To Our Valued Patients,
Winthrop Surgical Associates is excited to announce that the 120 Mineola Blvd. office of the Minimally lnvasive/Bariatric Surgery Program is moving to a new state-of-the-art facility at 700 Stewart Ave., Suite 200, Garden City. Our surgeons Dr. Collin Brathwaite, Dr. Alexander Barkan, and Dr. Keneth Hall, along with our support staff (nurse practitioners, nurses and front desk staff) will begin offering personalized, expert care there beginning May 31st.
We will continue to provide the latest in Robotic Laparoscopic Bariatric and General Surgeries at Winthrop-University Hospital, although our Nassau County practice will no longer be located across the street from the hospital. Please be aware that if you currently have an appointment scheduled for after May 30, we will look forward to seeing you at the new office location.
Our Mineola Bariatric Surgery Support Groups will also take place at the new location beginning July 2016 on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month at 6pm. Meetings will be led by Liz Schledorn at 700 Stewart Ave. in the Education Room, Level 2, Suite 202. We encourage you to join us to learn more about how to live your best life after surgery and avoid common mistakes.
An important notice to all patients who have had bariatric surgery: we remind all patients to schedule your annual follow-up visit. It is very important that you follow up with our office at least once a year if you have had any surgical procedure that predisposes you to vitamin deficiencies, potential hernias, or even postoperative complications associated with bariatric procedures. We want to ensure that you have the very best and comprehensive care for your lifetime!
