Red Mountain Weight Loss is the leader in Medical Weight Loss, providing expert care under the direction of our Bariatric Physicians.
Medical Director and Founder, Dr. Suzanne Bentz, has practiced medicine for over 20 years, pursuing a lifelong passion of helping patients lose weight. She is Board Certified by the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, and strongly believes that a physician is most qualified to help patients achieve safe and effective weight loss. Dr. Bentz leads a team of talented medical professionals, who have also received advanced training in Medical Weight Loss.
Dr. Bentz attended Texas Christian University, where she studied nutrition/health science. She received her D.O. degree in 1993 from North Texas Health Science Center. In 1993, she started Red Mountain Family Medicine. Many of her patients required treatment for conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, all related to obesity.
With a passion to further help her patients, she became Board Certified in Bariatric Medicine in 1997, further specializing in the treatment of obesity and related diseases. This led to the decision to open Red Mountain Weight Loss (and affiliate Tucson Medical Weight Loss) offices throughout Arizona.
