My name is Anil Date. I grew up in sunny Southern California in the city of Santa Clarita. My youth is filled of fond memories of going to the beach with my family (mom, dad, younger brother) and playing basketball. I’ve wanted to become a physician since the eighth grade (age 13), after attending a graduation party for a family friend. He was graduating from medical school. I looked up to him and told myself, “ I want to be like him”. Since then, I have had tunnel vision regarding my goal of becoming a doctor.
This vision has taken me on an unforgettable journey. After graduation from University of Califfornia, Riverside in 2002, I attended Ross University in Dominica (a Caribbean medical school). I was on the island for two years and finished the last two years of medical school in New York City (in various hospitals located in Queens and Brooklyn). For residency, I completed three years of internal medicine at Flushing Hospital Medical Center (located in Queens, NY). After that, I completed a fellowship year in geriatrics at the same hospital. Upon completion of training (residency + fellowship), I migrated to the west coast and began hospital work in Arizona (Lake Havusu and Tucson). The next step was home: Southern California. Being back in Los Angeles since 2013, I continued hospital work. In 2018, I opened a private practice. Currently, I do both inpatient (hospital) and outpatient medicine.
Along the path, I notice that obesity is a common problem many Americans face. This is due to a multitude of reasons – education, motivation, genetics, environment, etc; As a primary care physician, I found it imperative that I motivate patients to be their best and encourage weight loss through diet and exercise. Every patient is unique in what motivates them, along with different medical issues they face. Therefore, it important to counsel them individually and create a regimen for them in effort to lose weight. Medications play in important role as well. I’m excited to help you along with his journey to achieve your goals. It will lead to confidence, better health, and overall happiness with yourself.
