Meet Dr. Custer!

Severe obesity has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. This is a devastating disease, characterized by a progressive downward spiral of deteriorating health, social rejection, and shortened lifespan. Further, it affects over 1 in 20 people,  5% of the US population. If you are on of these 16 million people who suffer this affliction, we are here to offer hope.  Are you weary and frustrated with continued “failure” to reach a healthy weight? Do you see your hopes and dreams of the life you want slipping away? Feeling like there is no way out?  Rest assured, you are not alone. We understand, and are here to help. Central Ohio Bariatrics is dedicated to the treatment of severe obesity, and when you are ready to move forward and take charge of your destiny, we encourage you to explore with us the journey toward your new life.

"My interest in surgical treatment of obesity began very early in my training.  I was, and continue to be, truly amazed to see lives changed in such a dramatic way. Sharing the joy of a life transformed is an opportunity that I don’t take lightly, and I consider it a privilege to be involved in such a unique and exciting process.  Since completing training in 2001, I’ve placed special focus on surgical weight loss as an integral part of my practice, and as a result have worked with thousands of patients who are seeking to use this tool to achieve their life goals. Many lessons have been learned over the years, and this experience will be drawn upon to guide you through this process as we move forward together." 

"I understand that the task ahead may seem daunting, and will surely be full of new challenges. Considering weight loss surgery is a decision to be taken seriously.  This should only be pursued with a clear understanding of what lies ahead, as well as a solid commitment to do what it takes to succeed. We’ve had the joy of walking along side of hundreds of people over the years here at Forest Health, and will provide you all the resources you will need to achieve success.  Reaching your goals together will take a lot of hard work, discipline, and focus, but I can promise you that the reward will be a life that you may only have imagined possible. I would be honored to be part of your success story, and look forward to getting started together."
