Begin Your Journey to a Healthy Life

Take the first step toward weight-loss surgery.

There are a couple of ways to begin your journey. You can attend a seminar - either in-person or online - and if you are not yet ready for a seminar, you can proceed without registering for either.

Online Seminars:

Our Online Seminars provide you with the same information you receive during our In-Person Seminars, however you are able to watch the presentation on your schedule, from the comfort of your own home. You will need to be in a quiet area, and allow one hour to complete the seminar. 

It is recommended that you have a pen and paper close by to jot down any notes or questions you may have throughout the presentation.  

Upon viewing the seminar in its entirety, please call our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Pennings. It is highly recommended that you contact your insurance company and get detailed information regarding bariatric surgery coverage prior to calling our office.  

To view the Online Seminar, you will need to have the latest version of Flash. If you do not have the latest version, or if you are unsure, click here. 

In-Person Seminars:

About our Seminars: This is a lecture/seminar for those seeking information about weight loss surgery and goes from 5PM-6:30PM the last Tuesday of every month. Attendance at a lecture/seminar is required for all potential patients prior to setting up a consult with Dr. Pennings. There is so much valuable information to exchange at these lectures and there is always a panel of patients who have had the surgery and are at various stages in recovery and success. 

We do ask that if possible, spouses or committed partners attend, as this is a major life decision and one that the doctor and his staff feel not only affects the entire family but should be understood by the entire household. Due to space limitations, it is requested that if you are interested attending this seminar/lecture, please call 208 262-0945 to register so we can make sure there is appropriate seating for all those wishing to attend. We look forward to seeing you there.
