Pasadena Weight Loss MD

A personalized weight loss program, like clothes should be tailored to fit the person

Obesity is a medical condition and therefore should be treated by a medical doctor. People are considered obese when their body mass index (BMI), a measurement obtained by dividing the person’s weight by the square of the person’s height exceeds 30 kg/m2.

The most common cause of Obesity is excessive or wrong food intake and lack of physical activity although there are a few cases which are caused by genes, endocrine disorders, medications or illness. That is why our effective and medically supervised program can help you. It is tailored to personally fit you and your life style.

Highlights of our weight loss program:

  • The program is supervised by a board-certified, experienced, specially trained physician.
  • No contracts. No hidden fees.
  • The program is designed to lose body fat, not muscle (so our patients not only end up looking better, but also  improve their overall health and self-confidence).
  • Multiple weight loss choices – prescription meds, non-prescription meds and dietary supplements.
