Betsy Thomas, RD, LD

Registered Dietitian

Betsy has worked in the field of bariatrics since 2007. Betsy is married and an active mom of 3 young children. She also cares for patients with End Stage Renal Disease on dialysis, where majority of the patients are there due to obesity related problems.

It is her goal to see fewer patients in a dialysis unit and more patients living actively and enjoying life because they have a handle on their weight and their health.
