A Bariatrician is a licensed physician who is a member of the Society of Bariatric Physician (ASBP) and has received special training in bariatric medicine regarding overweight and obesity and its associated conditions.
A physician-supervised medical weight loss program may be the safest and wisest way to lose weight. Overweight and obesity is a very complex medical disease. A medical weight loss specialist has done extra study, training and testing to be a bariatric physician. They are trained to recognize complications due to obesity. They prescribe safe FDA approved appetite suppressants for patients who qualify. They also monitor drug interactions. These are only a few reasons why you want to see a medical professional when dealing with obesity
