    Are you ready to take that first step to achieve better health, improved quality of life, and reach your weight loss goals? Dr. Colquitt and his expert team are ready to help you every step of the way. Your journey will start by attending a required free in-person seminar so you can learn about your options and meet our surgeons and team members in a Q&A session.

All seminar attendees are welcome to attend the support group meetings that follow each seminar. We welcome your family and friends.
