Physicians who specialize in the medically assisting their patients with weight loss for obesity and metabolic disorders practice in a field called “bariatrics.” Sometimes called bariatricians or bariatric specialists, we have several as part of BASS Medical Group and they are here to help you when traditional efforts (self- or community-managed) to lose weight through diet and exercise are not working and when excess weight has become a serious concern.
