Am I a Candidate for Medical Weight Loss?

Weight loss is more complex than simply eating less and moving more. Losing a meaningful amount of weight and keeping it off requires more than willpower and counting calories. That’s why one-size-fits-all, self-directed diets often fall short of providing long-term weight loss. 

Many people who go it alone struggle to keep the weight off. If you’ve tried losing weight on your own without success, there is hope.

Board-certified internal medicine physician and weight-loss specialist Dr. Jonathan Leibowitz offers personalized, medically supervised programs proven to help you lose weight and maintain your new weight. Partnering with us is the first step to permanently slimming down and feeling good.
