Could you or someone you know benefit from the medical expertise of professionals who understand obesity and specialize in helping individuals with lifelong weight issues renew their health and their life?
Individuals referred to Norton Weight Management Services for medically supervised weight loss must have a primary care physician. Like other specialty practices, this service does not replace the care provided by a primary care physician. Instead, our team of professionals will assist with the medical, emotional and behavioral issues associated with obesity.
This program helps patients understand the reason behind their disease, how their bodies react to food and how to change their eating habits to lose weight and control their hunger. The program begins with a thorough physical examination and consultation, which includes nutritional counseling and assistance in developing an eating plan. Prescription medication may be given after the evaluation, if indicated.
In some cases, an obese patient’s health is so critical that it is medically necessary for the patient to lose weight faster than is possible through this method alone. As part of Norton Weight Management Services, patients may receive suggestions for the most appropriate surgical options available.
