As a result of our commitment to providing world class care to patients of the Bariatric and Metabolic Institute, we are interested in learning more about you. Your general health, before and after bariatric surgery is of great interest to us to improve the quality of care we give our patients at the Bariatric and Metabolic Institute. For this reason we have established a database which will house health and clinical data to allow us to conduct research. The information contained in this questionnaire may become part of your permanent patient record and therefore may be subject to your medical providers being able to view this information. By conducting research on the information in the database, we will learn more about your health status and long term impact of Bariatric Surgery. It will help us to learn how to improve the lives of people receiving care at the Cleveland Clinic. For full disclosure, please click here.
