Dr. Dahiya describes what a new patient can expect during her first visit with a bariatric surgeon.
At your first visit, we meet. I am going to give you all the information, what are the different options, do you fit LAP-BAND®; are you the kind of patient who should have a bypass; are you the kind of person who should have a sleeve; which one is going to fit you; what are your needs; what, as far as complications, possibilities, good ones or not so good ones. This is your fact-finding mission. This is also your get to know the office people. This is also to get to know, “Is this the kind of a place that I would do business with?” Be it the LAP-BAND®, be it any other procedure, any one of them, discuss them in detail.
Your answers fully will be answered. You should go knowledgeable that you can make a informed decision as opposed to kind of just throw darts somewhere at where it lands.
