Relocation from Michigan to Arizona 12/18

on 12/27/18 10:31 am - Glendale, AZ

I am almost 10 years out. I am relocating from Michigan to the Phoenix area at the end of the year. I need a doctor or bariatician in the area. Also looking for a Weight Management Group. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated! :)

I'm starting the Non-Surgical program at Banner Health Care WLS Clinic in Chandler.

I had my surgery in MA. I don't need revision, but I need to help in reaching my goal. They have support group meetings too, but I haven't got that information yet.

Hi theelopers,

Wow what a change. I grew up in MI and AZ is the opposite of MI. I am sure you will love it. We have several quality surgeons in the Phoenix area. Here are links, take a look at their profiles and give them a call. If you need help let me know.

The mayo bariatric support group is open to anyone; it only meets every other month though.
