Dr. David Anderson
Dr. David Anderson sees the growing obesity epidemic as a health crisis and wants to do more to help. For nearly two decades as a family physician, he remembers always treating high blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol issues and realized that these medical problems were often related to excess weight. Since the number of Americans classified as overweight had grown to two-thirds of the population, he felt uniquely qualified to treat those suffering from severe health issues due to obesity or those just looking to lose 10–20 pounds.
The non-surgical, one-on-one physician-directed program at Annapolis Medical Weight Loss offers strategies unavailable through commercial programs. “With my primary care experience, I am often able to decrease or even discontinue medications during weight loss. My patients love that.” He communicates any changes with their other physicians. Using Body Composition technology, Dr. Anderson can accurately measure how many calories each patient burns in a day, and individually predict their amount and rate of weight loss over time. His caring and compassionate team helps guide and encourage each patient along their journey to better health.
