*Consumer Comment: Re: Weight Loss Center - Lapband and 1800-get slim
I arrived at their office for a Saturday seminar and was immediately treated badly. It was unorganized, crowded and unprofessional. Then I finally met Dr. Salamatari. That's when #*#* really hit the fan.
One prospective patient asked how many LapBand Surgeries he had done and he kept trying to say "we". Finally when I asked him how many he alone had done he finally came clean that he had done less than 20. I asked when he had finished training and he responded last July.
Then came the cattle call. I was escorted to am exam room. I was forced to go thru a series of consultations. None of which I had asked about or wanted. I didn't want to be seen by a podiatrist for bunions or a plastic surgeon for breast reduction surgery or by a gynecologist for urinary accidents.
I left having thought that I would not hear from them again.
A couple of weeks later, I get a phone call telling me that Insurance does not cover the LapBand Surgery but that if I pay them $18,000,000. cash they can do the surgery for me.
What they didn't tell me is that Insurance wouldn't pay them because of their center not being in network because they are not accredited!
Later I find out that their the same Doctors that have had their medical license's revoked and placed on Probation.
***1-800-GET-SLIM ***Weight Loss Centers*** TopSurgeons*** are all owned 100% by Dr. Michael Omidi (Medical License on Probation http://www.tmz.com/2008/10/06/90210-doc-disciplined-over-lipo/) and Julian Omidi ( Medical License Revoked)
Their surgeries are done in unsafe operating rooms with unsafe physicians. They have no regard for patient safety and worse they are dishonest. They are still trying to get me to pay them when I have been authorized for surgery at Cedars!
Don't trust your life in their hands.
Beverly Hills, California
