- 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.

I saw a review on this site that suggested Dr. Kirkland was unprofessional, so when I was matched with him based on my needs and availability, I was a bit concerned. While he has yet to perform my surgery, the visit I had to discuss my surgery proved him to be the best doctor I have seen for my ongoing issue. I have seen 2 E.R. doctors, my primary care physician, and another surgeon. Dr. Kirkland was the first to sit down with me and actually tell me what was happening inside my body, what needed to be done, and why it couldn't be avoided. I am still scared to be operated on, but I feel much better after having met with his doctor.
I was referred to Dr. Kirkland due to colon blockage, he didn't read the information the referring physician or I provided to his staff, didn't even introduce himself or even know my name. He commanded me to stand up, pummeled my stomach for a few seconds which left me gasping and said there was nothing he could do and I should go back to my referring physician for more tests. I timed him and he was with me for 3 minutes and 49 seconds because I was warned before hand that he was brusque. Brusque is understatement, he was simply as unprofessional as possible.
