We have undergone some great changes this year. After such a strange year last year, we have had a bit of a shake-up with a fresh new look.
Let me introduce myself; my name is Sarah and I am the new Practice Manager for Dr. Reza Adib at the Brisbane Obesity Clinic. I am very excited to be here to assist you with any of your questions – from your initial enquiry to planning your surgery. I have been managing private medical practices for over 15 years and can offer you expert assistance in all facets of the practice, especially regarding health funds, superannuation applications, and procedures.
I have an active interest in health and wellbeing, particularly with diet and nutrition, and love seeing the life-changing experiences of our patients.
We have had a bit of a facelift in the rooms, with some new signage and some leafy plants. You will also see a new face: our new dietitian, Annette, comes to us with a wealth of experience including a strong background in private practice consulting predominantly in chronic disease and weight management.
Annette will be helping me moderate our Facebook page and private Facebook support group. Are you a member? If not, find it at Brisbane Obesity Clinic Support Group. It is a closed group exclusively for Dr. Adibs’ patients. There are many Bariatric Support Groups on Facebook which have people sharing dietetic information. It is important for these groups to be moderated by an accredited practicing dietitian to ensure that the information shared is sound. Often these groups are filled with trolls and haters, we keep ours kind and compassionate because everyone’s journey is their own.
We also have a new face at the desk, Laura, who joins the team. She is our senior receptionist and comes to us with 10 years of medical & surgical experience. Come in and say hi.
Have you noticed our new look website? It has added features including an online registration form that you can fill out before your appointment. There are also useful protein and water calculators to help you keep an eye on your intake after your procedure. There is a resources page for extra information and we hope to start adding some useful videos for you too. We also have a live chat facility for you to contact our staff online to help you with any queries.
The great news is that we are now stocking BN Multi-Vitamins for sale at the front desk. We also have a supply of Tasteless Collagen, Formulite Soups and shakes, and Gastric Sleeve books for sale. Save on postage and buy them when you come in for your dietitian appointment. You can also purchase them here.
Another change we have made is the way that our patients can pay their accounts. Rather than move large sums of money via credit card, we have implemented BPAY®. On your invoice, there will be a BPAY® code which you can use to transfer funds. This will make paying for your account much easier and quicker! Please send your confirmation receipt to email@example.com to let our staff know.
Dr. Adib and our team at the Brisbane Obesity Clinic welcome you. We look forward to helping you on your weight-loss adventure. Scheduling an appointment is an important first step towards sustainable weight loss and a healthier, brighter future. Let us help you pave the way.
