    Beautifulbell - My insurance has an exclusion for WLS so I am self pay. This equates to about $5,000 less if I go to MX. Were you by chance self pay in Ypsi?

    Hi HECKLERS....me too, soon....with Dr. Foote! I am in Eagle and looking towards an end of October/first of November surgery date. I have Medicare but they are choosing surgeries on a case-by-case basis so when they deny my supplemental insurance takes over. I am in the last month of a 6 month "diet" with my PCP to follow their guidelines. What did you think of GHP and Dr. Foote? I have liked everyone I met there, so far, and I had a great visit with him. What's your experience?
    Reason: Add poster responding to.

    Hi all! I am in Ypsi and Dr. Poplowski was my dr. I can't say enough good things about him! Haven't been to any support groups but I think there is one.
