IamA board certified obesity doctor who has helped thousands of patients lose weight without surgery. AMA!
I decided to specialize in obesity care after bonding with a 14 year old patient who developed heart failure because of his weight.
I got board certified after running a successful obesity program at the MPTF Medical Group (Now UCLA Entertainment Industry Medical Group). The MPTF serves people working in entertainment, but think electricians and grips vs. actors and actresses.
I try all the nutritional programs I prescribe on myself including Atkins, Zone, mild keto, low cal, low fat, 12 hour fast, juicing, vegetarianism, veganism and pescaterianism. Over the course of my practice I have learned that weight loss is just as much a mental health challenge as it is a physical health challenge. That is why I am piloting PeerWell's mental health program.
I am here to answer any questions you have about weight loss, diets, becoming a doctor, opening your own practice and whatever else I can help with. AMA!
I can give general information on medical conditions here, but I can’t give specific medical advice nor can I make a diagnosis.
