The Premier Gastroenterology medical weight loss program is administered by the most knowledgeable weight loss physicians and providers in the country. In addition to promoting weight loss, the program is proven to help men, women, and adolescents reduce or reverse medical conditions often caused by excess weight, such as: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high sugar levels (type 2 diabetes), poor digestion, poor mobility, joint pain, self-esteem or behavioral issues. In addition, associated medications are frequently reduced or eliminated.
As the percentage of Americans being overweight or obese continues to increase (now at 70% of the population) the adverse and far reaching effects of this chronic disease are becoming more apparent as it adversely affects almost every system in our bodies.
Excess weight contributes to, and worsens, the effects of GERD (Commonly referred to as reflux) making this condition much more difficult to treat and control. This can lead to heartburn, chest pain, pulmonary issues, swallowing difficulties and an increase in the risk of esophageal cancer.
These conditions along with Diabetes, Hypertension, and high Cholesterol continue to increase along with our obesity rates. Being overweight, without being obese, can also greatly increase your chance of serious illness and should be addressed as well. So…what can be done? The first step is to schedule an appointment to be evaluated by an experienced team of professionals who are experienced in weight management.
Premier Gastroenterology’s weight loss team consists of Dr. Steve Jones and Dr. Angelo Coppola, both of whom are board certified gastroenterologists with extensive experience in weight loss and registered Dietitian Betsy Day who has over 15 years of experience in nutritional and weight loss counseling. Both of our physicians are board certified Gastroenterologists, and Dr.Jones is board certified in Obesity Medicine and Anti-Aging.
