No but.welcome to Bariatric Pal. I haven't seen anyone from Virginia, but we more than a few from Maryland, someone from Delaware, and also from Washington DC. I'm sure the other Virginia people will find you soon. I'm in Central Ohio myself,& having my surgery in Columbus.😛Good Luck!

I am from Virginia too, and I'm new to the forum as well. Had first consultation yesterday. A little nervous.

I know the area very well. My husband grew up in Newport News. We had friends in Gloucester. So when is your surgery?

Still have some hoops to jump through...as soon as I get psych and nutrition visits done We can schedule it. Since I am self-pay will probably be in 6-8 weeks...maybe less

Cova Care Virginia here!! I started my 12 month process back on 1/4/2018. I am working with St. Mary's surgery team in Richmond VA. So far all of the requirements have been a BREEZE. Considering that some other people's requirements have so many more tests involved I am super excited to be on the back half of approval. I just did my psych eval last week and got a glowing letter of reccommendation.
