Do I Need a Passport? 

Our patients often ask if a passport is required. The answer is yes. Customs and border agencies going into Mexico and returning to the U.S. both require a passport or passport card for travel across the border. A passport card can be easier and faster to get, as it’s valid for land crossing only. A passport book can take a bit longer, but it’s good for land, air, and sea crossing. Crossing is very easy with the proper documents, so if you don’t already have a passport or passport card, start that process now. You can go here if you need to get your passport quickly, and you can also try getting an appointment at your local passport office here.  

Forms and requirements to apply for your US Passport or Passport card can be found here.
 
Passport lead times can be 6-8 weeks or more. For urgent travel, you may be able to get an appointment at your local passport office for a passport card if you need to travel within two weeks and you may be able to get your passport card on the same day. However, appointments are very limited, so call ahead to see if you can get an appointment. In certain instances, you can pay an extra fee for an expedited passport.  
 
If you don’t have a passport and are unable to obtain one in time for surgery, please contact an OCC Patient Coordinator for assistance.
 
Costs to get your U.S. passport or passport card can be found here (prices are different for renewal and for minors).

Our Financing Process

We provide our patients with several options to finance their weight loss and other surgeries through third parties. These financing companies offer you an affordable way to have your procedure done immediately with monthly payments that fit your budget. Please feel free to contact us regarding the options that are summarized below. You may call us toll-free from the U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, or Canada. From outside the U.S., please call 1-415-738-8100.

Please note: OCC quotes cash prices, In addition to any fee that the finance company charges you directly, check with the lender to see if there is a funding fee charged to OCC, if so, the cash price to OCC would not apply, and you would be charged a higher fee, typically around 5%.

If you choose financing that pays you directly, and no extra costs are incurred by OCC, we may be able to honor the cash pricing. All patients are required to pay a $500 deposit to OCC to hold their surgery date within 24 hours of scheduling.

Sorry, at the moment we do not accept the No Patient Left Behind Financing Program.

OCC’s epidemiologist is closely monitoring the COVID-19 status and is actively issuing updates as they are available. The Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization are the most trusted sources online.  While the CDC has announced new mask protocols for vaccinated individuals, there will be no changes for our office protocols for patients, guests, and staff members as the announcement does not apply to hospitals or medical facilities. Masks are still a requirement for all patients, guests and staff at our facility.

As we reinitiate weight loss surgery, we are constantly adapting and installing new and updated safety measures.

Weight loss surgery is medically necessary.

Bariatric Surgery and the clash of two pandemics.   

Major metabolic and bariatric surgery Societies and colleges globally are now calling for the safe resumption of bariatric and metabolic surgery before the COVID-19 pandemic is declared over. 

The sooner bariatric surgery can be safely performed, the quicker obesity, type 2 diabetes, and other diseases can be reduced or resolved as they are not only chronic they are also progressive.  Obesity is also linked to more than 40 diseases including type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, and at least 13 different types of cancer.

A recent statement from the ASMBS says “Before COVID-19 began, it was clear that patients with obesity were ‘safer through surgery.’ In the era of COVID-19, ‘safer through surgery’ for patients with obesity may prove to be even more important than before.” Obesity and Metabolic syndrome have been identified as an independent risk factor for adverse outcomes including death among COVID-19 patients.
