Medical Mondays – Malti Vij, MD, on Primary Care and Weight Loss

It’s medical Mondays with UC health. Today we’re talking with Dr. Malti Vij, a primary care physician at UC health.

Dr. Vij, you’re a primary care physician board certified in internal medicine and obesity medicine. How is seeing an expert such as yourself, a benefit for adults interested in losing weight?

Being dually trained in internal medicine and weight management, it gives me a unique opportunity to help patients struggling with weight loss. I can, not only help them with managing their chronic medical condition, but also take care of their weight loss issues as well.

As part of the region’s adult academic medical center, you’re at the forefront of innovative care. What advances in primary care are you most excited about?

The focus on preventative care. We can, not only screen patients for chronic medical conditions, we can also screen them for deadly cancers. That gives us an opportunity to treat them at an early stage and reduce suffering.
