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.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Jonathan D Spitz - Posted on August 24th, 2015
Dr Spitz spent so little time with me pre op and zero time post op, that I could not tell you if he seems knowledgeable or what his bedside manner is like. He did not come in to my recovery room post op to tell me what he did or how it went. A week later and no follow up call from his office to see how I'm doing. What I can tell you is that during my pre op appointment he was very rough, leaving me hurting for two weeks. His touch is better suited as a plumber.
