Meet Linda Keller-Doyle, bariatric program facilitator
Linda treats every patient like a member of her family
Mercy Bariatrics welcomes Linda Keller-Doyle, our bariatrics program facilitator at Mercy Fitzgerald and Mercy Philadelphia Hospitals. She serves as the primary contact for bariatric patients throughout their weight loss journey.
Linda meets with patients on their first visit, when she explains how the program works and answers questions they may have. As patients prepare for their upcoming surgery, she walks them through their preoperative appointments, then provides ongoing support and follows up after their procedures. Patients have access to Linda 24/7 by calling her through the Bariatrics Hotline whenever they have a concern.
“It’s crucial that our patients have a supportive network of people who will help them before, during and after surgery,” says Linda. “Our patients can count on me to help them through their entire journey. I’m here to help them make lifestyle changes that will improve their outcomes and overall health, and ultimately, help them live longer, healthier lives!”
Linda coordinates support group meetings for bariatric patients, as well.
“Mercy Bariatrics is a very people-centered program, and our team treats every patient like a family member,” says Linda. “I’m proud to be part of a team that gets to know our patients very well and is able to make a big impact on their future.”
