Michelle Pollock, RD/LD
I am a registered and licensed dietitian at Expert Surgical. I graduated from Texas Woman’s University in Denton, TX and was accepted into a rigorous ACCEND accredited dietetic internship program at Medical City Hospital in Dallas. There I worked closely with some of the best clinical and community dietitians in the DFW area. I have since dedicated much of my focus to the clinical and bariatric fields.
During an initial nutrition evaluation, I begin by assessing and identifying a patient’s likes/dislikes, dietary habits, current social activities, and readiness for diet, lifestyle, and behavior change. My goal is to make patients aware of the risks and benefits of the procedure and ensure each patient leaves with realistic expectations for successful long-term weight loss. I highly encourage patients to begin making changes prior to surgery to ensure transition after surgery is easier.
