Why medical weight loss solutions are different from other plans

Our medical weight loss programs are overseen by a bariatrician (obesity medicine doctor) who will begin your care with a comprehensive clinical assessment, which includes body composition and metabolic evaluation. Your bariatrician will also assess your nutritional habits, behavioral health, and fitness level while also gaining an understanding of your personal health history, experience with weight gain and/or weight loss, and your primary concerns around weight management.

With a holistic view of your health condition, your lifestyle and behaviors, personal health goals and even your budget, the doctor will determine whether a conservative or intensive weight loss program is recommended, and will work with you to decide what aspects of the program will potentially deliver the best results for you, based on your needs. Your medical weight loss options may include:

  • Medical diets for weight loss: short-term, medically supervised low-calorie diet (LCD) or very low-calorie diet (VLCD)
  • FDA-approved weight loss medications (when appropriate) that suppress appetite while stimulating metabolism
  • Exercise physiologist-directed physical activity and exercise plans
  • Educational classes and support groups
  • Psychological/emotional wellness counseling
