Medical Weight Loss

We understand surgery isn't for everyone. Our medical weight loss program is designed for those who prefer a non-surgical option and for those who need medical weight loss prior to surgery. These programs are not a quick route to weight loss but instead focus on making smart choices, recognizing individual eating habits and making changes to maintain a healthy weight. These programs include medically monitored visits with a nurse practitioner and a registered dietitian/lifestyle coach.

Programs include:

Rapid Weight Loss Program

Our newest program is designed to help you lose weight quickly and safely. It is based on a low glycemic index diet. Weekly visits will  keep you accountable and will allow us to support your weight loss efforts. You will receive a B12/lipotropic injection and weight loss medications (if appropriate). By following our program guidelines, you will be able to maintain your new weight using the tools you’ve acquired. Incorporating healthy eating with regular exercise will help you reach and maintain your desired weight.

Medical Weight Loss

This program is for patients desiring weight loss surgery but who must complete a six-week to six-month medical weight loss option required by many insurance companies.

Healthy Lifestyle Program

This is a 12-week program of weekly classes which provide:

  • extensive nutrition education taught by a registered dietitian
  • exercises to increase metabolism
  • emotional support from the program team

If you want to make healthy lifestyle changes and enjoy a group setting, this is the program for you.
