About Us

Our Mission

The Weight Loss & Diabetes Center’s mission is to help as many people as we can to lose weight and keep it off, as well as to prevent and reverse diabetes

Our Focus

The Weight Loss & Diabetes Center’s focus is primarily behavioral, encompassing psychology and nutrition, as research has shown for decades that behavioral methodologies are the key to permanent weight loss.

Extreme diets, extreme exercise, and supplements lacking scientific validity are not supported by the center.

Weight loss medications can be a temporary, short-term aid for weight loss and we do prescribe them in some cases but medications are not the focus of our center.
