I'm going with Dr Adib through the Weight Loss Solutions Australia on the Gold Coast on the 11th February.
Had all my dietician, psychologist, nursing and surgical appts in one hit yesterday thankfully and even though they are on the Gold Coast, I am having my surgery at The Wesley in Brisbane. Post op for the first year, I get unlimited visits with the dietitian, psychologist, nurse and surgeon as necessary :) that was one of the selling points for me going with them. And because I live in Brisbane, I can do skype, phone, email etc for those appts - what ever is comfortable for me!
I'm so happy you are like the surgeon you saw - that's half the battle really - feeling comfortable with the person who is going to leave you the most vulnerable!
