Specialties

Dr. Robert Forse 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.

Just think about it first!

He left me hanging about 2 years after my surgery. His staff kept changing and through other specialists of mine I found out he up and left town. To this day his nurse's still have not informed me of his leaving. They won't talk to me about any next appointment and have pawned me off onto my other physicians. He was great to me right after the surgery though. I don't appreciate the poor office decorum.

I was scared when I first went to see Dr. Forse. I hadn't been treated very nicely by other doctors, but I was treated with respect and courtesy in all of my meetings with Dr. Forse. He is an Educator. This was vital to my procedure and follow up care. I have lost over 140lbs since my operation in 2012. Dr. Forse was there for me, answering my questions and giving me the kind of support I needed. I continue (even after 2 years!) to have follow up care and I still keep his phone number in my phone in case I need to talk to him. The best part: I have more energy and I can enjoy my life!
