medical weight loss

Obesity is a known risk factor for many illnesses.  Diabetes, stroke, heart disease, depression, sleep apnea, back pain, and many more issues stem from the body being overweight.  The result of these chronic health-related illnesses is a shortened life span along with a lower quality of life.

Our Family Nurse Practitioners, Shelley Kinser, FNP-C and Abbie Bledsoe, FNP-C, have specialized training in medical weight loss and obesity treatments.  We provide an individualized treatment plan based on the patients medical history as well as laboratory values to determine the reasons for weight gain or inability to lose weight.  By considering each patient’s lifestyle, we can customize a plan that is not a diet, but a lifestyle change.  Using less restrictions and more education, we empower our patients and work as a team to reach weight loss goals. Whether you want to lose 5 pounds or 50, visit our medical weight loss treatment center today.
