Overweight & Obesity Treatment 

Did you know that almost 70 percent of American adults are considered overweight or obese? Moreover, 90 percent of people who lose a significant amount of weight eventually gain some or all of it back. It’s not easy to lose weight, and it’s even harder to keep it off. Part of this is due to the fact that the billion-dollar weight loss industry is full of quick fixes and gimmicks - some of which can be hazardous to health. 

Obese and overweight patients who want to lose weight in a safe, healthy and sustainable manner are most successful when they work with a board-certified physician. Drawing from training in medical school and clinical experience, Dr. Bartolomucci and physician assistant Rebecca Bartolomucci provide customized weight loss counseling that gets results. Schedule a consultation with us today to get started on your journey to a healthy weight!
