I went to this place for a weight loss surgery seminar. I almost became a victim of this scam. The waiting room was packed with people. There was no privacy. I could hear the phone conversation at reception desk and I could tell there was a former patient on the phone who probably wanted to see the doctor after her surgery but the receptionist said the doctor in not available but you can see the medical assistant.
It turned out that the guy who conducted the seminar was not even a doctor. He kept on saying "we do this and we do that" and I could not figure out who is "we". So finally after numerous questions it turned out that the doctors will not get to see you until the day of surgery.
If you are looking for a weight loss surgery, lap band or other procedures, you need to watch out for this group. They operate with no legitimate surgery center license. They perform un-necessary surgery. They will remove your gallbladder for no reason but only to get paid for it by your PPO insurance. Then they will schedule you for another surgery to place the gastric band. They have been investigated and written by Los Angeles Times newspaper. Just search for "Lap Band, Los Angeles Times" and you will see 3 investigating articles. The doctors working at this place: two have lost their medical licenses and one have been kicked out of several hospitals. There also has been numerous complications and several deaths at this place. Watch out and do your homework before going there.
