Anthony Auriemma, M.D.

Inspire Award Winner-Anthony

Alexian Brothers Weight Loss Solutions
Chicago, IL

During his residency in Family Medicine, Dr. Auriemma saw patients suffer from diseases like diabetes, infertility, cancer and arthritis that were often the direct result of, or made worse by, obesity. Since then, he has made it his mission to help patients achieve long-term, significant weight loss in order to improve their health and enhance their quality of life.

Dr. Auriemma takes a unique approach to tackling the obesity epidemic: "As a bariatric physician, I am one of the few physicians that take patients off their medication, not start new ones. By attacking obesity with intensive behavior modification, dietary changes, exercise, and sometimes medication, we are often able to "cure" many chronic conditions. I am dedicated to helping patients lose weight in order to improve their health and enhance their quality of life."

Nominated by patient Maria Daniels from Elk Grove Village, IL, who calls Dr. Auriemma her "inspiration on this journey of discovery," she says he was a "beacon to follow" and will "lead you to be a better and healthier you."
