Dr. Valerie J Halpin has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Patient truly knows...

Office staff is great: always friendly and takes the time to address scheduling or billing concerns. This provides a very supportive environment for folks with bariatric surgical needs. Dr. Halpin would receive a higher rating if she would listen a bit more intently and acknowdege that when the patient is voicing a concern that there is a problem or issues, most likely there is something going on. Goal would be for Dr. Halpian to quickly identify complications from her surgical interventions so as to promote safer bariatric experiences for others.

I found Dr. Halpin professional as well as caring. She was interested in me as a person, not just a patient. I have enjoyed getting to know her better on follow up appointments.
