While any licensed physician can offer a medical weight loss program, Bariatric Physicians are uniquely equipped with specialized knowledge, tools and techniques to enable them to design medical weight loss programs tailored to the needs of individual patients and modify the programs, if needed, as the treatment progresses.
Bariatricians are trained to treat overweight and obesity and associated conditions. The Advanced Medical Weight Loss Augusta physician-directed programs offer strategies unavailable to non-physician weight loss programs. Dr. Paul Thaxtgon and his entire staff are committed to helping you lose weight quickly and safely, but most importantly, to helping you keep the weight off long term.
Why are our programs effective?
