  • 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.

Great bedside manner!

I love D. Naik and his staff. As soon as I arrived they notified me that he was running late and stated I could step out and run a errand if I wanted. The receptionist stated she would call me when their was one patients in front of me. I have waited for hours in other medical facilities and this was the first time that I felt that the staff was caring for me as well as the doctor. I did as suggested and went to the 99cent store that is walking distance from their office. They called when I was next in line. I wish my general doctor would take on this policy. Dr. Naik was very apologetic for running late. However, he never pushed my appointment or made me feel rushed. Oh and he is so handsome! Too bad and a decade too old for him. Hehe

Best surgeon in town!

I cannot explain how blessed I feel to have met dr Naik! I originally saw him for my gal bladder surgery. He was so friendly. While in the office I discovered that he also does weight loss surgeries. I went to his seminar the following week and began my weight loss journey. I have lost over 120 in one year!!! Now my husband is in the process of getting his gastric sleeve by Dr. Naik.
