George Washington University Hospital, Washington, DC

Could someone who has gone through the surgery process at this hospital please describe what can be expected from the candidacy and preparation process? The only thread I found about this hospital is an older one, and it doesn’t have the kind of info I’m looking for. I have my consultation scheduled now. I’d like some insight into what this will be like going forward.

I went through the 6-month medically supervised weight loss program at George Washington that was required before my insurance would approve the surgery. (I do recommend their weight loss clinic.)

However, when the time came for my surgery I went with Dr. Katherine Lemond at Sibley Memorial Hospital in DC (affiliated with Johns Hopkins). I cannot recommend Dr. Lemond and the entire bariatric surgery team at Sibley highly enough. I'd recommend that you have a look at them before you make a final decision.
