Plano, TX, September 14, 2014 - The Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery, one of the most renowned weight loss surgery centers in the country, has announced a new interactive feature on their website that allows potential patients to determine if they are a surgery candidate through an easy to use online quiz. The ability to offer this kind of tool to online visitors is priceless, says Dr. Nick Nicholson, founder of the Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery, who believes that it’s imperative to provide patients with as much information as possible.
“Our practice always been about transparency,” says Dr. Nicholson. “We feel strongly that patients should have access to as much information as possible. Ultimately, more informed patients are the most successful patients. It’s so important for patients to be involved in the process from the very beginning and that starts with determining if they are a candidate for surgery.”
The Nicholson Clinic’s website offers a variety of information regarding weight loss surgery including details about the options for procedures, as well as information regarding recovery and what to expect from a life after surgery. Included on the website is a link to an online quiz where patients can answer simple questions to determine if they may be considered a candidate for weight loss surgery. Dr. Nicholson wants website visitors to understand that ultimately candidacy will be determined after a full examination and evaluation but that the online quiz at least helps prospective patients understand if some of their markers are in line with surgery candidacy.
“Sometimes patients need to see firsthand that their weight, their body mass index, or the obesity-related diseases that they are experiencing are indeed serious enough for surgery to be an option,” says Dr. Nicholson. “ and their health, the online quiz is a very quick way to determine if making a consultation appointment with our practice makes sense.”
