Support Groups

Surgical Weight Management support groups are a great way to stay motivated, share challenges and successes with fellow patients, and optimize weight loss and healthy living.  Both current and prospective patients are invited to attend.  Our support group meetings are facilitated by health care professionals, including our bariatric nurses, registered dietitians, licensed mental health providers, or physicians.

Support Groups are held at Physicians Medical Center located at 218 Corporate Drive in Houma, Louisiana 70360.

Please note: Support Groups have been changed to Tuesday nights from 6:00pm until 7:30pm.
