Medical Weight Loss
The medical weight loss program is about results you’ll see and feel. There is no other comprehensive program on the market like it. With board-certified physicians supporting you every step of the way, you’ll lose weight safely. And you’ll learn how to keep it off. Our doctors have specialized training in bariatric medicine, and their goal is to make your weight loss journey as easy as possible with their guidance and expertise.
How It Works
First, we get to know you and your medical history. Our doctors are trained to understand all the factors that contribute to your unique weight loss challenges, including medical conditions and prescriptions that may play a role.
Your doctor will also conduct a body composition analysis, which measures the percentage of muscle, fat and water in your body as well as your resting metabolism. This helps your doctors understand your body’s makeup and to predict the amount of weight you may realistically be able to lose over time.
Next, you and your doctor will discuss your goals and attitudes.
- How much weight do you want to lose?
- What motivates you?
We offer lifestyle coaching to ensure that you stay on track. Your mind-set is important to your weight loss success.
Whether it’s 10 pounds or 100 pounds, the certified physicians of the medical weight loss program are here to help. Only a medical doctor can customize a plan based on your unique metabolism, hormonal disorders, medication, and other physical weight loss issues. Find out why so many are turning to medical weight loss for fast, safe, affordable weight loss.
Our medical doctors also work closely with our weight loss surgery team, for patients who need extra help to get the results they want.
