How does it work?
First we get to know you inside and out, at the Initial Medical Consultation.
When we know more about you and your medical profile we create a specialized weight loss program, including exercise, nutrition and often medications.
During your monthly consultation we make adjustments and give you the extra support you need to get the job done.
Once you reach your weight loss goals the important Maintenance Program begins so you keep the weight off for good.
What Is Medical Weight Loss?
You work with a specially trained doctor to treat the complex disease of obesity.
Weight loss can be hindered by other underlying health issues such as, heart disease, diabetes, thyroid, etc.
Your Bariatrician has the expertise, diagnostic tools, and medications to treat these other factors. And to create a plan to reach your weight loss goals without surgery, based on your specific needs.
At IMWL the patient comes first. It's not just an empty cliche, it is truly our first priority.
The medical information we use is only part of the picture. Your success depends on looking at all aspects of your life.
By giving you the time and attention not found at other clinics we really get to know you so your weight loss program considers the whole picture.
And you get that extra bit of support that makes a big difference.
