Dr. Anthony D Terracina has the following 2 specialties

  • Bariatric Medicine

    Bariatric medicine focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity. Bariatric specialists are trained in medically supervised weight loss and the management of obesity as a chronic condition. These specialists are skilled in various disciplines that help patients lose weight and obtain optimal health.
    The field encompasses dieting, exercise and behavioral therapy, anti-obesity medication, pharmacotherapy and surgery. Bariatric specialists might be from surgical backgrounds and perform obesity-related operations or they might be nutrition and hormone focused, prescribing diet and exercise plans as well as weight loss medications.

Outstanding

Dr. Terracina is wonderful. He is kind and compassionate while also being professional and highly competent. I felt totally at ease under his care. Thank you Dr. Terracina for giving me a new start at age 72. Your entire team is supportive and caring. A former size 18-20 now a size 8- 10. More importantly, my A1C last week was 5.5 and I walk up 3 flights of stairs daily without panting or pain. Thank you, thank you thank you!

Best Bariatric Doc on the Peninsula

Dr. Terracina is that rare combination: a technically gifted surgeon with a passion for excellence, as well as a personable, warm, communicative and supportive human being. Referred to as the best. He certainly was a godsend in my life. I'm only six months out from surgery, and I'm down over 100 pounds. The staff and nutritional support is fabulous.
