MediLoss Solutions, Medical Weight Loss Program
Whether you need to lose 30 or 130 lbs., MediLoss Solutions has been designed to help you reach your goal of a healthy weight.
Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, we create an individualized weight loss plan for each person using the most current evidenced-based research. We discuss your diet and weight loss history, personal barriers to losing weight, and factors that can be contributing to weight gain. We also perform lab tests to check for abnormalities and any physiological and medical conditions that can affect weight loss.
Once your individual weight loss plan is developed and you’ve started your weight loss journey, we provide ongoing interactive support with a weight loss guide to review your results and make adjustments to your plan as needed. Your weight loss guide is a Nurse Practitioner who has expertise and years of experience in evidenced-based weight loss methods.
