A PHYSICIAN SUPERVISED MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM is the safest and most effective way to lose weight and keep it off. Our practice is unique in that all of the patient’s interactions are one on one with a physician. Our focus is on long term success. We will help you develop the skills and habits to successfully manage your weight in the future. We take time to understand your struggle and tailor the program to specifically meet your lifestyle.

Individualized weight loss programs tailored to fit your needs

At Physicians for Weight Loss we know that any program has to be individualized to work. There isn’t one diet or one weight loss program that works for everyone. We respect that every person has different physical, psychological, social, spiritual, and economic needs. We recognize that overweight and obesity are disease processes and are not the result of an individual’s weaknesses or lack of willpower. We believe that overweight and obese individuals have a right to comprehensive healthcare that is safe and addresses their unique and specific needs.

Whether you want to lose weight, minimize your risk for diabetes, heart disease or cancer, decrease your medication for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes, need to gain weight or want to improve your athletic performance, at Physicians for Weight Loss we have the expertise and knowledge to help you reach your goal. Our mission is to help each patient learn what their body needs in order to optimize their health.
