Information for New Patients
Our office is dedicated to your journey with weight loss. Coming in for an appointment means we have to learn a lot about you, and you need to learn about us. Our staff is dedicated to offering information, guidance, and answering your questions. We also need to learn about you, your habits, and history. The process is beneficial for our staff, and for you, especially in your consideration of weight loss surgery. Please review, download, and print the forms we’ve included on this page. They will be very useful for your next office visit.
Weight Loss Considerations (downloadable document)
We ask all our patients to read this and fill it out at their appointment. It includes some simple considerations about weight loss surgery. By downloading it ahead of time, it will save you time when you come to our office. We expect you to have some questions when it comes to the information in these forms.
New Patient Information Packet(downloadable PDF)
This background information gives us a snapshot of your current health, habits, and contains information the staff and surgeon will need to review with you.
Consent Form (downloadable document)
This is a copy of the consent form we use for patients prior to surgery. It is a comprehensive list of various items that can occur during and after surgery. We do not ask you sign this form until after you have had the pre operative class for the band, but looking the form over before your appointment might generate some questions to ask the physician. We will go over risks and potential complications from surgery.
In spite of years of experience and education, and the precautions our practice takes to minimize the risks of surgery, every operation involves risk. We are tasked with assuring you have a full awareness of things you can do that may prevent complications. We encourage you to ask questions and let our office know of any concerns you may have.
