Robert Ziltzer, MD, FACP is a Board Certified Obesity Medicine Specialist at Scottsdale Weight Loss Center in Arizona. He is also Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, as well as a serial marathon runner. Dr. Ziltzer’s passion for serving as a medical weight loss doctor is born, in part, from his experience in treating people who suffered from obesity-related illnesses.

While treating these patients, Dr. Ziltzer observed the impact that weight loss had on these medical conditions, as well on the confidence and self esteem of his patients.
In 1995, Dr. Ziltzer committed to specializing in medical weight loss. He is board certified by The American Board of Bariatric Medicine and a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians and the Obesity Society.
