Bariatric medicine focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity.

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.
One subspecialty of bariatrics is the focus on the correlation between obesity and mortality.

This doctors office is not cohesively run. You always get an answering machine when you call and you have to make multiple calls to get a return call. We had to call and call to schedule tests that needed to be done. We were not even given notice about scheduling until the hospital called and said my husband was scheduled that day for tests----no one even told us we were scheduled. VERY poor follow up and communication. We will look elsewhere for a doctor we can trust.
