Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Garza "Weight loss and healthy weight maintenance not only improve medical conditions but they impact quality of life and how people feel about themselves. As a medical student, I was 40 pounds heavier than I am now with borderline high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I sought assistance from a bariatrician - a physician who specializes in the medical (non-surgical) field of weight loss. We use FDA-approved prescription medications along with guidelines for nutrition and behavior changes."
