Late Christmas Present from mySurgeon

7 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I am due to have my sleeve done later this month.  I saw the dietician a couple of weeks ago and when I was leaving I intended to pay for the surgery (a requirement with my surgeon).  I had previously been given a quote from the office staff and when I went to pay I couldn't locate my quote paperwork so the receptionist went to see the surgeon and check with him.  She came back a couple of minutes later and said that the Dr was doing my surgery "Gap Free" because I had a lapband removed by him four years earlier.  I was shocked and so ecstatic.  I told the receptionist it was like a late Christmas present, she said "Merry Christmas".  She also said that because he was doing Gap Free, that the Anaesthetist would also do Gap Free.  That is about a $6500 Christmas present.  I was floating on cloud nine all the way back home.  I still can't believe that he has been so generous.  So my only out of pockets will be my excess for the hospital.

Wow what an awesome pressie! You must have been so stoked!! I had my band removed 2 years ago and my surgeon is giving me $1000 off his fee (which I think is pretty awesome too). It’s nice when they do this for returned clients isn’t it?

I don't know whether to laugh or not!  My Neurologist was found guilty of professional misconduct and fraud.  I never liked him! And his consulting hours were very unsuitable for me.   Needless to say I am seeing someone else instead.

Wow that’s awesome! I had a similar thing happen. With my anaesthetist ai was quoted $1250 and when I had my appointment with him I wanted to pay and asked him how much and he said my out of pocket cost would be $250 I nearly fell off my chair!! So happy to save a few dollars well 1000 to be exact!
