Weight Loss Program
Welcome to BWMedMD. We are excited that you are committed to improving your health and have invited our practice to be part of your journey. Our approach to the medical management of weight loss is similar to that of other chronic diseases, like asthma or high blood pressure. Treatment is tailored to your needs and may look different than someone else in this program. Weight-loss success is dependent on many factors, including your motivation and commitment to better health.
You will be provided with compassionate care that is non-judgmental and sensitive to your needs. Commitment to your medical safety is paramount, particularly when prescribing weight-loss medications. Your success is not only measured by “pounds lost” – but we will also track improvements in your laboratory work, vital signs, body composition, and quality of life.
