Individual and group support set a managed program apart from trying to lose weight on your own. If you've tried to manage your eating plan and exercise in the past but haven't been able to lose the weight or keep it off, participating in our programs may be your key to better health.
What Is Patient Support?
Patient support represents various programs and initiatives to help our participants make weight loss part of their daily lives. Providing a personalized approach to patient support, we incorporate nutrition, medical management, behavioral care, and exercise guidance. We tailor our programs to each patient and create a caring environment.
Benefits of Patient Support
Weight loss is not an easy proposition. The process requires changing your relationship with food, adjusting your lifestyle and reshaping a lifetime's habits. When people try to lose weight without support, they often encounter problems. Having professionals ready to help with medical, nutritional, exercise, and behavioral issues increases the likelihood of success.
People with solid support systems are more likely to lose weight and keep it off long-term. Many patients find it helpful to engage with peers working on weight loss. Asking questions and sharing everyday experiences help to normalize the process.
