Please repost wherever you post: I would like to initiate a place to collect reports of known BAIT-AND-DON'T-SWITCH surgeons. This includes: Surgeons who advertise they do the DS, but then refuse to do them (there are rumors has it that Dr. Kim in Dallas has publicly stated that "due to liability" he is no longer doing the DS, yet there is more than one person on OH claiming that they are seeking a DS with him) Surgeons who try to steer patients away from the DS, and only grudgingly will do one Surgeons who steer patients to some variant thereof, like the SADI, especially if they are doing it on self-pays, or if they are billing insurance for something that was not authorized. In particular, I'd like to keep track of surgeons like Cooper and Ponce de Leon who apparently give patients a SADI or some other "variant" DS without fully informed consent, i.e., when the patient THINKS they are getting a proper DS and only find out later that they did not (patients have reported that they had NO idea they were getting the SADI, or were told it was just like a DS, only "safer"). I also hope that anyone who sees a pre-op patient who is going to a surgeon that does this will WARN them of these reports of their chosen surgeon's practices, so they can do their due diligence even more carefully. TO BE CLEAR: these reports are like Yelp reviews - they are only as reliable as the person reporting them, and are for the purpose of raising awareness and advising pre-ops to be particularly careful, not only with the named surgeons, but also ANY surgeon - GET WHAT YOU ARE AUTHORIZING THEM TO DO - OR NOT DO - IN WRITING!!
