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 went in to Dr. Chang for a rectal issue. Dr. Chang and her nurse, Nancy were great. On the other hand, the staff waited until the last minute to call my insurance to get precertification for my surgery, and it didn't get approved in time. Therefore, I had to retake all of the tests that I had already done, because the hospital requires the tests within a week of surgery, and mine got pushed out 10 days. I had to call constantly to make sure my tests got processed. The 2 times they sent me in for pre-surgical tests, when I got to the hospital, they didn't have the order because the staff never sent it. The staff needs improvement. After making a stink about their lack of service, I spoke with the office manager, who also made excuses for the staff. Once I called her out on every one of the excuses she had, things started to move forward. Dr. Chang, you need a leader in your office, instead of incompetent excuse makers. I have a job, and I take it seriously. My customers come first, they are not just a piece of paper. Customer service has to be number 1.

I went with an abdominal pain to dr. chang. She prescribed a CT scan. I called them numerous times to find my test results. But never got a call from them. Even the office staff do not answer calls. The worst was when I asked them for a pain medication. Never got a call for that. Finally I had to call my PCP and he prescribed a pain medication. Dr.Chang finally called and left a message to page her. I did but she never responded. I've had 4 surgeries in the past 10 years. I have never had any experience like this. Finally after numerous tries to contact them a nurse told me to go and see the surgeon who did my hysterectomy last year. The whole 2 weeks was an ordeal for me and my family.
