What is Obesity Medicine?

Obesity is the most common chronic disorder of our time. Both Dr. Garza and Dr. Cobos recognize it to be a disease caused by multiple, complex factors, including genetics and the environment, not merely a consequence excess calories and lack of exercise.

Obesity Medicine is the medical specialty that centers on preventing, treating, and reversing obesity. Physicians practicing obesity medicine provide evidence-based treatment that is individualized to each patient and combines nutrition, physical activity, behavior change, and medication.

Dr. Garza and Dr. Cobos are trained to treat obesity and are Diplomates of the American Board of Obesity Medicine.
