'Family By the Ton' Has Its Very Own (and Much Younger) Dr. Now


There's a new bariatric surgeon in town and his name is Dr. Charles Procter Jr. While My 600-lb Life has fan-favorite Dr. Younan Nowzaradan, aka Dr. Now, to guide his patients as they attempt to lose life-changing amounts of weight, Family By the Ton has introduced viewers to Dr. Procter. 

This season on the TLC reality series, the Georgia-based doctor will be working with the King family, particularly Amanda, who along with needing to lose weight, is also battling endometrial cancer — something she can't even attempt to fight unless she loses enough weight to undergo the life-saving surgery.
