New York House Call Physicians are medical doctors trained in the evaluation and medical management of over-weight and obese patients (bariatric medicine).
Thorough laboratory testing is used to exclude "physical" or organic causes of weight gain (e.g. thyroid disorders). Diet and weight loss plans are then individualized to each patient. Nutritional supplements & appetite suppressants are dispensed or prescribed as needed with close medical doctor follow-up.
We can quickly and safely treat patients needing to lose anywhere from a "few pounds" for summer or social occasions to obese patients at risk for the medical complications of obesity like diabetes and high blood pressure. This can happen in your home or our office.
