Can a provider at Idaho Weight Loss be my primary care provider?
We believe strongly in preventative medicine. That is why we specialize in directly treating the underlying causes of many chronic health issues – obesity and overweight. When necessary, we also treat conditions that are related to obesity and overweight, as treating those comorbid conditions can often improve weight loss results. But there are many conditions that should be screened for, treated, and monitored which are outside the scope of obesity medicine. We therefore ask that you continue routine follow-up with your primary care and specialty providers.
Over his thirteen years in Boise, Dr. Rader has contacted patients that do not stay active in the program for information as to why they did not stay active. Information obtained from these questionnaires is used to steadily improve the program. This information has proven invaluable because the percentage of follow-up visits has steadily increased and the average weight loss in each weight category has improved yearly.
