Bariatric Peer Support Group
Whether you are considering, are pre-op, newly post-op or your surgery was years ago, there is a place for you in our group.
Join us for our Bariatric Peer Support Group. This peer support group is facilitated by past bariatric patients and is open to patients who have undergone bariatric surgery as well as people who are considering surgery.
In this peer support group, there are no doctors, therapists or nurses present. It’s just us patients supporting each other on this amazing and sometimes scary journey called bariatric or weight loss surgery (WLS). As you know, WLS is not for everyone and it is certainly not the “easy way out” from obesity. Even after the weight is gone, long-term support is critical to your success, therefore, we are always here for you. If you have regained any of your weight, please come to group! Pre-ops need to learn from you too. You will not be judged and you are certainly not alone.
Each meeting will have some bariatric friendly snacks (low carb & sugar-free) and a raffle to win bariatric related items. Come support others in their journey, make new friends and learn techniques on how to be successful in your weight loss.
Free to patients of Dr. Hanna, Dr. Grove and Dr. Fierer.
Non-patients: First two groups are free, $5 per group thereafter.
Registration is not required, just show up!
