When it comes to obesity or weight loss medication, there is a certain gap that exists in the current healthcare landscape. The number of physicians who are currently practicing in this field is nearly not enough to bridge the gap. In 2013, the American Medical Association officially labeled obesity as a disease. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has now approved semaglutide injections to help adults with chronic weight management due to obesity or being overweight.
Dr. Chioma Okafor-Mbah has been certified by the American Board of Obesity Medicine (ABOM) as an ABOM diplomate. Being an ABOM diplomate means she has undergone rigorous training and examination for obesity medicine and has now achieved this designation. She has specialized knowledge in obesity medicine and has been recognized for her competency in obesity care. With over 15 years of experience, Dr. Chioma now has her own virtual medical weight loss program and prescribes FDA-approved medication to her patients.
A spokesperson for Dr. Chioma Okafor-Mbah stated, “Dr. Chioma has been recognized by the American Board of Obesity Medicine for her years of experience and distinguished knowledge. She has been helping many patients who have been worried about their weight. Dr. Chioma Okafor-Mbah takes her time to understand each patient’s struggles and is interested in learning more about their experience.
