Choosing a Surgeon

For those of you who have gone through Bariatric Surgery, or are in the process of meeting requirements for it, how did you decide which doctor to go to? Was it driven by which hospital they have rights at? Insurance coverage? Success rates? Word of mouth?

There are SO many doctors and I can’t quite figure out which doctor to go to. With back surgery I had several opinions and went with the less invasive surgery and a surgeon who was highly recommended.

Please tell me how you made your decision! Also, did you decide which type of WLS you were going to have? Or did the doctor evaluate your medical records and determine which you’d be best suited for?
