Medical weight management is not diet pills, fad diets or surgery. Medical weight loss management is based on the latest in medical scientific evidence that targets the root causes of weight gain and obesity. Dr. Mellow and her staff provide the guidance and treatment needed for her patients to meet their weight loss goals and maintain those goals for life.
Whether the goal is to lose 10 pounds or 100 pounds, medical weight loss enables our patients to achieve their goals as quickly and as safely as possible. Our weight management program is especially beneficial for patients who have a BMI or body mass index of 30 or higher since they are most at risk for other serious medical conditions.
A physician may also recommend certain types of heart tests, such as an EKG (electrocardiogram).
