Unhealthy weight is a chronic disease
requiring long-term treatment. 

Our team practices the principles of obesity medicine.  Based on these principles, we prescribe personalized medical goals.

 

These principles are:

  • Nutrition

  • Exercise

  • Self-monitoring

  • Long-term appetite suppression

There are FDA approved medications and devices for long-term weight control.

  1. Qsymia (phentermine & topiramate combination)

  2. Contrave (naltrexone & bupropion combination)

  3. Saxenda (liraglutide)​​-check to see if your insurance covers Saxenda here

The goal of medical treatment for unhealthy weight is to live longer, healthier lives.

Consult with us. Remember, it's never just about the medications/devices, nutrition, monitoring, nor exercise. All four principles of obesity medicine must be followed to result in significant life-style changes and sustained weight control. If you're ready, bring the motivation; we bring the knowledge and training.
