Bariatric (weight loss) surgery is a valuable and effective tool, but it is not right for everyone. Each candidate must meet certain requirements to be considered for surgery.
Is Bariatric Surgery Right for You?
The following steps will help you determine if bariatric surgery is right for you:
1. View the Webinar or Attend a Seminar
2. Schedule a Consultation
You can schedule a consultation (first appointment) with the surgeon once you complete the webinar or seminar.
3. Get Clearance from Your Primary Care Physician
Have your primary care doctor complete this form or send a letter stating that you would be a good candidate for surgical weight loss.
4. Schedule your Nutrition Evaluation
All patients must receive a nutrition evaluation. Schedule your evaluation by calling (937) 208-5300. (Please note that Medicare will only cover this assessment if you have a co-morbid diagnosis of Diabetes.)
5. Schedule your Psychological Evaluation
Make an appointment for a psychological evaluation. We are happy to supply a list of psychologists.
