Medically-Supervised Weight Loss

Struggling to reach your healthy weight?

Your weight loss journey isn’t just about looking better in your clothes. It’s about improving your overall health so you can enjoy life. Being overweight can also lead to many chronic health conditions including:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Increased Cancer Risk
  • High Cholesterol
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Joint Pain

Losing weight on your own can be challenging. Our medically supervised weight loss program aims to assist those struggling to be successful. The program’s protocols are clinically approved and supervised. Key components may include:

  • Your initial visit includes blood work and an EKG to measure heart health.
  • We will monitor important hormone and electrolyte levels to ensure they are optimal for weight loss.
  • Medication will be prescribed to help suppress appetite and/or make you feel fuller faster to support sustainable results.
  • You will have regular follow up visits (no appointment needed) to track weight loss, measure blood pressure, pulse rate, and body mass index (BMI), as well as monitor exercise and eating goals.
  • We provide guidance for caloric restrictions, exercise, and the benefits of balanced nutrition.

*Depending on your insurance plan, this program may be covered.

BMI Calculator & Healthy Weight Plan

There's no "perfect weight" that fits everyone. BMI, or body mass index, measures how healthy your weight is based on how tall you are. It gives you a clue to your risk for weight-related health problems.
