What to Expect When You Refer a Patient

At the St.Vincent Bariatric Center of Excellence, we understand that there’s plenty to consider when it comes to weight loss surgery. But as we’ve said before, we’re here to help—every step of the way.

When you refer a patient to us at the St.Vincent Bariatric Center of Excellence, you can expect that our patient representative will:

  • Contact the patient after receiving your referral
  • Explain the process to the patient and collect your patient’s information
  • If your patient is scheduled for a consult, our office specialist will verify if bariatric surgery is a covered benefit under the patient’s insurance plan.
  • Our patient representative will then send a Follow-Up fax informing you of the scheduling status of your patient
