Register for a Consultation

Once you have decided that weight loss surgery may be the right option for you, we ask that you schedule a consultation with our office. The consultation provides critical information to help you on your path toward a healthier life. Your consultation is the foundation of your weight loss journey as it will give you an idea of:

  • Whether you qualify for surgery
  • Which procedure may be right for you
  • Steps to get ready
  • The staff that will be helping you throughout the process
  • Resources for your added success

During your consultation you will meet with several members of the team;  your  nurse, your surgeon and your patient coordinator. Together with you, your pathway to surgery is built. The team is here to answer you and your family’s questions. After your consultation, there will be at least two more consults to conduct, one with a medical physician and one with our team psychologist. These consults are meant to assess your ability to safely have surgery, treat any underlying issue that could preclude your ability to safely handle surgery and that you are ready and prepared for the expectations after surgery – bariatric surgery is not a magic bullet and requires dedication to a new lifestyle in order to be successful in the long term. Lastly, we provide intensive education conducted with your dietitian and fitness coach.

We look forward to seeing you at our consultation.
