Dr. Aaron Wenzel, M.D.
Founder and CEO
As both a Family and Emergency Medicine Physician, Dr. Wenzel has seen firsthand the devastating effects obesity has had on thousands of his patients.
He founded Bariform on 2 principles: Educate and Empower — the keys to making real, life-long change.
As a professional student for nearly 15 years, he certainly understands the value of education. However, one of his guiding principles in life is that knowledge is NOT power — it is only potential power. He believes that it is only when knowledge leads us to take action that we experience power.
His passion is to see people to make powerful decisions that literally change their destiny.
Dr. Wenzel is committed to proactively treating the disease of obesity and restoring his patients’ joy and quality of life.
