Medical weight loss
Our physicians are certified in medical weight loss treatments with the use of appetite suppressants. But its not how our office works.
During the last 24 years there has been a dramatic increase in obesity in United States. We have increased our portion size, increased calorie intake in our snacks, we are eating out or ordering 200% more compared to 1985.
All the above are the reasons for the increase in strokes, heart attacks, early age onset of high levels of Cholesterol, High blood pressure, Diabetes type II, high incident of breast, prostate and colon cancers.
Thats why our doctors are here to provide you with a full nutritional education. This counseling helps us set up a specific plan for a sensible weight loss where you will be able to loose and maintain the desirable weight.
Medical supervision in our practice is very important to patients. During the monthly visits we go over the progress of the treatment, counseling on exercise, diets, supplements, and pharmacological agents that are used with the weight loss programs.
