At Tenet Florida Physician Services, we have helped hundreds of patients lose the weight necessary for them to live their healthiest lives possible. In fact, they are a testament to the good work we do to help people meet their weight loss goals and maintain a healthy weight thereafter. Some have had significant weight to lose in an effort to reverse the negative effects of obesity – such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and joint problems.
Being overweight or obese is not your fault. It’s not about a lack of willpower, and people often feel ashamed for not being able to successfully lose or control their weight. Obesity is a disease and must be treated by professionals specially trained in weight loss, or bariatrics.
In the stories below, you’ll meet others just like you, who have faced the same struggles and challenges that come with being overweight. Here you’ll learn how their lives were changed, thanks to the bariatric specialists at Tenet Florida Physician Services.
