The board-certified physicians at The Center for Medical Weight Loss develop individualized fitness plans focused on nutrition, physical activity, life style, and medication. Patients begin the quest with a one-on-one consultation with a doctor, discussing their overall health and medication history to devise a weight-loss plan and to make sure their kidneys haven't been stolen. This is followed by a body-composition exam, in which the physician breaks down the percentage of muscle, fat, and water comingling in the human subject and records his or her resting metabolism rate and blood pressure. The preliminary visit concludes with a pair of injections to boost the body's B-12 level and fat-burning ability. The nonsurgical program caters to each patient's metabolism and potential hormonal disorders and sends patients on a path to a slimmer self with minimal rope-climbing burns and a comprehensive weight-loss plan based on the exam's results.
When she was a host of Philadelphia morning news program ?Eye Opener,? Marlie Hall consumed her fair share of coffee, donuts, and other breakfast goodies. Between her love for food, her job, and her lifestyle though, she didn?t think she could ever drop the weight she had put on from those treats. But through her efforts, she surprised herself?and the staff of the weight loss clinic?by losing 21 pounds. In her video testimony, she also attributes much of her success to her program?s herbal supplements, which she says curbed her appetite and filled her with energy.
Marlie?s journey is much like other success stories shared by Soza Clinic clients who have chosen its medically supervised weight loss programs. Based on client needs, a program may include nutritional counseling, personal training, and psychological or psychiatric counseling. Clients may also benefit from vitamin B12 injections or other products that can help boost energy and increase metabolism. Along with specific programs, the clinic also offers skin-tightening and body-contouring treatments that use radio frequency energy to stimulate lymphatic drainage and shrink fat cells.
Under the directorship of Dr. Bryan Levey, M.D., LipoLaser of South Jersey's team of medical specialists helps clients achieve their fat-loss and body-contouring goals with advanced laser procedures and holistic health methods. All the facility's technicians are certified and have been trained by Yolo Medical, the same entity that manufactures the Lapex BCS 2000 laser used during LipoLaser sessions. In addition to administering Lapex Curve and LipoLaser body-slimming treatments, the weight-loss gurus lead clients through a four-step program that involves detoxification, LipoLaser, and nutrition and exercise integration. With laser treatments and the motivation of coach Debbi, who has undergone various laser treatments herself, clients can tread the path toward a slimmer physique that can squeeze into even the tightest of potato sacks during family barbecues.

Attempting to lose weight can be a challenging experience—one that’s made all the harder when attempted alone. Because they have a deep understanding of these inherent challenges, the counselors and medical personnel of Physicians Weight Loss Centers eschew dieting to-do lists for more interactive programs, taking the programs step-by-step with their clients to foster optimal results. Like a spotter at a gym, the staff keep their clients focused on their goals by hosting behavioral-guidance classes, scheduling personal meetings, and offering encouraging words as they attempt to bench-press the center’s physicians. In medical consultations, physicians chart clients’ personal chemistry and use the collected data to not only draft a healthy weight-loss program with flexible meal plans, but also a maintenance plan to help them keep the weight off.
