Mobile’s Only Board Certified Medical Weight Loss Physician
Welcome to Healthy Weight 4 Me!
There are many programs and “magic” solutions available for weight loss which provide people with short-term success. It is, however, all too common for many to regain their weight. Our focus is helping you achieve optimal health through weight loss that can be sustained.
We see you as a lot more than a before-and-after picture. Contrary to popular opinion (even among some physicians), obesity is not a disorder of simply eating too much or a lazy lifestyle.
Our goal is to help you determine the optimal approach for personal success through a medically-directed program that is practical, affordable, realistic, and sustainable.
What makes our programs more effective than so many others is that our knowledge of the complexities of weight loss helps us design a program that focuses on your unique needs. Healthy Weight 4 Me is dedicated to preventive care and improving obesity-related health problems.
Our desire for you is to achieve a healthier future. We hope you will learn more about us by browsing our website. If you are interested in more information, you may call our office and register for a free informational meeting.
