Angela Britt, supervisor of patient service operations, coordinates the care of patients who undergo weight loss surgery. She attends all informational seminars, answers questions about insurance coverage, and guides patients through the program beginning with pre-operative appointments and continuing with follow-up appointments and support groups.
Angela has worked in the Department of Surgery for 7 years. In a previous position, she supervised the pre-certification team for bariatric and other procedures.
Angela, who has had laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (see story), finds her work with weight loss surgery patients very satisfying. "I enjoy helping patients obtain their dream of living a healthier life," she says.
