Will I be kept informed of my patient’s eligibility and enrollment in the program?
After your referral to us, we will confirm whether your patient is eligible and if he/she enrolled in the program. Please ask your patient to share the baseline and follow-up reports that are provided as part of the program. Your ongoing support and encouragement are critical to your patient’s long-term success in making and sustaining important lifestyle changes.
