Resources for Healthcare Professionals Regarding Obesity Counseling

As obesity rates hit sky high rates so do our concerns regarding greater resources and ways healthcare professionals can reach out and aid patients with counseling regarding obesity. The website below is just one of many that offers a great deal of resources for various healthcare professionals


Dr. Shillingford located in Boca Raton Florida has performed hundreds of lap-band surgeries along with post surgical follow up of fills and counseling regarding wellness and obesity.  His bariatric team include: a bariatric nurse specialist, bariatric nutritionist, psychologist, consulting psychiatrist (visit www.drpritikothari.com for more details) along with office management and staff well equipped to handle insurance clearance and scheduling for lap-band surgery and related obesity surgeries.  As we as a team come across further obesity counseling websites we will be happy to share with our blog subscribers and patients.  We offer support groups both at the office and hospital where Dr Shillingford is Bariatric Director - Northwest Hospital in Margate, Florida.  Thank you for reviewing our blog, once again we look forward to seeking and sharing more resources for our lap-band patients.
