Excess body fat can be deadly, increasing the risk for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Removing excess body fat goes far beyond a slim physique to the promise of a lengthy and disease-free life. Our weight management program provides personal one-on-one weekly visits, including weight loss medications (important support in reducing appetite, promoting satiety, and enhancing fat burning) and a food diary to keep you on track and help you succeed.
