Medical Weight Loss Clinic 

We now have a comprehensive intensive medical weight loss program that involves dietary counseling and physician supervised weight loss medications. 

Not everybody is a candidate for weight loss surgery.  Others don't wish to undergo surgery to achieve their weight loss goals.  A structured and expertly-created dietary plan is fundamental for any weight loss modality, with or without surgery.  Our new medical weight loss program is customized to treat nonsurgical patients as well as to aid those patients undergoing surgery.

Diet and nutrition are woefully misunderstood, even within the medical community.  We've allowed the food industry to construct their own nutrition labels and food pyramids.  Our understanding of obesity has demonstrated that a proper dietary plan can help patients see through the confusing labels and misleading health guidelines. 

Our program involves an initial 1 hour nutritional assessment with our highly-experienced bariatric dietitian in the office.  Afterwards, a dietary plan will be created for you along with a regular follow up schedule to meet regularly with our dietitian and weight loss team. They will follow your progress and adjust your diet as you continue to lose weight.  After you get enrolled in the dietary program, we will discuss adding weight loss medications to aid in your initial weight loss.

Weight loss medication used in our program target the two biggest components of staying overweight: appetite and insulin resistance.  A set of routine labwork will be drawn after your initial visit and your level of insulin resistance will be studied.

Once we have targeted the biggest factors that are keeping you from losing weight, we will then create a focused medical course than will work in tandem with your dietary plan.  

With a combination of a expertly-created diet and physician-supervised medication regimen that are both targeting your specific causes of excess fat, your ability to start dropping pounds will take off like you've never thought possible.  Obesity is a medical disease, so you need to start treating it like other medical diseases by allowing medical professionals to use their expertise to aid in your treatment. 

The total cost to the program is significantly less than commercial diet plans who have no medical professionals following your progress or customizing your care. 

Get started today to reclaim your life free of excess weight!

Dr. Christopher Finley, DO, specializes in the surgical subspecialties of Bariatric and Minimally Invasive Surgery. He is Board Certified Minimally Invasive Surgery and Bariatric Surgery.Dr. Chris Finley

  • Board Certifiied in General Surgery by the AOBS.   
  • ASMBS Fellowship Certifiied Bariatric and Minimally Invasive Surgery

Dr. Finley found the vast majority of what we do in medicine and surgery is manage the problems that arise from health problems without ever fixing the root cause of disease.  This is very much like figuring out different ways of putting a bucket underneath a leaky roof rather than just patching the leak altogether. 

Bariatric surgery has been shown time and time again to be the most effective way to cure obesity and obesity-related diseases.  Patients undergoing weight loss surgery not only lose the majority of their excess body weight, but also keep the weight off for good.  More importantly, diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and all other obesity-related diseases resolve or are significantly reduced.
