Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Richard "Long-term weight loss is a life-long journey. And after more than 4,000 surgeries, Obesity Solutions in Northeast Georgia knows that the journey's outcome depends on far more than a successful surgery. Our approach to treating morbid obesity is not a "quick fix," but rather a long-term commitment of emotional and psychological help. For our patients who have committed to changing their lives, we provide a comprehensive program of pre- and post-operative education, therapy, nutrition counseling and lifelong follow-up support."

Lithonia, GA |
Dr. Richard is a wonderful doctor. He is truthful, kind and caring. His staff is also very kind and caring. I feel honored that he preformed my gastric sleeve surgery.

Had an open gastric bypass 13 years ago performed by Doctor Richard. He is a great man and an even better surgeon. I highly recommend his entire medical team. I was 410 lbs at pre-op. Now at 13 years post op, I am 226 lbs. So because I've kept it off, I know you can as well! God Bless!
