The history, physical examination, and initial testing of the patient
affected by obesity has unique aspects that enables us to:
- Create a supportive environment free of stigma or bias
- Understand an individual’s unique weight history
- Create a comprehensive assessment of the severity of obesity and
Whether any obesity-related disorders are also present. Some diseases require close attention as medications used to treat them may become too strong (diabetes, hypertension).
- Use this comprehensive assessment to develop an individualized treatment plan to optimize patient success
