An Entire Team Focused on You
Specially Trained for Weight Loss Success.
“In other hospitals you do not get the same treatment because the staff is taking care of patients with so many different diagnoses. At Barix the staff is trained to just take care of people with weight problems. They not only took care of me physically, they were there for me emotionally too” – Melanie B.
The Barix Team Approach to Bariatric Care
Unlike other hospitals that began offering bariatric surgery as one of their surgical service lines, because a general surgeon who practiced at the hospital decided to begin performing bariatric surgery, Barix Clinics spent years developing its comprehensive care program and selecting and training the entire team of people needed to provide the best bariatric care possible. The bariatric surgeons at Barix Clinics are specialists who are dedicated to bariatric surgery. The Barix Quality program is based upon having internal medicine physicians who complete required testing on every bariatric patient prior to surgery, to assure that every patient meets Barix’s stringent medical clearance requirements. These internists have developed special diagnostic and post-surgical assessment skills which serve as a major benefit in the care of bariatric patients. In addition to developing the unique surgeon training program, Barix focuses on all the other physicians, nurses, technicians, nutritionists and staff required to deliver a level of service to the bariatric patient that no other healthcare organization has ever come close to providing. This team approach recognizes that every member of the team must not only have superior clinical skills but must be committed to superior outcomes and service excellence.
Barix Cares as if You were Family
At Barix Clinics every patient is cared for as if they were a member of the family. Unfortunately in most hospitals, especially the larger medical centers, patients are treated as if they were just numbers, in a very impersonal, clinically detached manner. Barix Clinics was founded upon the belief that every patient should be treated as more than a VIP, but as if they were a part of the family. In fact, over the last 20 years, patients have attended annual patient reunions so that they can share with Barix staff their success in losing weight and starting a new life. Many Barix staff members are former bariatric patients and they understand your concerns prior to surgery and also the changes that occur after surgery.
For a confidence-inspiring patient experience before, during, and long after bariatric surgery, no one delivers like Barix. And your personal army of dedicated people can't wait to prove it to you. Contact us any time to set up a consultation with one of the bariatric surgeons.
"I had a wonderful experience with Barix Clinics! They were very compassionate, understanding, and they answered all my questions and put my mind at ease. After the surgery they took exceptional care of me and tended to my every need and made sure that I was comfortable and healing well. I felt like the only patient in the hospital!" --Kelly A.
