SOOOO, I did all the typical moves trying to reach Duran, consistently emailing her directly in Spanish and English but then i decided to just pay the deposits for one of the Coordinating Services. Now some might think it silly to pay the $200 but I say, to each, HER own ( see what i did there!) I am a busy woman with three children, a career, 2 cats, a hobby so it was feasible for me to secure with Duran this way. I scouted the Services,
website at www.draduran.com/surgicoordinator.html
Contact Laura or Stephanie ( Stephanie speaks better English)
Fill out health question form send 4 pictures hitting all sides and wait for a quote.
This service is free-YOU ONLY PAY $200 if you accept the quote
Jazmine has been around for a LONG TIME! trusting, from what I have read.
Fill out a medical form and submit all the sides on film via email, pay the fee upfront and you'll secure a date!

Per the way my personality is set up, i though it more economical to get a price prior to paying the fee. I have many "what if" vices, what if the price is too dam high and i don't want to? what if i don't like the customer service presentation, what if this and what if that...i figured I've heard some neutral reviews, more so leaning on the positive side and so great reviews about SurgiCoor so I decided to roll with them. I also heard that Laura works with Duran and this is her moonlighting gig.
The first email Laura sent to me told me to lose 30 pounds and i was like WTF COMMEOOOOON, I mean, i'm a little chubby but NOT 30 lbs chubby for sx big. She hurt my feelings and had a sista vexed so i mumbled upset by her by myself, binge watching Netflix and eating a pack of Oreo's......after collecting my thoughts and wiping the crumbs off the top of my shirt, I emailed Laura and told her I am NOT interested in being a skinny woman. I desire to be a woman with meat and curves in the right places. I told her i want to be on the table at 165-160 at most and doesn't the good Dr need some fat to work with? 30 pounds would put me at 140 on the table not to mention the weight I will loss afterwards!!!! I AM not interested in being that small. I've been there, done that and that small, I looked like I was starving.
Laura sent me an email back 2 days later with a quote:

SurgiCoordinator - I paid the $200 deposit and it took about a week to get a secured date of June 14th 2016. The service is just ok, I gather it depends on the person. I am an intricate person, therefore I need detail. I love detail and Surgicoor, although delivering; the information is vague for the type of service they are in. I have received 2 other emails about Recovery Houses and What type of meds I should take prior to surgery. The emails were lacking detail and I had to call to get clarification a couple of times. I was told to take Iron and VIT C and folic Acid without any dosing instructions???? What happens if I take too much or too little, this information should be delivered from SurgiCoor via Duran. I called WhatsApp and emailed and was responded to 10 days later after I had to “spice up” my words slightly. There was a letter posted from BellaVITA via Duran and it was BEAUTIFUL, telling the patient what to expect pre and post and had everything in it down to comfort tips and things to bring. I was JELLY!!! I sent the letter to Surgicoor and asked them why don’t I have such a beautifully detailed letter from Duran. We have the same Dr? I was told that info comes when the sx date gets closer???? I told Laura, that Surgery is NO small thing and most people are alone and scared stepping out ESPECIALLY since we don’t meet the Dr. until we get there. A guide explaining the procedure your having and what to expect will comfort someone who can’t meet the Dr.
Post Op Meds- I have asked which meds do I need so I can get a scrip from my Dr. and bring them with me. I have good insurance and I don’t need to spend $150 there in cash when I can get them here per my PCP herself whom is Columbian and who had sx in Columbia herself. Laura tried to advise me to get them there per I don’t know what I will need and I might need different things. I told her the list seems fairly similar from the 100’s of Dolls whom has received sx and if I need something else I will get it the isolated item there. Also the garments. Compression Socks and Faja- I have asked Laura many times to give me the name of the garments and was told that I should purchase the garments there because I will not know my size after sx and that they get them from Columbia. I told her PERFECT, my PCP is from Columbia and has family there and is willing to help me as she is with my Scrips, send me the info. 10 days later……I am here because my deposit is NON refundable ? ? I would have ran, albeit, my date is set and I’m intelligent and pushy enough to get what I want and need. I am not saying they aren’t nice people, they are, Laura has been pleasant upon reach, however this isn’t the service for me. There is a cavalier, yet friendly demeanor displayed and I don’t think they have the professional skill set to execute professionally and informatively. I would NOT recommend them.
