We're Closing -- and want to Thank You!
Thank you, Salisbury & Delmarva, for 8 years of helping patients lose weight and feel great!
Dr. Gail Anderson still invites you to Lose Weight, Feel Great – and keep Pounds Gone for Good! While she is closing her practice to retire after the close of business (5:00 PM EDT) on July 20, 2018, she wishes you, her patients, friends, and Delmarva neighbors well on your journeys to better health. This was her passion and her purpose.
The following is an excerpt from the letter written by Gail C. S. Anderson, M.D., P.A., and Dr. Gail Anderson to her patients, and mailed to all of them by June 1, 2018. The letter also lists options for patients of the practice to receive weight management care after the practice closes. If you are or were a patient of Dr. Anderson but did not receive your copy of this letter, you may call for a duplicate copy. We regret that we are NOT able to provide those options to members of the public.
"I regret to inform you that effective 5:00 PM on July 20, 2018, Gail C. S. Anderson, M.D., P.A. (“P.A.”) and I are closing our practice due to my retirement... I will no longer be available to take care of your medical needs after that date.
The P.A. will retain your medical records for at least six years from your last visit before being properly destroyed. You may obtain a copy of your records or authorize us to send your records to a new physician or nurse practitioner of your choice. In accordance with Maryland law, there may be a fee to make copies of your chart to cover copy and related (postage, etc.) costs. If you choose to pick up the copy of your record so that you may personally take it to your new clinician, please make an advance request and pick it up by July 20, 2018. After July 20, 2018, your records will continue to be retained at this location until about the time we sell or rent this office. You may call (410) 341-0005 to request a release form and information about any costs, both of which will be available in the near future. We expect to retain that phone number for as long as we must retain records; however, if that does not work.. you may call 410-726-7668." Further details about record retention and availability may be found in the letter; patients and former patients may also call the listed phone number to receive a duplicate copy of the letter that was already mailed to all current and former patients."
MEDICAL RECORDS will be retained as above. Please see the details in the paragraph immediately above.
We are NO longer accepting new patients. HOWEVER, our non-medical Better Bar Plan remains available until July 18, 2018. Please see the menu to navigate to the page describing that option, or call our phone number below.

Dr. Gail Knows and Understands
Your weight and your health will be in the knowledgeable, caring hands of Gail C.S. Anderson, M.D., a Diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine. Dr. Gail is intensively involved in each patient’s care (not just a Medical Director whom you barely see, if at all); she will treat you as she likes to be treated. Dr. Gail’s only focus is weight management: from careful evaluation and diet selection based on your individual needs, through your weight loss and beyond to maintenance, Dr. Gail and her team is with you every step of the way.
For Dr. Gail, it’s professional -- and personal! During 25 years in radiation oncology (over 15 here in Salisbury), Dr. Gail despaired of seeing many of her cured cancer patients later suffer or die from chronic diseases. She learned that avoiding excess weight may be the single most important factor in improving longevity. Dr. Anderson felt compelled to “practice what she preached,” so she dropped over 50 pounds, a loss she’s maintained for over 10 years.
Her interest in weight management grew from a concern to her medical hobby and then to her passion. She realized that she’d rather work to prevent disease than need to treat it. She studied the new field of obesity medicine intensively (and earned certification as a Diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine). Then she and her husband rehabbed an office into a bright, cheery space that can’t help but make you smile.
Since 2011, Dr. Gail has been helping patients lose weight, feel great, and keep pounds gone for good. Now it’s your turn to benefit from her knowledge, caring and experience.
Our program is:
• Medically Supervised • Comprehensive • Personalized
Research shows: Previous failure does not mean you can’t succeed. We know how to help!
Free Information Session
Free information sessions are regularly held at our Salisbury office. Please give us a call today to reserve your seat and see how our weight loss program can work for you.
Losing just 10-12% of your weight may significantly lower your blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels. Many patients reduce – or stop – their medications.
Attending a Free Information Session is the best way to learn what we offer:
