- 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.

Dr Risk was prompt but after getting done dr I was scheduled for the nutrionist who had someone in her office that was late or not scheduled and we sat and waited and waited 50 mins... Not real happy. Messed up my plans and skipped appt w nurse which was paid for as had to get going. They should not have taken the lady that was late. I was required to make a $500 deposit even though I explained my deductible was very close to paid, under $50. Was $20 upon final bill, got refund after asking twice.
