Health care is really a misnomer. It is more about Sick care than Health care. Most physicians are trained to diagnose and treat disease and illness. Physicians are not taught disease prevention and most receive absolutely no nutritional education.

As a Bariatric Specialist, Dr. Thaxton has developed his own unique approach to weight loss and the many personal issues that accompany being overweight.

Being Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Thaxton had many patients ask him how to lose weight. Having no background into the real science of how to lose weight, Dr. Thaxton began his journey of medical research, learning, education,and training many years ago to address the concerns of his patients. He understands the challenges his patients face from his own experience in losing weight and keeping it off, as well as the many patients he has helped achieve their goals. He is convinced that prevention is far better intervention.

With his compassionate and inspirational guidance, you too can finally succeed your goal achieving balance and well-being. Why wait to look and feel your best?
