CURRENTLY(MARCH 2008) ALL ON THE LIST accept overseas lap band patients, this was validated before adding them on the list.

***

Note from Bandgroupie/Dawnie:

I haven't personally telephoned any doc on this list but may try to run down a few tomorrow. Found this list on the internet with the note that as of March 2008 they were accepting out of country patients. If anyone gets lucky, please post back and let us know who, where, and how much!

I SWEAR the list looks better in here than it does once posted - you can't see my TABLE!!!!

Thanks!

You may also want to add Dr. Vitello in chicago, at good samaritan hospital. He did an awesome job and was very informational.

Thanks Bandgroupie,

I wrote to Barix in Langhorne, Pa. and ask if they'd do fills for me and the cost. I'll post what they say. I'm hoping for a fill center closer to home. I wish I could afford to keep going back to Mexico, I love the OCC!! Darlene

Actually I just called Lori and asked if anyone else had used Dr. Beltre in Altamonte Springs, FL (he is about 2 miles from my house). She did not have him on her list, but added him when I told her that he would work with those banded in Mexico. I scheduled my first fill with him for July 31st. She would like me to report my experience to her so she has something to go on should someone else ask.

Cost... Consult and first fill $500. additional fills $100..office visit $50 so it seems pretty reasonable. and with the price of gas..it is MUCH cheaper than going to the fill center about 2 hours away in Tampa. Altamonte Springs is a suburb of Orlando, FL. I will update the forum on my experience after my fill. So far the office staff seem wonderful.

Hello All. I have another one to add that I did not see on this list for individuals in the NW area. Dr. Neal in Lacey & Shelton, Washington. It is $375 for a fill and he only does fills with xray. He will take anyone and was trained by Dr. O. Hope this helps!!

The fills are generally without fluro, but it can and will be used if needed. (According to his nurse.)

Thanks for the reply Elaine!

I just recieved a call from Barix Clinic in Laghorne Pa. and the nurses exact words were... " Our surgeons will not touch a patient banded in Mexico!" [i did tell them it was done by Dr. Ortiz] Scratch that one off the list....

I called too and go the same answer. Alsthough, their offices in Michigan and Ohio will do them. Not sure why the difference, but that is the case.

Did you happen to tell the Pa. one that the Ohio and Mich. WILL do them? Just wondered what their reaction was... It's been a real pain to try to find a doc close by, not sure what I'll do. Unless airline prices start going down, I can't see myself going back to Mexico any time soon. :( I'm not good at driving in strange cities, maybe the bus or train.

Thanks Mona! :)

Actually, they are ones who told me that Ohio and Michigan will do it.

I just made arrangements for fill 2 in Mexico, and it will be my last. I will start going to Mt. Laurel NJ from now on. Actually, had I known Dr. Romero was no longer at OCC I wouldn't have gone back this time. He promised me he would get me right with the second fill, but if he isn't there, he can't do it can he? Plus, I did say I would take my neice for a trip there so I had to go back once more anyway.

Hey ElaineC, glad to hear your information about Dr. Beltre in Florida. I'm also in Florida and will be banded July 10 by Dr. Ortiz. Like you, I had called the Tampa office and priced their fills. I'm on the East coast of FL, south of Orlando, so Altamonte Springs would be closer for me as well. Where are you located in FL? How was your surgery at OCC? How has post-op diet been going? THat is if you don't mind sharing, I'm so curious since mine is coming soon. And we're both fellow FLoridians! Good luck on your fill and I'll be most interested in your thoughts on him. Feel free to e:mail me at nkswann@yahoo.com.

I tried calling Dr. Beltre's number in FL as given, but it says it is not currently in service. Ugh! Elaine - did you go to him on the 31st for your fill? Please let me know how it went, as I need to schedule mine SOON! Thanks! Nancy

I used a WONDERFUL bariatric surgeon in Birmingham, AL yesterday for my 2nd fill. He only charged me $100 for the fill (no flouro) but he said he would use flouro if necessary. He did not charge me a new patient fee and he and his staff treated me well. I called some offices and the receptionists spoke to me like I was mentally insane for being banded in Mx, but not at Dr. DeWitt's office, they were great.

His name is Dr. Andrew DeWitt. He has a website if anyone is interested. Just google his name.

His entire fee for lapband surgery is only $11,500. That is fairly competitive with Mx pricing.
