Medallion Weight Loss was established in 1996 right here in Modesto. From the beginning, Dr Phyllis Schorr, MD became an active member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians. The clinic adheres to the guidelines established by the Society that have been successful for decades. The Society also keeps the clinic up to date on all the latest advances in medical weight loss.

Dr. Christel Backert joined the clinic in 2011 as Clinic Manager adding her unique skills and wonderful personality to our successful practice.


Your health and safety is our top concern here at Medallion. To limit the amount of people in the clinic at one time we have special guidelines that need to be followed.

Appointments are highly encouraged and will be given first priority. All new patients must have an appointment.

We are happy to announce walk-ins are once again welcome for current patients only. Walk-ins must wait outside or in their vehicle after check-in. You will be notified by text when to reenter the clinic. Walk-ins must be checked in 30 minutes prior to clinic close time. Walk-in wait times may vary greatly, appointments are highly encouraged.

We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and will post updates on hours and/or closures if the need arises.  Precautions are being taken for the safety of our patients, staff and the community in mind. 
Hours of Operation and Updates will be posted as needed.
