Medical Weight Loss

Medical weight loss is not a "one diet fits all" program

Medical weight loss is weight management that targets the root causes of obesity and weight gain and is specialized for the patient.

Our evidence-ased program in Grapevine focuses on nutrition, physical activity and long-term lifestyle improvements. We offer nutritional supplements and FDA-approved anti-obesity medication, which commercial weight loss programs cannot do, prescribed by our obesity medicine specialist that oversees your weight loss progress.

An added benefit of working with a weight loss program like ours here in Grapevine is that you may be covered by your insurance.
