Medical Weight Loss

Why should I choose medical weight loss?

The science of weight loss is deceptively simple — consume fewer calories than you need consistently. However, other factors need consideration. 

  • Do you have a hormone imbalance or other health condition that makes it harder for you to lose weight?
  • Are you restricting yourself too much and setting yourself up for failure?
  • Do you quit before you even begin because you don’t like vegetables or think it will be too hard?

Don’t give up on yourself. Whether you need to lose 10 pounds or 100, Doctors Clinic offers customized medical weight loss programs to help you overcome your obstacles to weight loss and reach your goals. They work with you to create an enjoyable experience while you change your life.

What do medical weight loss programs include?

Doctors Clinic has a unique approach to weight loss. The providers don’t rely on fads or gimmicks — they help you change your relationship with food so you can follow a sensible, delicious, and sustainable diet and incorporate safe, moderate exercise into your daily routine. 

Health assessment

Your doctor provides an exam and testing to identify how much weight you need to lose and whether you have any conditions that will affect your weight loss journey. They also track your blood pressure and glucose and cholesterol levels so you can see more improvements than just the number on the scale. 

Meal planning

Your doctor helps you create a nutritious meal plan using real food that you buy at the grocery store. They can help you adjust your diet to get through plateaus or add variation if you need it. They also teach you about macros, nutrients, and other details to consider when choosing food.


Making changes is challenging, but Doctors Clinic is in your corner every day. You have regular appointments to check your progress and adjust your program as necessary. You have small goals to keep you motivated as you work toward your ideal weight. Trust the medical weight loss program — your doctor believes in your success. 

What happens when I reach my goal?

Often, the hardest part of weight loss is maintaining your weight when you’ve met your goal. Doctors Clinic provides a maintenance program to help you transition from the medical weight loss program to weight maintenance. 

Your doctor helps you figure out your caloric needs and activity level to help you stay slim and healthy for years to come.
