The Healthy Weight Clinic is a doctor-supervised program that helps children achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Our mission is to help you and your family reach this goal by teaching healthy lifestyle choices.
The clinic is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of medical professionals, including physicians, nurses, dietitians, exercise specialists and behavioral specialists. These specialists will take an extensive look at what is going on in your child’s world. To accomplish this, families must complete and return the new patient packet linked to the right side of this page.
Once this packet is received, a team member will contact you to schedule the first comprehensive evaluation. The first visit is designed to identify the root causes of your child’s weight issues and educate the family about potential long-term health effects. Based on the results of the evaluation, a recommendation for treatment will be made.
Thank you for taking the first step to positive lasting change. We look forward to scheduling your first appointment!
We know you must have questions about your child's condition. We hope you find these articles helpful.
