After submitting your new patient application, your application will be processed by our insurance staff. You will receive a personalized benefits summary and detailed letter regarding your insurance coverage. While our staff processes your application, we invite you to complete your informational seminar during this time. We ask that all patients complete this required step prior to scheduling their initial pre-surgery evaluations.
Our New Patient Coordinator will contact you to schedule your pre-surgical evaluations once your application has been processed. Your appointments will be scheduled according to your availability and will include the following visits:
- Nutrition counseling
- Psychological evaluation
- Exercise Assessment
- Lab work
- Sleep study
- Resting Energy Expenditure
- Body Composition
- Additional visits or evaluations may be necessary depending on medical history and insurance requirements
All evaluations and testing will be scheduled and competed in one clinic visit, with the exception of the psychological evaluation, as this visit is scheduled with a provider outside of our clinic.
After our team of specialized providers has provided you with the tools for a successful weight loss future, you will be scheduled for a surgical evaluation with Dr. Emma Patterson.
