  2. Hi, Have never posted on here... I was banded by Dr. Ortiz in December (he did a great job)... I should note that I am a prior gastric bypass patient as well... Anyhow, going to TJ was tough at this time so I called Dr. Spiegel in Houston... He charged me $200 for consultation and then $150 for the fill using fluro.. He told me that Dr. Ortiz was an excellent surgeon and did a real good job with my band, especially since I was lap band over bypass which is a difficult operation. I think for $350 it was a good deal and have an MD here take me in. SO I wanted to share... I hope everyone else is successful with their lapband journey to longer health.. Chris
