Medical Weight Loss Program

Non-Surgical Program for Weight Loss

Introduction
Obesity is the second leading cause of death in the United States. Obesity increases the risk for many disorders including diabetes, heart disease, depression and cancer. The risk of breast cancer, uterus cancer, colon cancer and esophagus cancer are increased in obese individuals. Weight loss can decrease the risk of medical problems and even improve diabetes and high blood pressure. Let us help you take your first steps towards a healthier future.

Weight Loss Program

Our Philosophy
Studies show that 98% of people who lose weight gain it all back within 2 years. Therefore, our philosophy is that obesity is a chronic problem that requires life-time treatment. We also believe weight-loss is more effective when the whole family is involved.

That’s why Dr. Mehdizadeh has created a multi-faceted program that combines many techniques to help individuals and families lose weight and stay healthy.

You can take comfort that your weight-loss experience is safe, effective and directly supervised by a board certified physician.

Our Program
Our program combines multiple medical, nutritional and behavioral treatments with close guidance and coaching to help you lose weight. In addition to the traditional diet and moderate exercise, we use a combination of education, nutritional counseling, behavioral and life-style modification, meal replacement and possibly combinations of medications in a physician-supervised setting. Each individual is unique; therefore, Dr. Mehdizadeh will first create a personalized plan that is specific to your body, eating habits, weight, and previous experiences. Your plan is then modified as you make progress and lose weight and will finally focus on maintenance to keep you lean and healthy for life.
