Dr Otto Puempel began practicing Family Medicine in a small office in central Arlington in 1963. He quickly saw a need in the medical field that had yet to be explored and streamlined his focus and commitment into the specialty of Obesity Medicine, also often called Bariatrics. Dr. Puempel has a passion for helping patients return to healthy living and remarks often that his patients teach him far more than he teaches them and enjoys visiting with some who still drop by just to catch up. Dr. Puempel soon realized there were more patients who needed help than he had time to give, so he expanded into a multi-site clinic with numerous physicians and practitioners to further the practice. Today, his son, Christopher Puempel, MD joins him in providing a safe, nurturing atmosphere for patients to get the assistance they need while continuously researching and exploring the latest treatment protocols and therapies to best meet the individual need of the patient.
