- 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.

He is inept, very rude, does not listen one bit and does not care about his patients comfort whats so ever. He was very misleading in his opinions. I wouldn't let him babysit my neighbors pet rock, let alone perform surgery on me. I have multiple hernias and he wanted to operate on me 3 different times, just cares about money, money, money. He will NOT perform surgery without a mesh patch for a hernia, so don't bother him. He is incapable. He actually told me to wait until my hernia is STUCK outside my body, then go to the emergency room for emergency surgery or I could die!!! Actual quote out of his mouth!! He made several other VERY disturbing statements. WORST DOCTOR EVER, STAY AWAY. On a good note, his staff was very friendly.
Just a horrible experience, he suggested to call him back before 6 months only if my hernia gets Stuck outside. He even went into great detail how to massage it back in if it gets stuck out and then I shouldn't worry about it. Only if it stays stuck should I bother him with a call. At that point you have to go to the ER before the blood flow cuts off and your life is in danger, so why would I ever call back a doctor who gives that advice. I don't think he heard a single word I said as my first words were that I am in pain daily just walking up the stairs and my hernia pops out multiple times a day. I am glad it was only a consultation and I never have to see him again, as that was just one of several disturbing statements. On a good note, the staff was very friendly.
