Make sure your bariatric surgeon works at a hospital your insurance will cover.

Before you get too far down the road with a bariatric provider, make sure your bariatric surgeon of choice works at a top hospital recognized as a Center of Excellence, which is often required for bariatric coverage by most insurance companies. Or if you have Blue Cross Blue Shield, make sure your doctor operates at a Blue Distinction Center as designated by Blue Cross Blue Shield for coverage.

Formally defined by the National Institutes of Health, a Center of Excellence “is a program within a healthcare institution which is assembled to supply an exceptionally high concentration of expertise and related resources centered on a particular area of medicine, delivering associated care in a comprehensive, interdisciplinary fashion to afford the best patient outcomes possible.” These centers are considered the top-tier medical facilities in the country.

Similarly, the Total Care or Blue Distinction® Specialty Care designation is awarded by Blue Cross Blue Shield companies to recognize select doctors, hospitals and other healthcare facilities for the safe, effective care they provide to their patients.

This quality assurance not only provides insurance companies the requirements they need, it provides patients the confidence that they are in good hands. Even if you have surgery scheduled at an outpatient surgery center, if you run into a complication and need to go to the hospital, make sure your surgeon has credentials at a reputable hospital that your insurance will cover.

If you are ready to get healthy, chose the best care available.

Our team of world-class surgeons are all credentialed at some of the top hospitals in DFW and have the designations to meet bariatric coverage requirements that many insurance companies require. Call 972-494-3100 to schedule a consult now or request an appointment online or ask a question.

What our patients think of our surgeons.

"I will always recommend The Nicholson Clinic. I live in Ada, Oklahoma and drove all the way there to have all of my appointments and the surgery itself. I could have gone somewhere else closer to my hometown but chose not to!"

"I am a nurse and so I did as much research as I could to make sure I landed with a good and qualified surgeon! Although, bedside manner wasn’t my top priority, Dr. Nicholson had it all! He sat down and had a one-on-one conversation with me about the risks and benefits, it wasn’t a rushed visit. My surgery was perfect! I had no complications and his "rules" pre- and post- op, set me up for the safest and most productive journey I could have hoped to have! I am 3 months out at 67 lbs. down and feel better than I ever have!! Thank you Dr. Nicholson for giving me my life back!!"

"Dr. Roshek is very personable. Non-judgmental. When you are so overweight for so long, you invent reasons not to do things and always think that someone else is judging you as a person that can't handle themselves. At the Nicholson Clinic, I always felt like everyone there was behind me and willing to help at any point. Best thing about Dr. Roshek is that he always seemed confident in what I was doing, which in turn gave me confidence to be successful."

"I am a respiratory therapist and did some research before choosing a clinic. I found Dr. Brian Long and I could not be happier. He explained my options to me and what he felt would be best for me. I appreciated the fact that some background goes into the decision such as nutrition and consulting to ensure you are in the right state of mind. I am 5 months post op and I'm down 71 pounds. I'm running 3 miles, 4-5 times a week now. I feel fantastic and I love that I treat food with a different mindset. It is for nutrition only not for pleasure. Thank you Dr. Long!!!"
