Medical Weight Loss

What is Medical Weight Loss?

It is a weight management program based upon medical factors that target the causes of obesity and weight gain, provide specific programs based on individual needs, and coordinate activities to promote optimal health benefits. Our staff of doctors and medical providers provide the treatment and guidance necessary for you to achieve your weight loss targets to maintain them for life.

The programs utilized by our medical staff are far different from commercial weight loss programs. We look at your metabolism and body composition as true indicators of weight loss and reveal how they interact with your body functions. This allows for a true evaluation of optimum weight loss progress and allows for individualized treatment – something other weight loss programs cannot do. In addition, medical weight loss is designed to help an individual with their own specific weight loss goals and reduce the risk of other serious medical conditions such as heart disease, high cholesterol and other lipid disorders, stroke, sleep apnea, and hypertension.

Is Medical Weight Loss Right for Me?

As your doctor is your most trusted medical provider, we include an annual examination for personal medical evaluation as well as determining your overall medical condition. If you have medical conditions including high blood sugar and hormonal imbalances that are contributing to your overall health and weight gain, we will recommend treatment that is personalized to your specific needs.

We encourage you to focus on the small individual goals every day. Goal setting is an important part of your ability to staying motivated to gain maximum benefit from your efforts. These goals should be simple, doable, and tracked every day or as often as you can. If you miss a day, make it a point to get back on track the next day. We also encourage you to establish short-term and long-term goals to keep you focused and on track for your best results. Everyone wants to lose lots of weight right away but short-term goals are essential for keeping you positive and motivated along the way. Building upon a healthier lifestyle requires a continued effort to develop habits that will stay with you forever.
