Our nonsurgical, medically supervised weight management program closely monitors and assesses progress toward better health and emotional well-being. The program utilizes Optifast, a full meal replacement plan that transitions to self-prepared "everyday" meals in conjunction with comprehensive patient education and support. The program can be personalized for adults and teens who would like to lose any amount of weight. 

Optifast LogoOur goal is to provide patients with expert resources to address, modify and support lifestyle, behavior and diet decisions.

Our staff
