Center for Medical Weight Loss and Metabolic Control
The Center for Medical Weight Loss & Metabolic Control at Rowan Medicine offers personalized medical weight programs administered by a board-certified family physician trained in obesity and bariatric medicine. Our programs are specifically tailored to meet individual needs, as we believe there is no ‘quick fix’ or a one-size-fits-all solution to weight loss. Whether your goal is to lose weight for cosmetic reasons or due to health problems related to obesity, our supervised programs will help you to develop a healthy, enduring change so that you can stop worrying about weight loss and start enjoying life.
Before receiving a customized medically monitored weight loss program designed specifically for you, you will undergo an in-depth evaluation including:
- A complete review of your overall health history, including an evaluation of any medications and supplements that you may take
- A dietary, exercise/activity level, psychological, social and sleep assessment
- Blood tests to check for insulin resistance, thyroid function and other factors
- An EKG and physical exam to check heart function and overall health
Using this information, we will create a program that will help you safely and effectively lose weight, and, most importantly, keep it off.
