We see patients on a daily basis that receive guidance and counselling to assist in weightloss. I now know and understand the extreme difficulties people have in their attempts at weightloss. Most upper management are driven more by numbers rather than the well being of the patients. Staff in the clinics are amazing. They have great levels of compassion, patience, and the tools necessary for the patients. The most difficult part of the position is learning why these people have weight issues. There are fine lines for what they are allowed to disclose, but sometimes they just need to talk. It makes it difficult to keep it impersonal. I love the patient interraction and success stories that come with it!! To know we helped someone succeed in weight loss is most gratifying.
