Medical Management Program This is a
six-month "non-surgical" approach to weight loss and for patients who
either do not meet all of the criteria necessary to qualify for surgery. Our goal
is to achieve weight loss through exercise, education, support and life-long
modification of eating habits.
Behavioral Management Program Our board-certified psychologists provide a safe, supportive environment that
helps you recognize eating patterns and make behavior modifications to achieve
weight loss through a tailored and individualized approach.
Evidence shows that people who lose weight gradually and steadily (about 1 to 2 pounds
per week) are more successful at keeping weight off. And, people who have maintained significant
weight loss report improvements in not only their overall physical health, but
also their energy levels, mobility, general mood, and self-confidence.
Losing weight is not easy, and it takes commitment. And, that's why our weight loss experts are here for you everyday!
