We appreciate and understand that weight loss and maintenance is a lifelong journey/struggle for many and we strive to make that journey a little easier for you. Our weight loss program is tailored to the needs of each individual patient since we believe “one size does not fit all.”
Our goal is to help patients with lifestyle changes in order to improve overall health and wellbeing. In fact, most chronic diseases have been shown to improve significantly with clinically meaningful and sustained improvement with weight loss and lifestyle changes.
The initial visit involves an extensive history and examination, including state of the art body composition analysis to evaluate the patient’s needs. Subsequent visits are geared towards behavioural therapy, nutritional therapy, and exercise recommendations. We will evaluate each patient and may discuss FDA approved weight loss medications as appropriate.
Patients may be both referred by their physicians or self referred.
