Lose Weight, Gain Health

You have probably tried several different diets, exercise programs, lifestyle changes, even other formal weight loss programs.  You likely had short term success with these programs, but unfortunately, the weight eventually came back.  You may have even gained more weight back than you were trying to lose to begin with.  False promises and failed attempts may have lead you down a road of frustration and despair. More concerning is that these diets may offer ill-advised or even dangerous shortcuts to a slimmer figure, with short-lived results.

This is not my philosophy.

I believe that weight loss represents an opportunity to change your health and your life for the better. I offer a comprehensive approach, with options tailored to each individual taking into account your medical and weight history.  You and I will work together as a team in a supportive environment to help you lose weight and gain health.

Premier Medical Weight Management is a comprehensive weight loss program that combines the latest evidence based medicine with one-on-one lifestyle coaching on nutrition, physical activity and behavior by Board Certified Obesity Medicine specialist Alexis David, MD.  

Did You Know?….

While it was not taught when I was in medical school, it is now well known that obesity is a disease.  It is a complex, multi-factorial disease process that is influenced by our genetics, environment, culture,  behavior, food choices, sleep, stress, medications, physical activity level and other conditions.  While there is plenty of research and data to support this, many people are not aware that obesity is a disease and that medical treatments are available.

Yes, you read that right, It’s not your fault.  There is more to it than calories in, and calories out.  You know it, you are living it. I can help you to treat it. You don’t have to do this alone.

I pride myself on forming strong patient relationships. By listening and learning about what makes each individual unique, I am better able to help treat and manage their health conditions. It is no different with weight.  By treating the root cause of weight problems, I can help you to either improve or prevent the development of diabetes, high blood pressure, acid reflux, depression, anxiety, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis,……. the list of conditions is long.

What is motivating you? What is the reason for your desire to change and make a difference in your life?  With my guidance and support, you can lose weight and gain good health.
