A BARIATRICIAN (Bariatric – Root word Baro, meaning heavy or large) is a doctor who specializes in the science and treatment of obesity and obesity related chronic diseases. Bariatricians use safe and effective weight loss methods and provide long term continuity for bariatric surgery patients.
Bariatrician is not the same as a bariatric surgeon. Bariatric surgeons are doctors who specialize in surgical treatments for weight reduction such as gastric bypass surgery, sleeve gastectomy, and vertical sleeve gastrectomy.
Most patients pay out of pocket using cash or credit cards. We accept HSA, FSA, and Care Credit. We do not accept checks. All patients receive Super Bills that can be given to the insurance company to request reimbursement for the visit.
