Since 2010, Dr. Francis. H. Vala, MD, an expert in medical weight loss, has been helping people lose weight effectively and safely and to keep it off long term.
Dr. Vala is driven by a passion to improve people's quality of life. Frustrated by the inadequate standards of obesity treatment administered by most commercial weight loss programs, Dr. Vala spent years researching and developing his bariatric program, and has dedicated the rest of his career to the management of obesity and related chronic diseases.
Dr. Vala graduated from the Department of Family Medicine at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 2005. In 2010, he continued training in Bariatric Medicine (Obesity Medicine) in USA. In 2014, he completed a fellowship program and Board Certification from the American Board of Obesity Medicine. He is a member of the BC College of Family Physicians (CFPC), the Canadian Association of Bariatric Physicians (CABPS), Canadian Obesity Network (CON), and the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP).
Dr. Vala has 19 years experience in general medicine, and 7 years in obesity medicine (since 2010). He is disappointed with the inadequate standards for the treatment of obesity, and wants to focus on treating the underlying problem causing health issues as opposed to treating the symptoms. Therefore, he is shifting the focus of his practice from cure, to prevention and education. Dr. Vala is also serving on the UBC faculty as a Clinical Assistant Professor.
