I've gone with Dr Sue Taylor at Western Surgical, who also have Prof Hahndorf and Dr Tan. I have had 2 friends use Prof and love him, I am loving Dr Taylor and the team are amazing. 

I think Dr Taylor is on the HBF preferred list as well for HBF ( I can't comment I am self funded)

Hi and welcome Tayla94,

I went to Stephen Watson, and believe that he is a nice person and a good surgeon, but forget it as far as support and follow-up.
Also, nursing care and general communication at SJOGM is very poor.  And scary.

My "sleeve-sister" who I met through this forum @juldon1 is very happy with Leon Cohen, and I have to say has a wonderful team, great pre-and post-op support.

I'm not with HBF, so can't comment.
I have top level medibank and had a $3050 gap with Dr Watson, and $1500 with his anaesthetist.  You will also cop gap fees for blood tests taken in hospital and for pathology.

Hope this helps,

Hi all,
I'm new to this forum and considering the Gastric Sleeve. I have been reading the forums on a few surgeons and just wondering if anyone has had success lately (2013-2015) with these surgeons in particular; Dr Leon Cohen, Dr Jon Armstrong and Dr Stephen Watson. Also if anyone has had any trouble with HBF insurance and any of these Dr's.
