Meet Jan Norris, Bariatric Clinical Coordinator

| Date Posted: 1/4/2014 | Author: Ellen Geanes

Jan NorrisAs the coordinator for more than two years, Jan has helped numerous bariatric patients through their entire weight-loss surgery process. When patients are ready for surgery, Jan navigates these patients through the pre-op process – all the way from the first information session attended, to the day of surgery.

“I assist patients during most of the surgery process,” she says. “From contacting insurance companies to coordinating the surgery schedule, I am there to help each and every patient.”

Jan says the best part of her job is watching patients get their lives back and being able to do things they were not able to do before surgery. “I love seeing people change,” she says. “I like to see patients who now have the opportunity to play with their grandkids, ride on an airplane and just live their lives.”

Jan also sells various food and beverage items, as well as vitamins, to help patients before and after the surgery.
