Patients


Most patients who come to the Balance Medical Weight Loss Program have tried other programs and failed. Some patients have never been on a weight loss diet, but know that when they come to us, they will be put on a medically healthy and safe program while being supervised by a medical doctor.

What age to do you start seeing patients?

Generally we will start seeing patients as young as 16, and as old as people in their 80s. Younger patients come to us because they want to learn healthy eating habits, and lose weight while under the supervision of a doctor.

Older patients come to us because they tend to have health issues, which they know will improve or resolve with weight loss.

Do you treat patients with Diabetes and who are on insulin or oral diabetic medications?

We have many diabetics in our program, and many who are on insulin. We will design a program individualized to you that works with your needs. We will work very closely with you and your doctor, to insure that your insulin levels and/or oral hypoglycemics get adjusted down correctly as you lose weight. We have many diabetics who have been able to dramatically decrease or even stop their insulin or oral meds when they successfully lost enough weight.

Do you treat patients with other medical problems such as heart disease or any other disease?

Yes, as this is a medical practice, we have many patients with a variety of diseases such as PCOS, heart disease, hypertension, thyroid disease, adrenal diseases, and more. All of our patients with chronic disease improve dramatically or resolve with weight loss. If you have any specific questions, please feel free to call our office.

Do you treat people who just want to lose weight, and who do not have a chronic disease?

Yes, we have many people in this category as well. We help people who need to lose as little as 5 to 10 pounds, but just need to learn what food combinations to eat. We have people that need to lose over 200 pounds, and need medical supervision to get there. We design different programs for all of these patients that are specific to their needs.
