Quite often we are asked “what is obesity medicine”, and “what can my patients expect when they see you?”…
Obesity Medicine is the field of medicine dedicated to the comprehensive care of patients with obesity and overweight.
We are Diplomats of the American Board of Obesity Medicine and Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology. We follow AACE Guidelines, use medically appropriate therapies based on the evolving science and understanding of appetite and how it’s regulated, and monitor patients frequently for safety and effective treatment.
We see all our new patients for an initial hour-long visit. At this visit, we combine education on nutrition, behavior, and our program. We review labs, EKG (patients may bring or send recent copies), and patient history. Plans and treatment are individualized. Follow up visits are typically monthly depending on the patient’s need.
We would be happy to come to your office with information on our medical practice. Please contact us to schedule a meeting for your practice.
