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.


Safety and wellness is our top concern here at Medallion.

We are currently only recieving patients by APPOINTMENT ONLY. To limit the amount of people arriving to the clinic at one time. Your health and safety is our primary concern. We hope to return to business as normal soon. 

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. Please adhere to the guidelines so we can be here to serve you.
Hours of Operation and Updates will be posted as needed.
