Part of what makes Transformations the obvious choice for addressing your weight and health issues is the truly comprehensive nature of the program. While there are programs that might provide bariatric surgery, and numerous "programs" that promise easy weight loss – Transformations provides a full spectrum of evidence-based medical treatment for weight loss.
If you enter the Medical (non-surgical) portion of Transformations, you will still have a full spectrum of weight and health management options. Transformations employees a full time bariatrician (Internal Medicine physician who specializes in obesity medicine), certified bariatric nurses, dietitian, and exercise physiologist. This multi-disciplinary team can assist you with an individualized weight loss and management program. Our goal is to give you the assistance you need to be successful – long term – with your weight management goals.
If you are just in need of a dietary consult to discuss calories, nutrients, portion control, food choices and grocery shopping – then perhaps all you need is a visit with our registered dietitian.
Perhaps you need more medical monitoring because of existing health related issues. In that case, you might be seen on a recurring basis by our physician and dietitian.
Ongoing behavior modification can be addressed through our 12 week LEARN® program. This program provides nutrition education and addresses behaviors that can lead to weight gain. It is designed to change the way you think about dieting.
For those who need the most intense non-surgical intervention to achieve weight loss we offer the Optifast ® program, which is typically a 9 or 18 week medically supervised full meal replacement program.
For the patients of Transformations – weight loss programs can be modified to meet the particular needs of the patient. If your schedule does not allow you to make our scheduled classes, you can ask about the unique "Executive" programs
