Judy Knight, our dedicated patient advocate, is a weight loss surgery patient herself. She truly understands what it means to start this weight loss journey and the challenges and joys that lie ahead.
“I was 400 pounds at the time of surgery. After a more than 200-pound weight loss, I am now physically able to do so many things that were not at all possible prior to surgery,” Judy says. “I’m ready to help you by sharing my experience and providing you with all the information you may need about your options.”
These free consultations will familiarize you with all of your surgical options and will answer any questions you may have about the procedures. They also cover insurance benefits, insurer requirements, and an in-depth look at how the program works – from the initial consultation with the surgeon to the necessary pretesting procedures.
