Blossom Bariatrics Introduces Dr. Tom Umbach in an Online Video

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA – August 25, 2014 /MarketersMedia/ –

Dr. Tom Umbach, a nationally recognized, fellowship-trained Las Vegas bariatric surgery specialist, has been featured in a new online video. “It’s a journey. Weight loss is a journey and it is important to trust your guide. This video is an opportunity to introduce myself and my gastric bypass practice and to build patient-doctor relationships.”

In the July 2014 edition of The Hospitalist, “Dr. Hospitalist” responds to a question about whether “Professional Dress Code Helps Physicians Earn Patient Confidence, Trust.” The Dr. explains that “the white coat and professional look […] represent cleanliness and authority.” Conceding that “first impressions are priceless” the Dr. emphasizes, “[Doctors] take an oath to distinguish ourselves and espouse a standard of professionalism that is necessary to earn the trust of patients.”

Because first impressions deeply influence patient interactions, confidence and trust must be established quickly and credibly maintained. “It is an important balance: convenience and confidence,” Dr. Tom shares. “The video conveniently shows our offices and personnel; even before they visit us, they develop a sense of familiarity. Something else I like to do, which leads to trust and confidence, is give my patients my cell phone. In fact, it’s on my business card […] my cell phone number is right there, so they can call me any time with questions or concerns.”

Dr. Tom’s staff also works hard to build and maintain patient confidence and success. As is often the case, patients feel more alone after the surgery. Blossom Bariatrics‘ nutritionist, Michelle Phelan, empathizes and supplements her patient care with a series of videos to help post-op patients. She confirms, “We’re always here for you before, during, and after your weight loss surgery procedure—because it’s the after that’s the most important part.”
