Follow-Up Appointments


To Ensure Safe and Effective Weight Loss

Professional follow-up is an essential component of our bariatric surgery program. You will see the surgeon and clinic physician for ongoing medical evaluation to ensure that your weight loss experience progresses as planned. The dietitian will offer multiple consultations to assist you throughout this life-changing process. In addition to these required appointments, we strongly encourage you to attend our free support group meetings.
