do not care about a lot of money, really just want my $16000.00 back. This was to be a life long commitment and after 7 years I am done!!! Please help! I hope you got your money!

I think a class action lawsuit should be filed to covered the cost of removal and the pain and suffering that patients have gone through. Would anybody know how to get that started?

Yes it would be nice to get a refund , that would at least help cover the revision costs but its unlikely to happen

I did a quick Google search about this. Man! I can't believe that **** weasel of a butcher is still practicing medicine! He is foul! If I were a terrible person I'd wish he's meet a butcher of equal evil in a dark alley. Oh wait I'm not good, I'm Sin! Yay! Now I can hope he gets a lobotomy!
