Wishing you and Walter a GREAT 2015 also. You both gave me the tool I needed to get my life back – without the both of you (and your AMAZING team) working on my case I cannot say that I would be where I am today. I APPRECIATE all you did and continue to do for people like me. I continue to spread the word about your advocacy group and all you can help other accomplish if they only make that first call or send that first email like I did. I hope others I have talked to have taken advantage of the help and guidance you can provide. I will sing your praises to anyone who will listen – especially if they have a denial for surgery.
I WAS APPPPPPPPPPROVED!!!!!!!! The IRO overturned the denial!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just got home from work and there was a letter. I’m a big baby right now over this. I’m going to run out of tissues, lol. I will forward you this letter first thing in the morning and will call your office as well! I can not thank you ALL enough. WOW!!!!
This made my life. Literally. I cannot begin to thank you enough for your expert help in having this over turned for me. I know without your help, it wouldnt have been possible. My surgeon has me scheduled for surgery on Feb 6. I will be sure to stay in touch and let you know how it all goes. I have a lot of hope that I will be able to come off of my insulin pump and have better control with just a few injections. I truly believe this is possible for me, and that my quality of life will be so much better. The work you have done is going to change so much for me. I plan, in turn, to make a difference for many others. Its a pretty great ripple effect, isnt it?
Thank you very much for your quick reply and the helpful tips on what should be done. I will proceed as you recommended and contact you again should I need additional assistance. I appreciate knowing that there is someone out there that is willing to fight to help me have a better life. You need to know how much just just the words in your email mean to me. Thanks again and have a wonderful new year!wing that there is someone out there that is willing to fight to help me have a better life.

Thank you so much for your email. I honestly didn’t think that things would change with this appeal but it was worth trying. Thank you for all of your hard work and follow up. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate everything that you have done for me. It is amazing to know that there are people in your corner. All the best to you and your clients.
Dear Walter and Kelley:
Today is the 1-year anniversary of my lap-band surgery. To date, I have lost 67 pounds and I am in the best shape of my life – I don’t remember a time that I weighed as little as I do now, not even in high school. The time you spent appealing my case was invaluable and absolutely life-changing for me, and I just want to let you know how very much I appreciate all the work you put into it on my behalf. I am thankful beyond words!
God bless you!
Thank you for the great news. I will call my surgeon’s office to work out a schedule. I am grateful that they referred me to your office and I will recommend you to anyone who needs assistance. I believe that this result was achieved only through the advocacy of your firm. Thank you very much for all of your effort.
I just wanted to update you and let you know how much we appreciated your help in getting us this approval. My wife had the procedure done in October and has been doing great. Already she has lost weight and her sugar counts are stable and doing fine. The Doctor has taken her off Insulin and High Blood Pressure medicine as a result. She feels real good on the progress she made so far. Once again, thanks for all your help.
Thank you so much Walter and Kelley ! I don’t know either of you, but I love you both so much! You have truly changed my life and I know that a day will not go by where I will not think of you. I am finally looking forward to my wedding day and it’s because of you two. Can’t wait to share wedding pics 🙂 Thank you a million times over.
Thank you so much with your help for our patient [AJ]. You are truly miracle workers. Patient is doing well and excited to start her new journey and is very grateful for your services. Have a wonderful holiday season!
