Struggling with extra weight that you can’t seem to lose no matter how hard you try?
The best solution for losing weight is usually a healthy diet combined with regular exercise.
Yet for many people this may not be enough.
There are many complex epigenetic, biochemical, emotional and behavioral issues that can make it difficult or even impossible for some people to lose weight. The good news is that when weight loss is considered in the context of a holistic understanding of your overall health and wellbeing, these complex issues can often easily be addressed using cutting-edge diagnostics and safe, natural, non-invasive and highly effective treatments.
Your support team in losing weight and living healthier will include Gwen Krieger, our certified nutritional therapist, and one of our physicians. Gwen and our physicians are well-acquainted with the complex issues that underlie difficulties in losing weight. And we have a passion for patient education and empowerment. Your appointments will give you more knowledge about how to achieve optimal health, allowing you to take charge of your own health and well-being.
Our thoughtful, compassionate, supportive approach to helping you to sustainably lose weight includes testing for underlying medical conditions with special attention given to improving energy, motivation and well-being, plans for healthy, satisfying meals, control of food cravings and do-able exercise plans.
All visits are either direct with the physician or are physician-supervised and hence are covered as regular office visits by most insurance plans.
