- 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.

He is a cut and run surgeon. Once he does your surgery you will never see him again. He schedules appointments every 5 minutes if that tells you how much of his attention you will get. He messed up my surgery and I had to find another surgeon willing to take on my case. Not to mention he will only do procedures at one specific hospital and uses the same internal medicine doc who is not adequate. Do not waste your time.
When I first started looking into getting this procedure done, I should have looked better into doctors and what people had to say about them. Getting the surgery done was no problem but the after care really slacks in all ways. I am on my 3rd hernia due to this surgery, and the staff less to speak of the doctor refuses to call me back after calling from coming home from another round at the ER from my hernia. It has became so painful this last time my blood pressure was through the roof. I have called over and over again, trying to get in earlier to see the doctor, but no phone calls are ever returned to me, it makes me feel like I am not important any more, he has the money from the surgery so now move on. His arrogance when I do talk to him in his office though makes me wonder why didn't I just research him fully first. I feel like he lines us all up for surgery (like cattle) and once he is done with us it's like get along now, move on, let me get on with my next patient (money).
Once complications developed he became increasingly difficult with whom to communicate. He wouldn't listen to the hospital staff, the staff walk on eggshells around him because he is quick to put them in their place should they suggest something or advocate for their patient. He wants everyone around him to know that HE is the doctor and no one else should dare question him. He is vengeful in that he will avoid orders or write additional tedious orders to get back at the staff member who questioned him.
