What happens during surgical weight loss screening?

During surgical weight loss screening at Premier Physicians Weight Loss and Wellness, your provider asks about your medical history, symptoms, and lifestyle habits. They weigh you, assess your body composition and body mass index (BMI), and complete blood tests or other diagnostic tests (if necessary).

The Premier Physicians Weight Loss and Wellness team also completes a psychiatric evaluation to assess your mental health and wellness. Then, they determine if you meet the preoperative criteria set by most insurance companies who cover weight loss surgery.

Your provider reviews the risks and benefits of surgery with you. If you're a candidate for the procedure, they refer you to a bariatric surgeon who completes your weight loss surgery. Your Premier Physicians Weight Loss and Wellness provider will help you prepare for the surgery.

What happens after medical weight loss surgery?

After medical weight loss surgery, your Premier Physicians Weight Loss and Wellness provider follows up with you. They develop a post-surgery nutrition plan and offer advice regarding dietary supplements, nutrient deficiency prevention, meal sizes and timing, and exercise. 

Your weight-loss provider has your best interest at heart. They can meet with you periodically in-person or via telehealth to ensure your weight loss journey goes smoothly.
