Enrica Basilico, M.D.


Enrica Basilico, MD is the Medical Director of Swedish Weight Loss Services. Dr Basilico is board certified in both obesity medicine and internal medicine. She graduated from NYU after completing her training in Primary Care in a program which focused heavily on doctor patient communication. 

During her internal medicine practice, she became drawn to the treatment of obesity which she saw affecting so many other aspects of her patient’s health and wellbeing. This interest led her to become a diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine in 2018 and to focusing on obesity medicine fulltime in 2020. She works with her patients to effectively address the strong forces that promote weight gain. Her evidence-based approach focuses on addressing the biological factors affecting a person’s metabolism, developing new sustainable habits, and creating plans that our tailored specifically to the individual. 

Since her time here in Seattle she has built a strong network of like-minded providers who are also committed to treating metabolic disorders and together they have connected to create a more formal forum for information sharing which is the Washington Obesity Society.
