- 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.

Dr. Weinstein is very professional, good, and knowledgeable in his field. I had gastric bypass years ago, and when there was something that I neglected to do right, I could call phone number given to me, and like clock work, I would receive a phone call from Dr. Weinstein with solutions to the problem. I don’t know very many doctors that actually call you back, regardless of the time. Amazing!!! What ever treatment he prescribe, do it, he knows his stuff. He will not pull any punches with you. Thanks Dr. Weinstein
Dr. Weinstein was the exact same person I saw from the first time I met him until now. I attended a small seminar he held on weight loss surgery and I was engaged the entire time. He genuinely cares and he is 100% honest. He pulls no punches, doesn't beat around the bush and when he told me that he could help me, I believed him. Others have tried in the past, but gave me little hope of happiness in my future. Dr. Weinstein gave me hope because of the strength of the support structure he helps you to build around yourself in the beginning stages. He truly is the most impressive, most aware, most honest, most intelligent doctor I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. For the first time in my life, I am excited to see what tomorrow has in store.
