Gastric Bypass in Memphis



Recommended Posts

Has anyone had gastric bypass with Dr Wagner at St Francis in Memphis Tennessee? I got the approval from the insurance but still waiting on my patient advocate to call me for a date. Just need some advice

I am using them too. My surgery date is the 16 of January. Dr. Weaver left the practice when her contract was over so it is just Dr. Wegner. I have Betty Coble as my patient advocate. I started my journey with a surgery consultation on March 15, 2017.

I have Betty as well. She is really nice. How long did it take her to call you and set a date? I have my approval but no date

My insurance required another meeting in November with the nutrionist and the doctor. I assumed mine would have been in the summer. I got my surgery date at my last appointment on November 1.

I know I have to reach my insurance deductible. I’m nervous though because I was told that you have to pay something before your surgery date is set. My only thing is I hope Betty calls me soon because I want to be fully recovered y my graduation in March

How soon after you got your insurance approval did Betty contact you for a surgery date?

This is going to be horrible for me. I don’t have a pre op date which means mine may be around that time as well. This also means my birthday, Feb 24th, might be spent in the hospital. And then after that, I graduate grad school March 3rd. I really pay I can have everything done before then.

It is normally 2 weeks after preop testing and registration that you would start your 2 week diet. I would email her and call her. She may be out of office again.

I emailed her and she said she would call me. Any idea what the preop testing consists of? I thought I was done with all of that.
