Recommendations for Surgeons PA-Southcentral



Recommended Posts

Hi, I am meeting with Hopkins regarding the endoscopic sleeve procedure in Baltimore but also wanted to look into a regular gastric sleeve. I am self pay and looking for recommendations for surgeons in my area. York, Harrisburg, Lancaster. I could go as far as Philly but it there are a lot of trips for nutritionists, having the meetings on line would be preferred. Thanks!

I am currently going through the program at Penn State Surgical Weight Loss in Middletown, Pa. I travel an hour and a half one way to see them monthly. I couldn't recommend them more. The staff is wonderful.

Could you tell me if you are self pay? I contacted them and they told me that it is $50,000 because of the relationship with the university and hospital and that basically it is too expensive if I am self pay. They were my first choice because of where I live.

I'm going through UPMC Pinnacle Health Weight Loss Center in Harrisburg (surgery is at
UPMC Pinnacle Osteopathic) Dr Rosenberger will be doing mine. The clinbic gives you a team environment. I waqs sold on them the first time I called after an appt and the recording said, press one if you are calling from a Drs office OR if you need to talk to your team. Most offices have you 3rd or 4th on the list. Here you are the prioirty. All the employees are awesome, my nutritionist is fab and friendly, and several of their employees have had weight loss surgery. Even the nurse at the hospital bariatric floor had WLS. When I had the EGD done, Dr Rosenberger came into the surgery smiling and singing to me. Gotta love happy people. From others I know, that had one of the other Drs, Dr. Marco, they all really like him too . My surgery isn't until Dec 13 2017, but they all have made me feel confident in my choice. and I'm excited!
