Elite Weight Loss & Wellness

In the United States, 34% of the population 20 years of age and older are obese. Obesity considerably reduces life expectancy and quality of life, while significantly increases the risk of developing a multitude of other serious medical conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, obstructive sleep apnea, infertility, joint disease, and other diseases. If untreated, these medical conditions decrease the quality and quantity of life.

***During your Initial Visit, please bring all medications that you are currently
taking (including supplements)***

Our friendly, well trained, staff will assess your vital signs including heart rate, blood pressure, height, and weight. We may also calculate your percentage of body fat. You will meet with the nurse practitioner to review your past medical history and determine your weight loss goals. The usefulness of weight loss medications in your individual situation will be discussed to determine appropriateness.

Routine blood testing and an EKG may be required prior to initiation of weight loss medication. During the initial consultation, we will establish specific goals for your weight loss, including calorie and nutrient goals.

Once it has been determined that it is safe for you to begin an exercise program, we will perform a fitness evaluation with you and your exercise program will be recommended accordingly. Additionally, we will review your previous weight loss attempts to identify past hurdles, and we will work together to overcome them.

If medication is prescribed, you will return in four weeks for a follow-up assessment. We will continue to see you every 2-4 weeks until you have achieved your weight loss goals.

Our goal is to give you the proper tools to assist you in achieving your weight loss and wellness goals. We will help motivate and inspire you throughout the program. We look forward to working with you!
