Meet Our Bariatric Team
LouAnn is the CBSI medical receptionist and your first contact with our office. She helps prospective patients schedule appointments and provides them with a timeline of what to expect throughout their weight-loss journey. Her organization helps to prepare patients for their appointments before and after surgery. She is skilled at coordinating the schedules of multidisciplinary team members across the board, and arranging patient consults with Dr. Brown. LouAnn has been instrumental to the CBSI team since 2011, with over 15 years of experience in the healthcare field.
Dina is our bariatric insurance coordinator. It is Dina who communicates with the insurance provider—on behalf of the patient—in order to determine which bariatric benefits are available to him or her. She helps patients understand the costs associated with surgery per their insurance plan, and schedules any medically supervised weight loss visits that are required in accordance with their insurance plan, before surgery. Dina has been an integral part of the Colorado Bariatric Surgery Institute team since 2013.
