I started my medical career with dreams of contributing my skills to healing illness and improving the lives of my patients. However, as I got into my day-to-day practice, I quickly learned that I was not satisfied with the approach the medical community took to treating preventable diseases, such as high blood pressure, hypertension, and type 2 diabetes. The common response to these conditions is often to prescribe medication, often multiple prescriptions at a time.

I also realized that most of my patients who suffered from preventable diseases had one thing in common ??? they were all overweight or obese. I realized that if I were able to treat their weight issues, then the other conditions would improve or disappear altogether. And I learned that weight loss was more than just proper diet and exercise. Weight is a medical issue, both physiological and psychological, and it needs to be treated as such. No two people are alike, and that is reflected in a person’s ability to lose weight and keep it off in the long-term.

As the founder of The Center for Medical Weight Loss and its Chief Medical Officer, I treat the root causes of overweight and obesity with a safe, medically-proven approach. Since the program started, I have seen countless patients lose hundreds of pounds, get off their meds, and gain back control of their lives. I couldn’t be more thankful for being able to help my patients make lifestyle changes that give them a whole new outlook on what they can accomplish in life.

And now, I get to share my passion and knowledge with you through this new blog. There???s so much to talk about when it comes to weight loss, and I can’t wait to start the conversation with you. Please don’t be shy about adding your questions, thoughts, or ideas to the comments section of each post. I’ll do my best to provide you with facts and answers to help you get started and stay on your weight loss journey.
