Healthy weight-loss options

Weight loss can help improve your health by reducing your risk for chronic disease, including heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, joint pain, and more. At your first appointment, you’ll meet with a member of our care team. You may be required to take laboratory tests as part of your health evaluation. During this time, we’ll discuss your weight-loss options, which may include:

  • Behavior and stress management
  • Medication
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Physical activity

After your first visit, we work with you to build a personalized weight management strategy. We may also schedule appointments with other specialists, if needed. Your multispecialty care team is here to help you reach your weight-loss goals:

  • Behavioral therapist
  • Dietitian
  • Doctor or nurse practitioner
  • Physical therapist
