Post-op Follow Up Schedules

This is our standard follow up schedule and perhaps additional appointments will be needed according to your individual requirements, tolerance and progress. Follow up is a compulsory part of our program intended to enhance your optimal potential to achieve and sustain a new and healthy lifestyle. If you are unable to make a scheduled follow-up appointment, call as soon as possible to cancel the visit, so that another patient can be accommodated. Please note, additional labs may be required as indicated by your health status
