Weight Management

What is Weight Management?

Our comprehensive medically supervised weight loss program has over 35 years of clinical expertise backed by scientific research and patient success stories. The program involves a unique “5 pillars of weight loss approach.”

Pillar 1 – Realization (Initial Visit)

This comes in two forms. Clients seeking help due to an awareness of their obesity or the physician/healthcare practitioner becomes aware of their obesity. Awareness is key! Clients are referred to our program by physicians or health care practitioners where we customize a weight loss plan that works best for them.

Required Diagnostic Testing Includes:

Pillar 2 – Motivation

  • Patient-Specific Meal Plan
  • Clinically proven meal replacements
  • Food Log
  • “The Thinderella Syndrome” book by Dennis Gage MD
