I am a patient of Dr. Jawad. He did a lap band on me years ago and it never worked. I can not blame that on him as most lap bands have been found to not work anyway. But after many years I go back and try to get a revision to a sleeve. While Dr. Jawad saw me and the course of action was agreed to I was then turned over to a very very bad back office with little skills. I was told that I was approved by insurance to then be told that I was not approved as they submitted the wrong request, then I was told that I could pay cash but then again told that it will be much more since I was having a revision done. The problem as a whole is that Dr. Jawad as experienced as he is is now an employee of Orlando Regional Center and his office is in Ocala. It seems that this group is at the end of its cycle. Even trying to get a hold of them is hard to do. Odalys Verdejo who does insurance is arrogant and non helpful. There are just too many great groups out there now instead of this place.
I feel Dr Jawad and his staff were excellent. I knew everything that was happening to me. I had a slight complication with my blood pressure and he chose to keep me an extra day and very attentive and concerned. I felt so much more secure having stayed that extra day.
His staff does all the interviewing, we meet the doctor only once for several minutes. We got together all that was needed for insurance approval and sent it to his office for their handling and never heard from them again. We call several times but we seemed to of "fell through the cracks", after we did all the visits to outside doctors, thrypists, lab tests etc.
Dr. Jawad is excellent. A great skilled surgeon. I would highly recommend him and his staff. My lap band surgery was smooth, no complications and I have had great results. I have followed up with his PA, Kevin, whom is also very skilled and personable.
