Dr. Robert Skversky has been a doctor for more than 30 years, and a bariatric physician for the last 20?which means, in slightly less technical terms, that he currently specializes in treating obesity. He's quite good at it, too. He's appeared on The Today Show, Good Morning America, and The Dr. Oz Show, discussing his philosophy on long-term weight loss and maintenance.
At his office, Weight No More, he puts this talk into practice, crafting customized medical weight-loss plans for his patients. The plans eschew quick fixes, instead focusing on long-term regimens including combination drug therapy, exercise, and low-carb eating. This long-term focus aligns neatly with Dr. Skversky's core belief that obesity, like diabetes, is a chronic medical condition, and needs to be treated as one.
