About Us

"If you or your loved ones suffer from obesity, serious health risks, such as hypertension, heart disease, diabetes mellitus, obstructive sleep apnea, arthritis, depression, gastroesophageal reflux disease or fertility problems may be present. (Many of these may be present but not yet diagnosed). Moreover, many other problems may be in store in the near or not too distant future. Doctors call associated health problems "comorbidities" things that come along with or are caused by a disorder. While some of obesity’s comorbidities take their greatest toll on one’s quality of life, others are downright deadly, warranting immediate evaluation and treatment." Our comprehensive bariatric offers both medical and surgical treatment of obesity.
