The Exemplo Medical Patient Portal

To aid you in your weight loss, we encourage each of our patients to sign up for, and utilize, the Exemplo Medical Patient Portal. This helpful, virtual tool allows patients to keep track of the entire bariatric surgery process.

Pre-surgery, patients use the Exemplo Medical Patient Portal to complete their registration and medical history forms, as well as to track the progress of when we receive paperwork and documentation from consultants and physicians. Post-surgery, patients can calculate food consumption, track exercise activities, create journal entries, establish goals, and exchange private and secure messages with our medical staff.

If you have not received your access code, please contact our office at 678-312-6200.
