About Our Practice
As the only physician in the country to be board-certified in Obesity Medicine and certified by the American College of Sports Medicine as a Clinical Exercise Specialist, Dr. Seltzer has a proven track record of helping people transform their lives for good.
Dr. Charles Seltzer, M.D.
After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts, Dr. Seltzer went on to study medicine at Jefferson Medical College, where he graduated as a Medical Doctor (M.D.). Dr. Seltzer worked as a Resident of Internal Medicine at Crozer Chester Medical Center, before ultimately choosing to open up his own practice.
Driven by his past personal struggles with weight and binge eating, Dr. Seltzer’s mission is to help others who want to improve their health. Unlike other weight loss physicians, Dr. Seltzer takes a 360 degree approach by evaluating and addressing all of the factors that contribute to suboptimal health, including medical problems and medications, sleep, stress, depression, food addiction, busy work schedules and social commitments.
Dr. Seltzer can not only help you identify what the problem is, but also determine a solution that you can maintain for the rest of your life.
