 Metabolic syndrome, prediabetes, diabetes ,risk for complications from fatty liver disease, obstructive sleep apnea, heart disease, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, eating disorders


  • Offer body composition analysis through DEXA Scan

Discuss the pillars of weight management, which include: 

 *Nutrition, physical activity, behavioral modification, medication and surgery


  • Use the pillars to create an individualized weight loss plan
  • Determine need to further referrals, (psychotherapy, physical therapy, dietician or other)
  • Develop a follow-up appointment schedule
“My goals in starting this program are twofold.  First, I want to help improve the health of people in Jackson County and the surrounding communities through achievement and maintenance of a healthy weight.  Also, I want to increase education regarding nutrition, exercise, weight loss medications, weight loss surgery, and weight bias/stigma.
Obesity is the number one health risk factor of our time.  Tackling the problem of excess weight is complex and takes much more than someone being told to ‘eat less, move more.’  That’s why I want to be able to take the time to address the reasons why someone struggles with weight and be able to tailor recommendations in a way that works for their life.”
