We were reluctant to contact Dr. Norman for the same reason. Gastric bypass. After submitting all her labs going back to 2007, we received a phone call from Dr. Politz that ended in us booking a surgery date. We thought if he wouldn't take her as a patient, then we're out the consult fee. My wife asked him how do you know I have an adenoma? There is no other explanation for it, was his response. we took a leap of faith, and are so very glad we did. her problem never would have been addressed locally.
So I would definitely advise you to at least get the consilt from the Norman Center.
