- 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 got established with Dr Horner in 7/10. I had her treat me for cronic low back and hip pain as well as neck pain. She put me on medication and refered me to therapy for 1 month. I followed up as schedualed 1 month later. About 2 weeks later, I find out she is no longer practicing sports medicine and has gone into weight loss treatment. I was unable to refill my medication because no contact information was left. She should never have taken on new patients if she was planning on leaving 2 months later. I have an HSA account and depleted all of it after seeing her and going through therapy. Now I have to get a new doctor and start all over again before I can get anymore medicine. The worst part of all is I now have to self pay. I find it incredibly unethical the way she handled everything. I am writing this as a warning to any future patients BEWARE!!!!!

Felt like the doctor was disinterested. It felt like pulling teeth to get info out of her, she didn't volunteer information so I wasn't sure how knowledgeable she was; for one of my questions about possible drug interactions, she asked her intern if she knew anything about it. Felt like a waste of my time and money. I do not recommend this doctor.
Try to choose somebody else, if you can.
