Bariatrics and Weight Loss

Medical Weight Loss

“Fad diets”, also known as restrictive dieting, produce short term results but ultimately result in weight regain and a sense of failure. Our medical weight loss program instead focuses on sustainable lifestyle changes tailored to your specific needs. Our ultimate goal is to help you turn broken and destructive relationships with food into healthy relationships - ones focused on balance and moderation instead of guilt and deprivation. At The Center for Surgical and Medical Weight Loss, we are dedicated to helping you succeed. We hope you will include us on your journey to discovering a healthier and happier you.
