She did her fellowship in Endocrinology and Metabolism at University at Buffalo and has been a consulting endocrinologist at Buffalo VA Medical Center, at Allegheny General hospital and at the Rochester Regional Health system before moving her practice and family to New Jersey in 2015.
Dr. Ritu Anand has witnessed remarkable results. As her patients lost weight, she has been able to decrease or eliminate diabetes medications, including insulin. Other patients have been able to improve their blood pressure, some eliminating medication altogether. Her patients also report improvement in heartburn and were able to decrease or stop heartburn medications completely, and so many other benefits that go along with weight loss.
