As a Registered Dietitian I am a consultant for Gastric Bypass patients who are considering Gastric Bypass, the Sleeve or the Lap Band Procedure
I feel obligated to my Bariatric patients that I relay the philosophy: Take care of your body, that very precious body and treat it with the utmost respect by providing yourself with a healthy lifestyle. This is especially true after you have made one of the most important decisions in your life: To have weight loss surgery. I want to make sure for each and every one of my patients that I help them implement that philosophy.
Connecting with my patients is key. This is what happens during our initial consultation to find out what your dreams and concerns about your weight loss are and how I can guide you to align those desires and minimize your concerns for a successful weight loss surgery.
Depending on the procedure, you are going to have a personalized plan will be designed just for you. This will provide the best opportunity for you to move through the phases of pre-op and post-op menu planning.
My aim is to have all results lead to a successful weight loss for my patients' post-surgery. I also offer guidance on how to maintain your weight loss, along with increasing your health for the rest of your life. Guidance is always available post surgery when you need it.
"I have read in chat rooms that if a patient is not compliant with pre and post surgery there may be complications or not experiencing the weight loss you expected. Susan helped and guided me through the surgery so I was able to loose the weight I wanted. Thank you Susan for helping me change my life.. "
