Hello Walter and Kelley,
I wanted to send a huge THANK YOU to you both, as well as to your team! Everything happened very quickly after my appeal hearing on June 26th, and I had my bypass surgery on July 10th !! And I went back to work on Monday July 15th, so its all been a whirlwind! I am feeling great, the weight is coming off, and I am starting to really feel like I am getting back to normal (well my new normal that is).
This would not have happened without your help, and I am forever grateful for all the work you all did to help me. I will certainly recommend you all to anyone going through the same struggle as I did. You all are just wonderful and made the process very easy. I just want you all to know how much I appreciate all your …
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 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.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time out of your day to update me as well as fighting for me to get this operation. I can’t express enough the joy that it brings me to have such wonderful people at my back when I most need them. I know that this is not final but I still thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Thank you so very much for this wonderful letter of request. I honestly regret not contacting you when I was initially denied. I am just flabbergasted at the detail and the evidence based references provided. WOW!!! I deeply regret not knowing you existed. You really take the WORD advocacy to a whole new MEANING. Words cannot describe how satisfied I am to see such documentation and how thankful I am for your help. Thank you!
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!
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!!!!
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.
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!
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.
