About

Bio

I am been practicing bariatric (weight loss) medicine for 35 years. Our practice utilizes a high protein, low carb, low fat diet. If indicated, we dispense prescription appetite suppressants as part of our program. We have a 150 recipe cookbook that patients receive on their first visit.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
