How far out was your patient consultation scheduled? I called today and was given a date of June 12, 2014? Is this normal? I know he is a very busy person because his services are in high demand, but... 15 months? Please share your timeline. Thanks!

I did webinar on a Thursday and had consultation and scheduled a surgery date on Monday. But i Will tell u that the surgery dates are going year to year. For example it is June 2013 so the next sx date available is June 2014.

I called on a Monday and I did the webinar that Wednesday. I went from the original call to scheduling a surgery date and everything in between in 7 days.

Does he use Skype or OVOO? I have a phone consult scheduled with him, however I would prefer a virtual consult.

I called a few weeks ago and my consultation is august of 2014 but was informed I could get an actually surgery date if I go the expedited route which I plan because I was told how it usually works is you have your consultation and then sx is scheduled a year after that....I was like ooohhh no I can't wait that long

I was told about that route too. But my mind changes too much for me to send all that money to them and not be really sure. That's just me. I booked with Salama and now im looking at cortes. SMH!!

In my case i always wanted to have my surgery this year. Dr. J gave me aug 2014 for a consultation only, so who knows when the surgery date would have been. That is why i decide to research other PS. i'm missing this summer and i really want to be ready for next. So DR. J is out of my PS book.

After consultation surgery is scheduled a year after that so I was told by his staff unless you go the expedited route which im doing because my consultation too is in august 2014

yes, i spoke with sarah thru email and she told me that was an option i have. But i dont want to do that, i change my mind too much and there is no refund.

This is truly sad. The bad part is he will probably go up on price as the demand is so high and he has some serious competition literally at his doorstep . ..... Glad I changed my mind. There's too many non/refundable fees that aren't being disclosed upfront .

My advice to you all, dont rush yourselves. Thats when youll be taken financial advantage of when you appear desparate for change. You may even pic someone that you will regret for rushing your change to come. My SX is in Nov 15, they didnt ask me for no 2000.0 deposit bc im not rushing. I may even hold my money until the last minute just incase I change my mind.

This is the best advice yet.

I never could get my phone consult. I waited 3 months for a face to face. When I got there Valerie a patient coordinator assessed me. Valerie was very kind attentive and professional but I had to let her know I flew all the way from Florida on nastey ass Spirit airlines. I must see him TODAY! She went and fetched him for me.

I left him alone, once they gave me a appt for Aug 2014.

My appt is June 2014 and I called a couple months ago, this is very frustrating.

I finally got an earlier sx date. Jan 2014, but I no longer want it. Too bad they are no longer allowing people to sell their dates.... $500 non refundable deposit is what I paid.

That's crazy, it's a shame you can't take it or sell it. I'm looking to have my surgery the end of march bc ill be out of school for spring break. That June consultation is just not gonna work. I'm gonna keep trying. Did you decide to go with another Dr?

They are money hungry

Yes. I chose another doctor afterall.

This is crazy, I get an email today from someone name Jarell stating that they would have to cancel my consultation for today because they did not have my photos. I'm like really, my appointment was for Monday, you confirmed it and stated you had my photos, where did today come from? And I cancelled Monday..... If anyone has appts with Dr. J, I would confirm it 2 or 3 x.......

Im scheduled to see Dr.Jimerson for that face to face in 4 more days WOOOHOO! But it was hard to get scheduled with all the people in his office (bty who treated me very special) flipping me from one person to the next. I finally got my consult date. Just be persistant.
