Dr. Knighton's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Knighton "As a Weight Loss Physician (Bariatrician) and long-standing member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, I believe in using a multi-faceted approach combining a balance of nutrition, activity, proper vitamin supplementation, and medications to help my patients shed the the extra weight."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Knighton "Hi, I'm Dr. Gary Knighton.  On a daily basis, I see patients that are frustrated with their bodies or their skin, often feeling powerless and painfully aware of their appearance and insecurities. Whether we choose to admit it or not, we all have them. Sadly, our society drives and negatively validates dangerous eating habits, fad diets (such as hCG, starvation or both). Our patients come in loaded with concerns and leave with a smile on their face, feeling better about themselves and looking great!  Our patients are why we do what we do as we help them take control over their lives."

Dr. Knighton and his staff are amazing! This is the best doctor's office I have ever been to. They made me and my wife feel at ease, and they were so caring. Even though we just met for the first time, he made us feel like we have known each other for years. It has been 12 weeks on his program...more
