I researched to find a compassionate bariatric surgeon after issues with Integris Weight Loss Clinic and discovered Journey Clinic in Norman. After meeting Dr Nelson and her wonderful staff, I knew Journey Clinic was the place for me.

I too am having the same issue with Lana Nelson staff;her staff has been putting me on the run around. stating they submitted paperwork to insurance company on my behalf but they hadn't send them anything according to my insurance company.Its 3 months later and I am still going through the same issues. If ur approved she is great but once denied they don't go to bat for you at all. This is my opinion, my feelings, and what I have been dealing with since April when I got my denial letter.

If you are able to go to a different bariatric surgery doctor please do not go to Dr. Nelson. When I began the long 4 month process before surgery I was extremely pleased with the staff and process; however after I completed all of the requirements for surgery (which takes 4 months or longer) I ran into problems with the staff after my insurance denied the procedure. Then I proceeded to not get answers and not get returned phone calls. Now I'm stuck after already spending thousands!!

Dr. Nelson was my surgeon for gastric sleeve surgery in 2014. She was informative from the beginning, addressed any concerns I had from the beginning. Appreciated the program that she has set up for the surgery. I went into her office for my consult, and their office did the rest of the work. Set up every appt. that I would need during my pre surgery. (physical therapy, all of my nutritionis appt's, pysch , support group, etc etc.. My surgery was a success- easy recovery. She gave me my life.
