About Us

The Comprehensive Center for Weight Loss offers a wide variety of weight loss options, both surgical and non-surgical treatment plans to include: laparoscopic gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, duodenal switch, gastric balloon, gastric banding, and other minimally-invasive procedures. The operations performed by our specialized physicians are safe, the outcomes reliable, and most importantly, the health and lives of our patients are vastly improved.

Dr. David Thomas is our medical director and lead surgeon. He is committed to performing bariatric surgery because of the positive impact it has on individuals. He has witnessed remarkable outcomes following bariatric surgery, including: diabetes cured, high blood pressure resolved, and obstructive sleep apnea gone. Patients who once struggled to walk down the block, are running half-marathons. Parents and grandparents who once facd difficulties playing with their children and grandchildren have vastly improved lives from bariatric surgery. Now these same parents and grandparents are able to walk, run and play with their families. If you are considering entering into a weight loss program to improve your health and lifestyle, Dr. Thomas encourages you to not wait. Please call our office for an appointment.

“What I like most about being a bariatric surgeon is the ability to change people's life in a dramatic and meaningful way. Bariatric surgery allows people to be more active and participate with their family in ways they couldn't prior to weight loss.” –Dr. David Thomas
