    Bariatric medicine focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity.

Amazing Dr

Dr Leiva is wonderful. He is very knowledgable and caring. He will answer all your questions and take his time with you. When I would ask him specifics about my surgery he would be happy to explain in detail and was not condensending. I am very happy with my results and feel better than ever. I never had any complications after surgery and actually enjoy my follow up visits. His staff is also very helpful and courteous.
