What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is not surgery or diet pills. It is weight management based on medical scientific evidence that targets the root causes of obesity and weight gain. Trained doctors or medical providers provide the treatment and guidance necessary to help you achieve weight loss and maintain it for life.

Medical weight loss is designed to help any individual with his or her specific weight loss goals, whether to lose 100 pounds or those last stubborn ten pounds. It is especially beneficial for those who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher because it can reduce the risk of other serious medical conditions.

The tools that medical weight loss providers use to help you manage your weight are very different from what you might find with commercial programs. Medical weight loss providers use your metabolism and body composition (mainly fat percentage) as true indicators of weight loss progress, something other plans can’t do. See the chart for other differences…

Testimonials

  • "I have had sciatic pain for years! throwing hundreds of dollars for massages that only temporarily helped. Dr. Scharf understood sciatic and back pain personally and has helped me find a long term solution. I have less pain, more energy and a better understanding of how to manage my sciatic. This is the office to go to if you want long term relief."
    Kellen E. Chandler, AZ
  • "I like the chiropractor because he has helped me a lot. It has helped keep my spine straight."
    Joey S. (age 4 1/2)
  • "Thank you Dr. Scharf and Breinn! My neck feels so much better than when I first came in about 3 months ago. What a difference and I have been to many great chiropractors. None have been able to bring progressively better & better long last relief to my neck. The traction REALLY made a big difference!"
