New Start or DePaul Weight Loss Institute
as a result of my heart acting up during the colonoscopy on friday my primary care physician wants me to see if there is any way that i could be accepted for weight loss surgery at DePaul. this is actually where i originally wanted to go for the surgery however i didn't meet their required 5 year doctors reported weight history. the doctor feels that DePaul would be better should there be any cardiac issues during the procedure. after explaining everything to the person on the phone at DePaul and letting them know that i have received insurance approval they are sending out the necessary paperwork to submit for consideration. i will also need to have a letter of clearance from my cardiologist, Dr. Nanda before being accepted - i have an appointment with him on march 25th.
