Here at Obesity Free we are completely aware of this and we want to make your journey as smooth as possible so this is why we invite you to contact us anytime and Dr. Rosales will personally address all your questions and concerns.
Once we receive your contact information, we will get back to you as soon as possible, and if you don’t have any inconvenience we would rather prefer to do it via phone call. First of all, we will determine if you are an actual candidate for weight loss surgery; will answer all your questions and concerns regarding our services and the procedure of your interest.
Since there are several bariatric procedures we will let you know our professional opinion on which one best fits your needs and goals. We mainly offer the Gastric Sleeve or the Gastric Band but of course we can also inform and illustrate you on any other weight loss procedure you are considering as an option. This call also allows us to give you a specific and fixed price for your all inclusive package.
Once we have cleared all your questions, we will send you a health history format in order for you to fill out and send it back to us for our thorough review, this helps us to get to know your complete medical background and therefore will determine if you would be in the need of having extra preoperative tests besides the routine ones which include, lab tests, x-ray tests, evaluation by internal medicine, cardiologist, pulmonologist, etc.
We can also help you get in touch with a nutrition specialist and former weight loss surgery patient to help with the pre and post operative nutritional care that will ensure success after your surgery!
We will provide you with the different payment and financing options in order for you to start planning on a desired date for surgery!
Date for your surgery
Once everything is ready for your surgery, it will be scheduled according to your request and our schedule availability. It is important to consider that most of the patients are in the need of undergoing a preoperative diet whose duration will depend directly on your BMI, this will be planned accordingly to the date for surgery.
