Talking to others who are experiencing what patients are going through can often help. It’s a key aspect of any treatment plan, and why St. Mary Medical Center offers a number of seminars and support groups.
A Zoom support group has been designed for CARE Center clients to connect and socialize during this time of uncertainty. Join us as we discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our daily lives and ways to cope with the unending changes.

We also offer a private one-on-one consultation to hear directly from the bariatric physicians and learn how surgical weight loss can help change your life.
