Make a Choice

Choosing to change your lifestyle and taking steps to become a healthier you is a big step to take, and we are here for you. You are choosing to make a commitment to yourself. The reasons that have brought you here are personal and unique to you, and whether they are for health reasons or to look and feel better, the door is now open.

Book Your Appointment

Your initial consultation is free and will determine if our program is right for you. We evaluate your current health status including medications, past medical history, and discuss your current goals. This is done with a no-pressure, non-judgmental, and straightforward visit.

Moving Forward

If you choose to move forward with our program, we will provide you with resources and support to get you started right away. Things like proven guides to help you make more informed choices, and tips for keeping yourself on track. Your initial consultation will be the longest. However, moving forward you can expect to be in and out of the clinic fairly quickly.


It's Personal

Weight loss is a personal and delicate subject. We provide a confidential one-on-one setting so you can choose the pace you are comfortable with and move forward with the support you need. We typically meet bi-weekly (at least initially) to monitor progress and discuss resources that will help make this journey successful.

It's Unique

There is no such thing as “One Size Fits All” when it comes to a successful weight loss journey. A medical weight loss solution needs to be designed specifically for you, the individual, so you can achieve the best possible weight loss results. Your story, your habits, your goals, your stresses, your health concerns or medical issues, make your journey unique, and we provide you the appropriate tools to make that journey successful.

What to Expect

We strive to achieve a warm and welcoming environment at our clinic. You will want to allow 45-50 minutes for your initial visit so we can go through your history, get the typical forms filled out, and view our educational videos. You will spend individual time with the doctor going over everything from your lifestyle to your health history. Patients will sometimes include a family member or friend on this initial visit and we support that choice. (We adhere to current COVID protocols, so please be sure that including another person is within the guidelines).

If there are no health obstacles that might prevent you from proceeding in a safe manner, the doctor will go over the program and how it will help you achieve your goals. Follow up visits are typically 5-10 minutes long and are every other week. Scheduling is easy and online. Once you are an established patient, you may simply walk in during clinic hours but please be prepared to wait a bit as appointments are encouraged and do come first.
