Why Medical Weight Management?

If you are reading this, chances are you are interested in getting sound medical advice and assistance with weight loss. The fact is that very few individuals can lose 20 or more pounds without help. If you have been struggling to lose weight, it's time to stop beating yourself up, and work with an expert with a proven track record of helping individuals to achieve a healthier weight.


Comprehensive Medical Approach

Comprehensive weight management offers an approach which is not available with commercial weight loss programs.  Only a medical provider can customize a plan based on your unique needs, health conditions and weight loss history, and help you lose weight safely and sensibly. Working individually with a healthcare provider allows for adjusting the program, and even trying a different approach to optimal weight loss and weight maintenance, if necessary.


Keep the Weight Off for Life

Most commercial weight loss programs are ineffective at helping patients lose weight and keep it off long-term. Approximately 95 per cent of patients nationwide who lose weight following a low calorie program will gain it back within the year. Dr. Dory will help you to develop strategies for managing your weight, which will provide you with the skills to maintain your new and healthier weight.



In some cases, lifestyle changes aren't enough to control your weight. There are a variety of FDA-approved medications designed to supress your appetite and assist you with weight loss. Medications can play a very important role in successful weight management.
