From the several procedures we offer to our tailored non-surgical medical weight management programs, our practice offers the very best in safe, effective, long term solutions for regaining your health and becoming part of your life again.
We know that excess weight is not a cosmetic flaw to be dealt with for just aesthetic purposes. Obesity is a disease that deserves careful and effective treatment. Excess weight can not only hold you back from experiences and enjoying your life, it has also been proven a risk factor for several forms of cancer, heart disease, obstructive sleep apnea, stroke, type II diabetes, and reflux disease, among other conditions.
Your weight doesn’t define you and there are options available if you find that your past efforts in battling your weight on your own haven’t lead you to success, or the weight came back when the diet was over, and maybe even more than you had lost. Our team can help you better understand why your body struggles to lose the excess weight and how to truly change your life.
Take Your First Step
When you’re ready to take the first step towards a healthier life, we are here to help guide you there. The first step in a surgical journey is to complete our information session either online or attend an in person event. Both options are free and no obligation to you. We will collect your information to verify that your insurance policy contains a bariatric benefit. If you do not have coverage or wish to proceed without using insurance, we will talk you through all of your self pay options should you be interested in learning more.
