  • 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.

Awesome guy, office staff needs a lot of work

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?

Office procedures

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.
