Support Groups

Support Groups are FREE for those patients who undergo bariatric surgery at Atlanta Medical Center. Groups are offered multiple times each month. There are two different support group sessions that offer an open forum for bariatric patients to discuss and share their experiences.

Support Groups for pre- and post-bariatric surgery patients meet on the following days & times:

The first Monday of the month (with the exception of a major holiday)
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

WellStar Atlanta Medical Center South
Medical Arts Center
1136 Cleveland Avenue, Suite 300
East Point, GA 30344

Please call 866-404-4677 to confirm the location.

We will have professional speakers lead the group in a lively and informative discussion as we conquer topics unique to pre- and post- weight loss surgery. No reservation is necessary.

Meetings will be held every 2nd and 4th Tuesday (with the exception of holidays)
