    Dr. Freedhoff,

    I've been a regular visitor to your blog- and have been waiting and hoping for more updates re: waiting for WLS surgery in Ontario since the change to the system.
    My application went in just before the change (Sept. '09), and I haven't heard anything yet.

  2. Sorry, wish there was something I could tell you to do.

    Ontario's broken system is likely to only get worse as the weight of the application grows.

    Perhaps your next step should be to speak with your member of parliament.
