Commenting on the recent article, the bariatric surgery center notes that they have long known the importance of a close doctor-patient connection, but it is important to see it recognized with tangible data.

Dr. Feiz notes that a close connection between doctor and patient is important in all aspects of medicine.

Dr. Feiz notes that it is vital that patients make sure that whichever doctor they choose does everything they can to engage the patient and promote positive results in every way possible.

According to an article published August 21st on WebMD, new research suggests that the helpfulness of a doctor is tied directly to the success of a patient who is attempting to lose weight. Specifically, the trial followed nearly 350 obese patients over a two year period, measured their weight loss over that period, and compared those results with how helpful each patient felt their physicians were when they responded to a survey. While these patients were attempting to lose weight through conventional methods rather than weight loss surgery, bariatric surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz notes that the lessons from the study can be applied to doctor helpfulness in general. With so many options out there, each claiming to offer patients the best results with bariatric surgery, Dr. Feiz notes that it is vital that patients make sure that whichever doctor they choose does everything they can to engage the patient and promote positive results in every way possible. These potential methods outlined by Dr. Feiz include:

  • The Right Preparations – One of the best ways for a patient to succeed during their weight loss surgery is to make sure that they have worked with their doctor to do all of the necessary preparations beforehand. An important part of this, notes Dr. Feiz, is choosing the right type of weight loss surgery before moving forward. Although certain procedures, such as the sleeve gastrectomy, have been shown to be the best option for the greatest number of patients, no two patients are the same, so different people may require a different surgical approach.
  • Nutritional Support – For all of his patients, no matter what procedure they elect, Dr. Feiz says that he and his team do everything they can to work with patients and make sure that they are getting all of the nutrients their body needs while they are losing their excess weight. Patients know that their body will make up for the reduced caloric intake by burning fat, but what they don’t often realize is that they are also experiencing a reduction in nutrients. Dr. Feiz explains that it is important for doctors and patients to work closely together to ensure that patients not only lose weight, but remain healthy as they are doing so.
