The Penn Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery Program partners with referring physicians to ensure complete and consistent patient care. A key component to building strong working relationships between the program and its referring physicians is communication.
Program members correspond with referring physicians through every step of the surgical process, helping to ensure the long–term health and success of gastric bypass patients.
- "The Penn Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery team works closely with referring physicians to provide patients with the highest quality, multidisciplinary care. The clinical, educational and scientific activities of our faculty are devoted to providing the best possible patient care and the generation of new knowledge. We value our relationship with the referring physician and maintain consistent communication throughout the patient's surgical care within our program." — Noel N. Williams, MD, FRCSI
