If you are struggling with your weight, you’re not alone. In fact, nearly 66% of the U.S. population is either overweight or obese. Like any chronic disease, obesity can lead to serious health concerns, disability, and premature death.

The good news is this field of medicine is rapidly evolving. In 2013, for example, the American Medical Association officially recognized obesity as a disease. We approach obesity with this reality in mind and carefully tailor holistic plans – often involving the most groundbreaking medications – to guide our clients towards a healthy weight.
