This is an exciting time to be part of medicine, and Blossom Bariatrics is also on the cutting edge of innovation. The practice was one of the first to recognize that Las Vegas is becoming a medical destination and became part of that trend. Now Blossom Bariatrics is offering improved programs for its continuing commitment to patient care before, during and after any procedure performed. The doctor and staff understand that there is more to the practice than surgery.
What are some of the upgraded programs Blossom Bariatrics is offering?
We are now offering our own pharmacy at Blossom Bariatrics so patients can get their medications here. Patients come to class, get their medication and are ready for their surgery for convenience and as part of the total practice.
There is Blossom Buddies, with a support group held at the office and also available online for our out-of-town clients. All patients are welcomed to participate, whether they already have had surgery or are looking into having a procedure done. We offer support, coaching and encouragement during this process. In fact, one of our certified therapists is a bariatric patient herself. The best part: The program is free.
