What questions should I ask a weight loss doctor?

There are four pillars of obesity:

  • Nutrition
  • Physical activity
  • Behavioral change
  • Pharmacology

Your weight loss doctor needs to be willing to use medication in the long term if necessary. They should be ready to combine medicine and continue prescribing it for maintenance.

If they aren’t of this mindset, they aren’t legit. Obesity is a chronic disease.

The Obesity Medicine Association’s website allows you to search for providers near you.
