I had the Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy on April 23rd with Dr Balder. I was a Cash Patient with Dr B, so I did not have to deal with insurance. Jodi and Tawny are great. Super Helpful ( I call them often ;]). They are patient and kind with me and my infernal questions. Dr. B has always been professional and courteous with me at every appointment. I would definitely recommend Dr. B to anyone wishing to have weight loss surgery!
