Since I've been off work for a few I figured now is the time to make an appt with new Dr since my insurance changed and can't go to the Dr i started with. At about 9:15 am I left a message for the bariatric person. I haven't received a call back. Not sure if I should try again tomorrow or give them more time before I call again. Thoughts?

My doctor’s office in NJ usually doesn’t return my calls the same day. I’ve just learned that’s how they role. I would call again tomorrow.

Vadim Gritsus. He’s in Pequonnock and Paramus. I live in NY but used him for my (failed) gastric sleeve when I lived in NJ and I really like him.

It's not that. I wanted him but work recently changed insurance and he's not in my plan anymore

So I left a message just after 9 am yesterday and no call today and it's after 5 pm so I can't even call them. Guess I'll be leaving another message tomorrow

That’s a little worrying. I wouldn’t give them more than 2 chances to return the call.

Amen to that! There many many physician- fish in the waters of New Jersey. Don't settle for bottom feeders or being treated like pond scum. You deserve the best, and than does not include being ignored.

Met with Dr. I need to do an initial nutrition appt then 3 more before surgery. I need to do sleep test and Doppler of my legs. Then the psychiatrist. I need to make sure sleep study is covered. I don't want to get hit with a bill. Same with Doppler

Hi. Im new here and i have my first appointment with Dr. Vadim. For next week...i heard he is calm. Sincere. Explaines everything real good n also listens patiently all concerns really good. A friend of mine used him as her surgeon 3 months ago and she highly recomends him

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?

      Slowly going back to old habits, which is not good. How have others stayed the course and kept losing to achieve goal weight?
