Weight Loss Physician & Internist located in Chesapeake, VA

About Dr. Chastanet

Rachel Chastanet, MD, brings more than three decades of experience to her practice at  Chesapeake Weight Loss & Aesthetics. Her passion for science-based, personalized care is just part of what makes her a leader in medically supervised weight loss, and a resource for the men and women of Chesapeake, Virginia, and the Hampton Roads area.

Dr. Chastanet began her educational journey at Pennsylvania State University in State College, where she was part of an accelerated BS/MD degree program. Upon completing her undergraduate studies, she went on to earn her MD from Thomas Jefferson University Medical College in Philadelphia. 

Her next step was a residency in internal and family medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School, an experience that allowed her to refine her hands-on patient care techniques. Dr. Chastanet’s commitment to lifelong learning is exemplified by her continuing board certification in Internal Medicine and her designation as a Fellow of the American College of Physicians. 

After serving as a physician for the United States Navy, Dr. Chastanet made the decision to focus her talents and efforts on medically supervised weight loss. She achieved board certification in Obesity Medicine in 2014. That choice was based on her firmly held belief in scientifically-backed weight loss tools and techniques that have the power to transform lives for the better. In a world filled with weight loss gimmicks and scams, she is passionate about giving men and women the skills and support they need to reach and maintain a healthy weight. 

Dr. Chastanet’s personal journey out of obesity also informs and shapes her practice. She understands the challenges of weight loss not just from a professional perspective, but also a deeply personal one. This allows her to connect with patients in a unique way. 

If you or a loved one is struggling with weight, please watch Dr. Chastanet’s 20-minute Medical Weight Loss Seminar to better understand her approach to weight loss and weight maintenance. You’ll learn more about your options, and why a scientific, patient-centered program is the best way to improve your overall health and wellness.
