Hannah Ruxton – Bariatric Patient Advocate

Hannah was born and raised in Southern Virginia and recently moved down to Florida after living here previously when she was younger.

She is a bariatric patient herself and went through her own journey in 2019 after having the Sleeve Gastrectomy. She continues to be a success story for patients considering weight loss surgery. Hannah will meet with you during your initial consultation one-on-one to advocate for you, explain the insurance process, patient benefits, surgical criteria, and next steps in your journey to a new, healthier life!
