  3. Once your referral is received, our office will contact you to set up a consultation.
  4. Our bariatric team will develop an individualized program care plan for you and verify your insurance requirements.
  5. Upon completion of all program and insurance requirements, our office will submit your medical records to your insurance for surgery authorization.
  6. Once we receive authorization, we can schedule your surgery date.
  7. You will attend a class to prepare you for your surgical procedure and what to expect when you return home.
