The Bariatric orientation is the first step towards Bariatric surgery. Our orientation offers a significant amount of education about the Bariatric pathway to surgery along with knowledge of the surgical options we offer at WAMC.

Bring this packet with you to orientation. After orientation, you will have your labs drawn and you will be scheduled for an intake appointment with one of our providers!
Thank you and we look forward to working with you along your Bariatric journey.
