Hi, doctors can bring awareness to the young patient and his/her family.
This awareness must be delivered in a compassionate manner.If the caregiver does not have the educational oremotional tools to deal with the patient and family; he/she should refer the patient and family to a specialist in weight management a good referral source is the american society of bariatric physicians.Seek experience.
