Local Support Groups

Dear Patients:

I am pleased to announce our affiliation with Lois Hansen, LPC-S and Barbara Bryant, LPC-S, of Comprehensive HealthCare Associates, new local licensees of Bariatric Support Centers International (BSCI).  Brazos Bariatrics is the first in the state of Texas to provide you, our patients, with professionals licensed by the Bariatric Support Centers International.   Since 2000, BSCI has provided quality educational and support services for over 15,000 bariatric patients and the professionals who serve them.  Whether you are just contemplating surgery, two weeks post op, three years out, or anywhere in between, we can provide you with additional access to a large community of support with excellent resources to help you reach and maintain your weight-loss goals.

In addition to our support groups, we now have available other exciting support resources.  The Success Habits of Weight Loss Surgery Patients Program Packages are now available for my bariatric patients.  Participants of this fee- based Program will have these wonderful support resources, as well as unlimited access to our Success Habits Classes and Weekly Weigh-ins. I am confident that you will find that your participation in these classes will provide you with even more structure; encouragement and support you need to reach and maintain your optimum weight loss and health goals.

I am also pleased to introduce BSCI's comprehensive Back On Track fee-based Program.  This program has been used with much success throughout the country, and has now arrived in Texas.  It has been designed especially for WLS patients who have reached an extended plateau or who are struggling with weight regain.  The next Back on Track 6-week program begins Wednesday, September 23 at 12:00 noon located in the conference room at Comprehensive HealthCare Associates location in Bryan.  For details or to pre-register please call 979-776-0289.

As always, we at Brazos Bariatrics are dedicated to excellence in providing you with outstanding education and support services for a lifetime of health.  Our affiliation with Comprehensive HealthCare Associates and Bariatric Support Centers International will further help us do just that.  I encourage you to meet Lois and Barbara at our next support group or call CHCA at 979-776-0289.

Dr. John A. Mason, Jr.
