Manners Matter

Dr. Michael Feiz, a board certified bariatric weight loss surgeon, commented that the NY Post story about a man who, based on the photos, may be suffering from health issues associated with obesity, should have been written about with a bit more sensitivity, regardless of political opinion.

Obesity is a complex illness which should be responded to with care and consideration, not vilification notes Dr. Feiz. Surgical weight loss procedures such as the gastric sleeve can help an obese person return to a safe healthy weight.
