Recently, I needed to find a pediatric dentist specialist for one of my children.
My wife and I didn’t know of any dentists, nor did our friends or family. A dentist we know gave us a handful of business cards and said, “These guys are all good. Just call one of them.”
Hmmm. That was not quite the recommendation we were seeking.
So we painstakingly devised our own criteria for finding the right dentist and proceeded to weed them out until we found the right care provider for us.
Tips & Tools to find an NJ Bariatric Program
Our exhaustive search for the right dentist made me think about our practice ─ once people have been recommended for weight loss surgery here in central New Jersey (or simply want to learn more about it), how do they find the right doctor for them?
To help you save time, we created a page specifically to help those who are just beginning their search for a bariatric program:
This page outlines tips and tools for finding the best obesity doctor and medical practice. In addition to qualified bariatric surgeons, you’ll want to make sure the practice you choose includes a bariatric nutritionist, a medical insurance expert who specializes in weight loss surgery pre-certification and weight loss surgery insurance coverage, and a helpful medical support staff to make your weight loss goal a success.
Armed with these tools, the next step is to call the office or attend a new patient information session where you can meet the bariatric surgeon and ask any remaining questions in a friendly and informal setting.
Deciding to have bariatric surgery is a big decision, and knowledge is power. I hope these tools will help you in your search.
