A Few Words About "Weight Checks"

pdfDownload as PDF

You've made that all important decision to undergo weight loss surgery.  That "finally going to take care of myself", "take charge of my health", "live life to the fullest" decision.  You make the move- get in for an initial consultation with a surgeon and then Bam!... "Ma'am/Sir, your insurance company requires X number of months  of a "Supervised Diet"! Say what??  I have been dieting my whole life!  I have followed every diet my doctor, dietitian, dentist, and Dr. Oz put me on.  I have purchased pills, potions, lotions, and special foods.  I have exercised until my ankles and knees gave out. And now, after I've researched and reviewed everything I can about weight loss surgery, I have to wait months to actually have it?!

It's absurd- we agree.  Some would say discriminatory.  But we can and will get through this barrier together.  At William A. Graber, MD, PC, we take weight checks at either location at anytime during open hours (please call or check our website during snow storms).  We always have staff ready for you to drop by.  We can get you in and out with the documentation needed for your "weight checks" to satisfy this insurance requirement- and we can get you 1 month closer to the first day of the rest of your life.  If you have any questions about "weight checks" and other insurance requirements, please reach out to us.

In good health,
The Office of William A. Graber, MD, PC - Weight Loss Surgery
