Carrying excess weight impacts more than just your physical health. You feel drained emotionally because you constantly feel bad about the way you look. As you struggle to move, resist your cravings or dress a body you aren’t sure how you came to have, you feel exhausted by sadness and frustration.
Does this sound familiar?
Negative feelings may drive us to unhealthy measures, like riding the diet roller coaster, desperately slashing calories and choosing diets and exercise programs that put our bodies at risk for injury, exhaustion and vitamin depletion. Chronic dieting wrecks havoc on our metabolism, which only makes it harder and harder to lose weight and maintain a healthy size.
There is a better way.
Our medically supervised weight loss programs combine lifestyle modification techniques with the best science can offer us. Through our safe and effective programs, hundreds of patients have lost significant amounts of weight, and maintained their weight loss after finding the guidance and support in our community to permanently change their health outcomes.

This diet is entirely safe, it is a hormone that is naturally produced in the body of pregnant women to enable the metabolization of fat for the benefit of the fetus. It is also present in the male body, in smaller amounts and is often used, in greater quantities, for the treatment of certain problems of the female reproductive system and in stimulating ovulation in women who have difficulty becoming pregnant. It is safe for men as well.

As the situation is changing rapidly, we want to make sure all of our patients are taken care of both physically and mentally.
