Dr. Yoni Freedhoff MD, CCFP graduated with honours from the University of Toronto medical school where he received the Betty Stewart Sisam award, given to the graduating student who, "has shown the greatest human understanding and care for the welfare and health of patients".
Very early in his medical career Dr. Freedhoff realized that the medical community, himself included, was not adequately managing obesity. Though many patients requested weight-loss advice he had very little to offer as the management of obesity is simply not taught during medical school or during medical residency.
Consequently, Dr. Freedhoff pursued training from the American Board of Bariatric Medicine (ABBM), the only medical organization in North America to offer certification in Bariatric medicine, and in March of 2005 he became one of only three physicians in Canada to be board certified by the ABBM. In 2007 the Canadian Obesity Network recognized him as a national obesity expert and in 2010 he served as their Family Medicine Chair.
