Dr. Alan Kessler

Dr. Alan Kessler, D.O.

Obesity Medicine


Dr. Kessler is the sole owner of Premier Weight Loss Center and a longtime resident of Kansas City, Missouri. Although Dr. Kessler continued his education and completed his residency at the University of Iowa, he always knew he would return home to practice medicine.

As one of the few doctors in the state of Kansas Board Certified by the American Board of Obesity Medicine, Dr. Kessler has a strong passion for weight loss medicine. Dr. Kessler stays ahead of weight loss medicine trends as a member of the Obesity Medicine Association to provide the best and most up-to-date care for his patients. His clerkship at the internationally recognized Medical Bariatrics of America gave him valuable insight into a proven program that yields exceptional results.

Dr. Kessler’s passion for bariatric medicine is personal. Experiencing obesity first-hand growing up, Dr. Kessler’s mission is to help as many people as possible release the grips of obesity and create long-lasting patterns of health and wellness. Knowing the disease personally, he believes obesity is caused by a combination of behavior, psychology, metabolism and/or nutrition and works with each of his patients to determine which of these issues could be the root of their obesity.

Dr. Kessler is a proud annual contributor to the Obesity Treatment Foundation, which advances Obesity treatment through clinical research and education.
