- 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.
Patients defined as obese or having unhealthy Body Mass Indices (BMI) have much greater risk of heart disease, diabetes, asthma, sleep apnea, hypertension, many types of cancer and chronic musculoskeletal problems.

I am really impressed with Dr. Chin. He seems bright, enthusiastic, and well-educated. Some of his staff, however, are lacking in basic social etiquette and manners. One girl left me a message and when I called back, it took her a really long time for her to figure out who I was. Jeez. Way to make a patient feel like a number, plus, don't you write that stuff down?
I had surgery and was advised to Marie a follow up appointment which was made . Twice now my appointment has been canceled. First time message was left on my phone after I had left for the appointment. Second time there was no message. Both times I showed up at the office to find my appointment changed. I see no need in returning to visit this doctor.
