When you arrive for your first appointment, you will meet with the nurse to go over any insurance requirements and what to expect throughout the whole process. The doctor will then meet you to discuss the surgery options, along with the benefits and risks of each procedure. The goal of this consultation is for you to discuss which procedure is best for you. Before you leave, you’ll meet with the nurse again to discuss the cost of surgery and the bariatric program.
