That is service to the patient to ensure that they have the optimum experience. This experience should include the opportunity to ask all pertinent questions to their weight loss journey. The patient should have a complete understanding and education of their disease process and will receive thorough information on the risks, benefits, options, potential complications and alternatives in a comprehensive treatment plan. This ensures that an individual designed program will be put in place for each patient. Equal emphasis will be placed on timely and regularly scheduled follow ups.
