We focus on the different elements of weight loss, including diagnosis, health management, diet, lifestyle and behavior changes, exercise and education.
Our team-based approach offers the best quality care to help our patients reach their weight loss and health improvement goals.
Obesity Related Health Diagnosis
Before you start a weight-loss program, it’s crucial to identify and create a treatment plan for any obesity related illnesses or diseases. Specifically, we offer lab testing to identify metabolic related issues that may lead to weight gain.
Many other common health issues are related to or caused by obesity. These issues may be managed by our family medical team, or we may offer a referral to an outside specialist.
Common Obesity Related Health Issues
- Hypertension or High Blood Pressure
- High Cholesterol, Kidney Disease and Liver Disease
- Heart Disease and Stroke
- Breathing Problems like Sleep Apnea and Asthma
- Joint Pain and Damage
Medical Weight Loss
We support patients on a medical weight loss plan, including medication and post-surgery support. Our goal is long-term weight control for our patients that leads to better health and improved quality of life. We believe the best way to experience long-term weight loss is with lifestyle, diet and exercise changes. However, in some cases medication or surgery are necessary parts of the treatment plan.
