Patient Testimonials

They took the time to ask about my past weight loss experiences. Dr. Abbate listened to my thoughts on the medication his was prescribing and made recommendations based on my previous experiences. It was a very relaxed and quick process. Jonna J.

Dr. Abbate is very interested in weight loss, charting progress, giving tips and smiling while he sees the progress of his patients. In my experience he has a positive attitude, a good-natured way with explaining procedures, and takes time to check in with me every visit – something, not all doctors do in this day and age! I would suggest going to him if you want to lose the weight and don’t want to feel deprived or anxious. Red M.

I have been coming to Dr. Abbate for over a year and he is amazing. He has helped me lose over 40lbs and keep it off. His entire staff is so wonderful and pleasant. I love coming in everyone makes me feel so comfortable. Jessica R.


Sure, extra weight is annoying, even embarrassing. But it’s what that extra weight is doing to your body that is the real long-term problem.

Let’s face it, obesity is not something that most of us can overcome on our own. Eating less and exercising more isn’t enough. Obesity is a complex disease of multiple interlocking aspects which inevitably causes more health issues. 

That’s why you need an obesity medicine clinician, they treat obesity using a comprehensive approach.
