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

Appt was at 1pm. Nurse rudely told me not to be late and to arrive by 12:30. I showed up at 12:15 to find a not taped to their door that read "Our door will open at 1pm thank you". Dr. entered exam room at 1:45 and I left the exam room to head to scheduling at 1:53 if that gives you any idea about how much time he spent with me. Was sarcastic and rude, not at all compassionate or caring about my situation. Did not discuss the pros or cons of surgery, only asked me to sign the consent form and showed me to his nurse to set up the appointment. Despite having severe and frequent gallbladder attacks my surgery was scheduled for 3 weeks out. I wasn't given an option to have the surgery anywhere but the fancy Audobon center, which YOU pay for through a facility fee. When I got home I spoke with my regular physician who was outraged at my crappy treatment and advised me to see someone else. I gave this physician a 2 star rating for Follows Up After Visit because instead of making sure I got a 7 day post op appointment the nurse stretched it out to 13 days saying "that should still be ok". Avoid Colorado Surgical Associates, they just want your money. You should feel good about who is slicing into your belly. Go to North Surgical instead. I'm writing this review on all of the physicians in this practice because what one does reflects on all of them. Based on the other reviews it sounds like my experience is the norm here anyway. Maybe if their wallets get hit Colorado Surgical will get back to patient CARE.
