How it works:
Your initial evaluation includes a comprehensive health history and physical exam. This also includes measurements along with a body composition scan. We discuss your weight history, past medical, and surgical history, lifestyle and identify medical conditions which may be contributing to your weight along with a review of your current medications.
You work 1-1 with Dr. Collman who also has additional training with the American Board of Obesity Medicine. Once your history has been reviewed, we then design a plan with you based on your health history, a physical, Body composition scan and lab work. However, in most cases we combine lifestyle changes with medications to maximize success. There are many medications designed to help with weight loss and we pride ourselves in knowing which one is best for you.
Over the years we have found that the most successful patients are the ones that are seen regularly. In many cases it is simple accountability that keeps patients motivated. Your package includes bi-weekly check-ins and communication with your doctor to help you reach your goals.

Every patient has a unique metabolic health profile and weight loss goal. This is not a one-size-fits-all program, and the number of pounds varies from one person to the next. However, our patients lose an average of 10 to 15% of their starting body weight and successfully maintain that weight loss. Typical results vary and on average significant weight loss is seen after three months.
No, the weight loss program is considered a specialty service. Specialty services are focused visits and do not include primary care membership services such as wellness exams, sick visits, or acute care services. You do not have to be a member to be apart of the weight loss program.
