Bakersfield, CA (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
Dr. Jan Trobisch, Internist and founder of Synergy Lifestyle Center, a Bakersfield, CA medical weight loss facility is celebrating one year as a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP).
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, among adults in California age 18 and over, 60.7% were overweight, with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25 or greater. 24% of adults were considered medically obese with a BMI of 30 or greater.
Dr. Trobisch joins an elite membership list of 1,600 of the best obesity medicine colleagues who have made a commitment to be part of a collective voice fighting, treating, and absolving obesity as a nationwide epidemic. To maintain membership in the ASBP physicians must be in good standing with the community.
“As a doctor, it’s in my nature to be a part of the solution,” said Dr. Jan Trobisch. “For much of California, including Bakersfield, the issue of obesity is very sensitive. It’s a real disease that affects real people. Many people think if it’s just 10 or 20 pounds they can do it on their own, but without proper guidance you can make a lot of mistakes that can have real impacts to our body. At Synergy, we handle these matters delicately, under the guidance of a licensed medical doctor and we treat patients with evidence-based medical treatments.”
The ASBP is one of the leading networking organizations connecting physicians together in helping to conduct new research, influence public policy, and set new precedent within the medical community with updates on new advances in weight loss medicine and exclusive access to attend their conferences to learn about the newest advances in medical weight loss.
