  • An article in the New York Times this week cited a study by the STOP Obesity Alliance, which found that physicians and patients often have difficutly communicating with each other about weight loss, both when it is necessary and how to go about it. 

     

    Specifically, only 39 percent of obese patients surveyed were told by a health care provider that they were obese. 


    How do you communicate with you physician or health care provider about your weight?  Is there open communication or is it a subject that is rarely broached?
