Ultimate Bariatrics encourages support group attendance because of the many benefits it offers our patients. Dr. Adam Smith believes that the success of any weight loss surgery patient is dependent on the patient making lifestyle changes. Support groups meetings can aid with these lifestyle changes. Support groups are in-person at the Fort Worth office or available online and led by a trained professional, either a licensed psychologist or someone affiliated with our staff. We offer support groups to better serve our patients. Please check below for a time and place that will best serve you.
