I’ve known Serena for about 15 years now, and I was so excited to have her on the podcast to talk all about specializing in bariatric evaluations. When I caught up with Serena several months ago and learned that she was doing them in private practice, I knew she’d have a highly precise, research-informed system for doing these evals. Today, she shares that system with all of you so that you can dial in your bariatric evaluations and add them to your practice with confidence! Here are a few things we talk about:
- Serena’s exact process for doing a bariatric eval from start to finish
- Where she gets referrals for bariatric evaluations
- The measures she uses during these evaluations
- An alternative way to take insurance but get paid more than the usual contracted rate
