ABSTRACT
The article explains that a small percentage of doctors accurately record the overweight issues of their patients, which leads the author to believe that these doctors also neglect to urge their patients to lose weight. The article claims that patients who discuss their weight issues with a doctor are more likely to begin a weight loss plan, which therefore makes the role of the doctor critical.
