Is Belite Weight still in business??



Recommended Posts

I'm trying to help a friend with no insurance do some research but I haven't seen anything recent online about them. I haven't even gotten a response from my email to them yet.

I used Belite, I highly do NOT recommend them! They are about the money & that's it! I went to them for my sleeve back in 2011, when I would have a question they would not respond, or they would keep putting me off, but if I held back on a payment they were on the phone & sending me lots of emails demanding their money.

As I said, I do NOT recommend them!

I AGREE whoe Heartily!! My hubby had his Sleeve done June of 2016. They are about the money all the way!! Plus the hospital we were at left tons to be desired!! They didn't use gloves, or hand santizer!! We had to bring our own wash clothes!! The $50.00 we paid for his pain meds were a joke!! I could go on and on but...I just got told yesterday that I talk to much about my husbands surgery and my own!! Far be it from me I better shut up. Good Luck

OK, I have to add this, it is NOT the Dr's that I had an issue with, I found the Dr's to be great, it was the group that recruited for the Dr's, which was Belite, JoAnne especially, now granted the week that I went her son had been killed, but she was still there, as was 3 others, and as I said, I wouldn't give you .02 cents for the group at all!

Thanks everyone! Lauri and Sherri, thank you for sharing some of your experiences. That's why we're here. I want to hear the good and the bad. There should never be a problem with saying who you would, or wouldn't recommend. It all factors in with helping others make informed decisions.

Thank you so much!! That is exactly what I said to him. Also, I am sure that he talks about his journey too. He made it out to be that I was stealing another guys thunder without being asked too. When I was only trying to relay that my hubby had kept trying to get WLS and he weighed over 500#'s when he started way back when!! Oh well, Water under the bridge!! Again Thank you!!

I used BeLiteWeight one month ago and had a great experience! Dr. Rodriguez was awesome and told me what to expect after the surgery so I wouldn't freak out. So far I am down 20 lbs. :)

Which hospital were you at? They just changed us from Star Medica to Hospital Angeles

BeLiteWeight has two hospitals and two surgeons. Sometimes they use Hospital Angeles. I was at Star Medica, but both are used.

I’m now 6 months out. Lost 45 pounds, maintained through the holidays. Looking forward to getting back on track soon (after my birthday, which is tomorrow). Very happy with BeLiteWeight and the hospital I was at.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
