About

We understand weight loss surgery is not the right solution for everyone. Our medical weight loss program is designed for those who prefer a non-surgical option and for those who need to lose weight prior to surgery. Our program is designed to assist participants in losing excess weight quickly and safely.

The program is designed to help you achieve your goal weight by learning how to make healthy lifestyle changes. Our goal is for you to have a life that includes healthy eating and exercise. As a bonus, you will likely reduce your risk of medical conditions associated with obesity, such as cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, hypertension and elevated cholesterol.
