Dr. Starpoli and the American Obesity Center have access to smart technology and virtual consultations through Apollo Care to provide close follow up for patients undergoing procedures such as the Orbera intragastric balloon. This process can ensure success in the journey of weight management.
Obesity continues to skyrocket in the United States and throughout the world. An individual’s long-term success is dependent on their commitment to a lifetime of dietary and lifestyle change. Working with a Registered Dietitian and healthcare team can help achieve a positive outcome and optimize weight loss after bariatric procedures. We know life is busy and patients have many other commitments in addition to managing their health. Therefore treatment should be efficient and effective. Our unique platform allows you to work with a dietitian from your home or office, or even on-the-go with your mobile device, allowing appointments to be easy, convenient and accessible. The FDA approved technology platform enables HIPAA compliant video consultations with the option to log meals with a photo food journal and link a Fit Bit for activity tracking. The dietitian will be able to monitor your weight loss progress, as well as make actionable suggestions for lifestyle change based on diet and activity.
