Physicians Weight Loss Centers
Physicians Weight Loss Centers peppers the nation, doling out slim-down tips honed during the course of three decades in business. Each center staffs a physician who, in tandem with a team of skilled counselors, selects one of six weight-loss and lifestyle programs to guide each client toward his or her desired results. Clients first undergo a personal evaluation, during which a staff member completes pre-diet testing and metabolic measurement. The center’s sextet of plans are tailored to those who prefer not to exercise, those who travel often, those who cook at home, and those who cook in nonfunctional stage kitchens. Optional behavioral guidance classes complement programs by helping clients develop better eating habits and ways of thinking about food. Patients chat with their counselors often, soaking up the tips the staffers have learned from continual training programs. Clients are encouraged to build a bond with their counselor, as camaraderie not only eases the process, but also improves one’s chances of finding a lifelong three-legged-race partner.
