Am I healthy enough to participate in a weight loss program?
Prior to beginning a medical weight loss and exercise program a full medical assessment is performed. Our initial evaluation reviews your
medical and family history as well as previous attempts at weight loss. We use a specialized bioimpedence scale that tells us your baseline weight, body
fat and muscle mass percentage and calculates your metabolic rate. We are committed to helping you lose weight quickly and safely.
