We are pleased to partner with you in your weight loss journey. Our team is knowledgeable in the causes of obesity as well as how to support the healthy changes that lead to long-term success and improved health.

Our Program

Our program includes up to 28 visits over the course of one year. The initial visit includes a comprehensive evaluation by our clinician team, followed by visits with your provider and your registered dietitian.

The majority of these visits will be with the dietitian and your provider will be checking in with you periodically. The schedule of visits includes:

  • A weekly face-to-face visit for the first month
  • A face-to-face visit every other week for months 2-6
  • A face-to-face visit monthly for months 7-12

You will meet a specific weight loss requirement to continue the program after the first six months, which we will discuss during your initial visit. During each visit we will cover key topics, such as nutrition, exercise and behavior modification. Your attendance for each visit is critical as research confirms that accountability and frequency of visits are key to weight loss success. We partner with you for the lifestyle modifications that will result in long-term health.

Our program is designed to help you meet your weight loss goals and support you in becoming healthier and happier. We teach the latest nutritional science, how to interpret labels and how to make healthy choices, in addition to sharing information about other factors that can contribute to metabolic dysfunction and accumulation of excess fat. We support you in a safe, nonjudgmental environment and provide resources about nutrition, recipes, stress management and exercise.
