About Me

I am excited to be working in partnership with my patients to treat an important underlying process that can cause many serious diseases: obesity. I hope to use new scientific knowledge to bring hope to people suffering from weight issues. Working with new innovations in diet, physical activity, medicines, cognitive and behavioral methods, and referrals for surgical procedures when appropriate, I expect to help my patients find lasting success in treating their weight problem and its potential medical consequences.
