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.

Friendly doctor, friendly nurse, friendly receptionist, everyone here was just so friendly! I will recommend Dr. Stephens to anyone who needs a surgeon. He made sure I fully understood everything before I left his office. Overall a wonderful experience during a not so wonderful situation. You don't have to wait a long time for a follow up appointment, either.
