Dr. Ariel Ortiz and The Obesity Control Center



Recommended Posts

Has ANYONE ever had any work done, or have friends who have had work done, or any frickin first or second hand information about Dr Ariel Ortiz and Obesity Control Center? ? I have posted before and no reply by anyone. Kind of hard to believe.

Am I posting to the wrong blog? Newbie here looking for answers.
Thanks.

I remember back in 2009 when I got my band people on the boards would talk about him all the time. I haven’t seen anything recently. Have you tried doing a search either on this site or with Google?

THANK YOU for your reply. I was starting to think this thing was broken, haha. (Not really)

I have done plenty of google searches but there doesn’t seem to be much that is recent, like even in the last year. Lots of good reviews but mostly from 2016 and prior. So that is why I thought reaching out here might help.

Is there a different forum I should post this question to ya think?
Thanks again.

I think there is a forum for Drs, try there. But also try doing a search on this site. I live in Australia so I really have no idea if he is good bad or ugly!

I had my VSG with Dr. Ortiz on 7/31/18. No complaints whatsoever. I traveled from NJ and my mom came along as my companion. I'd be happy to answer any questions you have. OCC has a secret Facebook group that was extremely helpful and supportive - https://www.facebook.com/groups/OCCSleeveSupportGroup. They keep it private so no one knows you're a member, just in case of judgmental peeps :)

I am having the same problem finding any recent reviews. I did try using their online chat feature on OCCs website and nobody ever answered my chat request.

I was banded by Dr. Ortiz in 2012 and just got a revision (no problems, just not enough aftercare support in the states for the Mexican bandsters) to the sleeve on Thursday (March 7). I’m still sitting in the hotel recovering now and won’t be flying home until Monday night.

If there’s anything in particular I can help with, please let me know.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
