Specialties

Dr. Katherine L Stam has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.

Cares About Her Patients

I've been a patient of Dr. Stam's for about 8 years. She is a physician who takes her job home with her. It is not unusual for her to call in the evening and say "I was thinking about this a bit more and did a little more research..." My children and I are patients, and if I am at the office for one of the children, Dr. Stam will also ask me how I am, if I need anything. She truly cares about her patients.

In diagnosing a condition, she found some unexpected spots. She made arrangements for further diagnosis and subsequent surgery within days. She listens, is very thorough, and exhibits interest in patients. One of the best general doctors I've ever had.
