Success rates for sustained weight reduction in our program is 90% or better.
Your evaluation starts with a Complete History and Physical Exam, including your BMI (Body Mass Index). We go even further with a Complete Metabolic Assessment including Blood Sugar, Chemistries, Liver and Kidney and Thyroid Function and other relevant Lab tests.
We first advise on eating smaller portions of your existing diet that is usually eaten instead of unrealistic diets.
We develop a tailored exercise regimen for each patient.
We prescribe medications that induce early satiety (feelings of being full) and reduce fat absorption with vitamin ADEK supplementation.
Patients who will benefit from Bariatric (Weight Reduction) surgery are referred promptly.
