Our Story

The Doctor Weighs In started as a blog about obesity and weight loss in 2005. As years passed, TDWI began to add a cadre of wonderful writers, both regular and occasional contributors. The topics covered have expanded and we now cover all aspects of health care. Some of our most popular categories include: Exercise & Fitness, MedicinePhysicians, Psychology & Neurobiology, and Health Tech.

Our Founder

PPat Salber is a board certified internist and emergency physician who practiced at Kaiser Permanente until transitioning into a national executive position as the organization’s first Director of National Accounts. Over the course of her career, she has worked as a physician executive for a variety of healthcare organizations. Currently, she serves as a consultant to CMS and speaks and moderates at both national and international healthcare conferences. She also serves on advisory councils of global non-profits and companies such as CliniOps, a health technology startup that is developing cutting edge software to support clinical trials. She is a media partner to the Physician-Patient Alliance for Health and Safety (PPAHS). In addition to writing for TDWI and other healthcare blogs, Pat has published on a variety of topics in both peer-reviewed journals and trade publications. Her book, The Physician’s Guide to Intimate Partner Violence and Abuse, was one of the first books on the topic written specifically for health care professionals.

Our Writers & Contributors

We carefully curate our posts to be sure we are bringing you the best writers and the most credible sources. Many of our occasional contributors publish their work first on their own blog and then send it to us to reach a wider audience. We also publish guest posts from writers that meet the same high standards to which we hold our regular writers. Here is a list of our regular authors and contributors:
