'Large Friendly' Primary Care Physicians in Tucson?

Hi all.

I'm new to Tucson, AZ (former East Coast resident).

I'm sorry for being repetitive (I'm sure this question has been asked before), but does anyone have a suggestion or three for a Primary Care physician that is 'large/heavy friendly'?

I would a 'moderate' physician that has knowledge of weight issues. I'd certainly like get weight loss surgery but my current insurance specifically has a disclaimer against ANY bariatric treatment or surgery (which REALLY stinks - not many 'heavy' people at my work, so no one really cares).

In any event, a doctor that is aware of weight-related issues and can help prep me for the eventual surgery would be great.

Preferably someone that doesn't look at me like I disgust them, but also not someone that thinks I can weigh any amount (too much, in this case) and still be healthy.

Thanks in advance for your collective help and nice to meet my fellow "Tucsonans" (? lol - no idea if that's even a thing! :-) ).
