Request an Appointment
All patients may also submit our online form to request an appointment in the Weight Loss Surgery Center.

This form is NOT for urgent appointment requests. Your request will be sent to a Weight Loss Surgery Center representative, who will contact you via phone during regular business hours (Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.) to schedule your appointment.

If you are having a medical emergency and are in need of immediate assistance, please call 911.

I have read and understand the message above. I am a patient and realize a BIDMC Weight Loss Surgery Center representative will contact me within two business days.

Preparing for Your First Visit

Please download and print the following forms, complete them, and bring them to your initial appointment.

Bring a Loved One and a Notebook

We encourage you to invite a family member or trusted friend to your first appointment.  In fact, we welcome a loved one at most appointments to help and support you as you gather information about your health and treatment. Remember to bring a list of any questions you have for the Weight Loss Surgery team, and a notebook so you can jot down information.

Post-operative Patients

Please call us at 617-667-2845 or request an appointment online, and one of our administrative assistants will help you schedule your next visit.

If you're not sure when you should follow up, check our Post-Operative Follow-Up Schedule guidelines. We look forward to seeing you!
