Has anyone had gastric sleeve surgery by Dr. Beltre or others in the Orlando, FL area? I would like any feedback as I am researching self-pay doctors in Orlando and he is only one of a few options.

Not too far from Orlando, but I used Dr.Kahlil Schillingford based out of Boca Raton. He was excellent, no pain, easy recovery, super professional and his rates are right on his website, and reasonable. After doing research, he was one of the best in my area, I have also met a few folks after that have used him with the same experience that I had.

If your going to make the self-investment and go the self-pay rout for bariatric surgery I would not let any geographical restrictions get in my way. The surgeon and facility you feel the most comfortable with may be within driving distance. I am going self-pay myself and currently I am favoring a facility that is about a 5-hour drive away. You would be surprised on how many bariatric offices have resources for out of area patients.

I have located a few. My primary reason for wanting a local or nearby doctor is in case I have any post surgical complications. The primary doctor I am thinking about using only offers outpatient VSG with a me returning the following day to have an upper GI X-ray. I would prefer a hospital stay that’s why I’m conflicted about choosing doctors. I appreciate your suggestions as there are others in South Florida that offer overnight hospital stays. I hope your surgery goes well too.

Health First New Fit in Viera/Melbourne FL has decent self pay rates. They have three doctors that are all rated very highly.
