Why Obesity Medicine?

Dr. Dishler become aware early on in her private practice that carrying extra weight was impacting almost every aspect of her patients’ physical health.  She went to medical school as a result of a passion for fitness, optimal health, and human physiology that blossomed at the age of 15.

After medical school she became frustrated at working to manage and “fix” patients’ chronic medical problems, realizing that if weight, physical fitness, and nutrition had been addressed early on for these patients that many of these problems could have been completely avoided or minimized.

Dr. Dishler also learned that by giving her patients the knowledge and tools to manage their weight at ANY stage of illness, she was able to dramatically improve her patients’ health and happiness.

After 15 years in primary care, Dr. Dishler decided to become proficient in the field of Obesity Medicine. She is now devoting herself entirely to helping patients lose weight, maintain their weight loss, and understand how their nutrition and fitness will improve and prevent illness and disease.

Dr. Dishler works with your lifestyle to create a weight loss program that is easy, acceptable and manageable. She will support and counsel you through the entire process, empowering you to make changes toward sustainable results and dramatically improved health.

No fad diets or gimmicks involved, just good medicine.
