Bariatric Doctor Appointments
Bariatric doctor appointments are meant to give you clearance for surgery. Your medical team wants the best for you, including making sure your body is prepared for surgery. Bariatric surgery is major surgery, so the doctors want to make sure your body and mind are ready for the stress. Some of the doctors you may see once and not need to follow-up. Others you may need additional testing and follow-up appointments. No matter what happens, you can find support and encouragement here at Stop Weighting, Start Doing.
