There is no quick fix for weight loss. If one existed, or if primary care doctors had the time in a typical visit to address the complexities of weight gain, then our country would not be experiencing an obesity epidemic.
We made the decision not to work with insurance companies so that we can spend extra time with patients. Our goal is to develop a meaningful relationship with each patient, this requires review periods before and during their visits to understand the complexities of their medical history, medications, and previous struggles with diet and weight loss.
I will be your doctor, mentor, support system, and health coach.
Reaching weight loss success involves so much more than prescribing a diet and medication; it requires an individualized approach with continuous coaching and support. With so many causes of weight gain, a 5-10-minute office visit will not allow me to get to the root of your problem, address medical issues or create an effective weight-loss plan.
An initial office visit is very comprehensive and is 45 minutes in length.
Losing just 5% of body weight will significantly reduce a patient’s risk of many diseases, such as high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol and triglycerides, fatty liver diseases (currently the most common cause of cirrhosis in the US), type 2 diabetes, arthritis of the knees, hips and hands, heart disease and many forms of cancer.
