Bridge Program

Our Bridge program is designed to educate patients who are contemplating weight loss surgery.

Most insurance companies require a 3-6 month medically supervised weight loss program prior to requesting surgery. This is where our specially designed Bridge program fits in. Patients now have the option of choosing our Bridge program over other weight loss programs that are very expensive and DO NOT prepare you for the necessary diet changes required after surgery. The Bridge program consists of monthly visits with our Dietitian. You will receive a full-color educational book, along with testing modules that ensure our patients are well prepared for their specific surgery.

This service is available for a small program fee of only $35.00 a month.
