Welcome to Rochester Medical Weight Loss in Rochester NY
Dr. Gule Rana Masood
Who Am I, and Why Do I Do It?
Dr. Gule Rana Masood has always been passionate about weight loss and overall health. She is not only board certified in bariatrics from the American Board of Internal Medicine, but is also a diplomat of the American Board of Obesity Medicine (ABOM). As a result, Rochester Medical Weight Loss is the first Bariatric Board-Certified Physician-run center in Rochester New York.
Obesity in the U.S., with its epidemic tendencies, has increased exponentially over the years, currently affecting about seventy-eight million adults. It leads the nation as the main cause of adult onset diabetes and is the second cause of preventable death in the United States.
Obesity originates from several conditions such as genetics, stress, sleeping issues, hormonal imbalance, low activity levels, and unhealthy eating habits. It affects people in any stage of life, from early childhood to the elderly. Many chronic medical problems cannot be properly improved or cured until the patient achieves a healthy weight. Dr. Masood and her staff educates patients how to maintain a healthy weight by eating well, exercising often, and when necessary accepting medication.
