Bariatric Medicine

Our center differs from basic commercial weight loss programs. Each patient is fully evaluated by the M.D. at each and every visit. Programs are tailored and changed according to the needs and progress of each patient. Patients are screened for insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, thyroid and adrenal disorders as well as many other health conditions and diseases.

We Will Succeed!

I understand why some patients can’t lose weight and can’t keep the weight off. I can help you with factors outside of your control that prevent weight loss! Together we will succeed! Dr. Barbara Pacholec.


In January 2011, I began Dr. Pacholec?s weight loss center, this was required by my health insurance to qualify for weight loss surgery. I felt old, tired and unhealthy because of my weight and had made the decision to have surgery. I have tried other programs over the years and none were as successful as this program.

I have shrunk from a size 26 to a size 12 and am still shrinking. I am no longer on blood pressure medicine, I have energy, I now run up the steps I wouldn?t even walk up before. I feel younger and people tell me I look GREAT!

I would recommend Central Pasco Weight Loss Center to anyone who wants to lose weight. Dr. Pacholec and her staff are wonderful and very supportive. I am still losing and thank Dr. Pacholec and her staff for making it all possible. They have saved my life.

Thank you all so much, 2011
