Board-certified Dr. Keith Pierce uses his 20 years of experience to bolster patients’ daily health with practical regimens that include consultations, analysis, and vitamin boosts. An injection of B12 delivers a high dose of the essential nutrient, which may help increase energy and boost mood. Vital to the nervous and cardiovascular systems, B12 can also accelerate the metabolism and sharpen the mind, helping patients quickly remember where they left their misplaced car keys or family members.
During a full physical exam, patients discuss any health concerns before the physician runs through a gamut of tests—including a breathing test, urine analysis, and blood-glucose check—to ensure everything is in tip-top shape and to detect potential future issues. The doctor then goes over all his findings, as well as photos from his latest fishing trip, before arming patients with proactive health tips.
The supportive weight-loss program aims to steer patients toward better health with custom plans geared toward permanent weight loss. During an initial consultation, patients can sit down with doctors to discuss obstacles to past weight loss, hoped-for results, and the pros and cons of measuring their weight in stones rather than pounds. Then, the doctor will design a diet plan that accommodates a normal lifestyle without the need for expensive vitamins or prepackaged foods. Throughout the plan, patients learn the ins and outs of eating well, a vital skill that will help them avoid regaining shed pounds. Every week, the friendly staff will mark progress with weigh-ins as the doctor cheers on progress with a physician-grade pom-pom.
