Our 'Personal' Family Story 
with the Disease of Obesity

We have a problem in our society. Obesity and those who suffer from this disease are the last group our society is yet to make some type of effort to protect. Even the medical community has done a poor job.

We are on a mission to change this.

People are not obese. There are only those who suffer from obesity.
Obesity it not your identity. Yet, maybe for many years, it’s felt like it.
‘Yeah… but Dr. Patching, you have never personally suffered from obesity.’

If you say this because my BMI has never reflected this…Well, you would be right.
If you say this because I haven’t ever felt trapped in my own body…Well, you would be right again.
But, you would be wrong, if you said I have not been affected by obesity.

I lost one of the closest members of my family to complications of this disease.
Yet, I run one of the longest standing Bariatric Practices in Northern California.
How is that possible you ask?

misc image

Well, not all of us learn a very important thing in time…
You are worth the fight.
You are worth all that it takes to regain your life.
You are worth every single person’s time and energy around you to regain control of your life.
But, the decision is only yours, it's solely up to you.
It belongs to no one else.   

Our family lost a brother, an uncle, a son, a father… about 30 years early.
Because he didn’t ever internalize one simple fact:
He was worth it.

Why is the journey worth it

Questions & Answers

Explore the most commonly asked questions by prospective Bariatric Patients. Check out how you might be the perfect fit for our program.

Who is this program for?

Anyone with a 30+ BMI and who wants to regain their health and transform their life.                                                                                                                   

Why is chosing the correct Bariatric Program so key to your success?

There are drastic differences of results between each Bariatric Program. It is absolutely imperative you pick a program that supports every important aspect of bariatric care: Behavior, Nutrition, Sleep, Exercise, Preparation, etc… Do not go to any program that doesn’t give you their outcomes (Independently reviewed).

When is Bariatric Care necessary? 

Bariatric Care is the only proven cure for people suffering from the disease of morbid obesity. We still recommend on trying to reach your health goals without bariatric surgery first. However, research has shown for decades that you can not conquer the disease with just diet & exercise alone. Diet & exercise alone only yields a 2-3% long term success rate. But if you combine healthier eating with increased exercise with bariatric surgery, we have a 95% success rate.

When is Bariatric Care not necessary? 

If your BMI is 30 or lower and do not have one of the listed health conditions: hypertension, sleep apnea, or diabetes. Also, if you do have a 30+ BMI with one of the listed health conditions but you have not tried other approaches, you should partner with your doctor or integrated health specialist first. Or you can request a consultation with us and we can give you the best path forward to help you find the care you need.

Why should I pick your Bariatric Program?

Our team has a combined 60+ years working in Bariatrics and integrated health approaches. We have a 4.8 star rating on Google. We have been independently verified by ASMBS and hold the highest rating possible for Bariatric Centers: Bariatric Center of Excellence. 5 years after patients begin our program they have lost 80% of their excess weight but even more importantly have kept it off.

What will I learn during the program?

Create sustained behavior changes, you will learn how to create a healthy relationship with food, exercise, sleep, and ultimately yourself. You will learn how to create sustained behavior change that leads to lifelong success and happiness.

How long will it take to see results?

Our program is designed so you start seeing results much quicker than other programs. If you are committed you will start seeing results weeks after starting. You will start building momentum, and confidence towards your goals. But, this program is not right for you if you are looking for a quick fix. There is no quick fix for morbid obesity, but if you follow our guidance, our program has a 95% success rate.

What about after the program is over, can I have lifetime access?

We had so many patients tell us they wanted to continue after they were done with the program. Because we received so much demand we developed a supportive care plan for those that want to continue. Once you complete the program, you can still receive care from Dr. Patching, support from your peers, and jump into support groups when you feel like you need some support all for a nominal monthly fee. Completely your choice.

Ok, what do I do next if I want to start?

Click the 'Request Consultation,' button below, or even better pick up the phone and give us a call. We developed a group Bariatric Seminar where Dr. Patching goes over the process, educates on your options, and answers all of your questions. We do this in an intimate, comfortable setting where it is all about you learning about your options.

Are you still hesitant about Bariatric Care?

We feel this Harvard Doctor sums it up the best...

"I see Patients with a BMI of 50, and invariably I will say, 'You're a candidate for everything - medication, diet, exercise and surgery.' And many tell me, 'Don't talk to me about surgery. I don't want it.' They don't want a surgical solution to what society has told them is a failure of willpower," she said.

"We don't torture people who have heart disease: 'Oh, it's because you ate all that fast food.' We don't torture people with diabetes: 'Oh, it's because you ate all that cake.' We tell them they have a disease, and we treat it. Obesity is a disease, too, yet we torture people with obesity by telling them it's their fault."
-Dr. Carol Apovian
