Medical Weight Loss
What is medical weight loss?
We are excited that you are committed to improving your health and have invited our practice to be part of your journey. Our approach to medical weight loss is similar to that of other chronic diseases, like asthma or high blood pressure. Our weight loss treatment is tailored to your needs. We will be your partner in finding medical-based weight loss solutions that are right for you. We work with you to find the methods that fit your own desires, goals and capabilities. Let us take away the functional and metabolic health obstacles that prevent your body from responding optimally to your efforts. Break through your plateaus, your stuck spots in personal development and return to your best weight for you.
Our Weight Management Program addresses 4 main components:
There are 6 FDA-approved weight loss medications that can be utilized in our program:
- Orlistat (Xenical)
- Lorcaserin (Belviq)
- Phentermine/Topiramate (Qsymia)
- Naltrexone/Bupropion (Contrave)
- Liraglutide (Saxenda)
