Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

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.Read more
