Am I a candidate for Medical Weight Loss?​

Anyone with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or over can benefit from a medical weight loss program. Body mass index measures your body fat relative to your height and weight. Use our BMI calculator to see if a medical weight loss program may be right for you.

You may also be a candidate for this program if you are experiencing other weight-related conditions, such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes or sleep apnea. Learn more about these and other obesity-related conditions we treat.

 
What is Medical Weight Loss?

Unlike other weight loss programs, medical weight loss is not self-directed and patients should not self-treat this disease. Instead, a physician oversees all aspects of the plan. Your care teamwill include experts from the fields of medicine, nutrition, psychology, sleep therapy, and many others. This type of holistic program leads to better patient outcomes.

Our medical weight loss program includes components tailored to your specific needs.

 

These may include:

  • OPTIFAST™ meal replacement products

  • Weight loss medications

  • Ongoing behavioral therapy

  • Nutritional counseling

  • Personalized fitness advice

  • Tailored inventory of environmental or medical promoters of weight gain​

Our program features:

This medical management allows for advanced interventions, such as prescription weight loss medications. Your physician also will assess and treat possible medical causes for your weight gain.
