Comprehensive Medical Weight Management Program
Arif Ahmad, MD, Medical Director
The Comprehensive Medical Weight Management Program utilizes simple, sound principles to help individuals achieve optimal health and maintain their best personal body weight.
Supervised by a physician who specializes in weight loss, patients within the program achieved an average weight loss of 24 pounds by three months, and most patients who continued in our maintenance program experienced further weight loss.
Our 12-week program provides each participant with a full nutrition evaluation, weekly support, follow ups and metabolic testing, along with a customized meal plan that is developed to meet each participant’s individualized lifestyle and health goals. The focus of the program is on healthy eating using the principles of the Mediterranean dietary guidelines to help patients on their journey to reach optimal health. To help reinforce and maintain new lifestyle behaviors, a 16-week maintenance program is available after the initial program is completed.
All classes are conducted by Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDN) who have advanced degrees in nutrition and are certified in health coaching and behavior change. Education classes are held weekly at convenient times.
