Personalized DietLow fat. Low carb. Atkins. South beach. The options are endless. But nothing has worked well for you. Sure you lost weight on atkins, but it came back w/ a vengeance (who can follow that diet anyway? ) Or perhaps you ate low-fat food, but your weight & cholesterol barely budged. What you need is a diet specifically for you & your needs. Premier medical weight loss has the dietmaster pro system that tailors a diet specifically for you, whether you are an overweight diabetic or a competition bodybuilder. You can rest assured that our physician will further refine the diet after reviewing your medical history & medications.
Body CompositionAt premier medical weight loss, we utilize a tanita body composition scale on every patient at every visit. More that just a physician’s scale, this complex piece of equipment utilizes electrical impedance (the body’s ability to conduct an electrical charge) to determine each patient’s body fat percentage & lean body mass. This information allows our physician to make sure you are losing unsightly fat & not healthy muscle mass. In case you were worried – it is completely painless!
Metabolic RateMany weight loss programs simply instruct the patient to follow a low calorie diet without considering that individual's daily caloric expenditure or metabolic rate. While a 1000 kcal diet might be appropriate for weight reduction in a petite female, a larger, more muscular male is almost certain to lose considerable muscle mass on such a diet. At premier medical weight loss, we utilize a korr indirect calorimeter to properly assess a patient’s resting metabolic rate. A healthy diet based on each person’s caloric “burn” allows for the rapid loss of fat without reduction in precious muscle.
SupplementsComments like, “i tend to snack on junk food at work,” & “i don’t have time to properly prepare healthy meals,” prompted us to carry nationally recognized nutritional supplements at premier medical weight loss. Our physician only nutritional supplements are made by one of the leaders in the market. They were designed w/ you in mind. All of the foods are packed w/ protein to prevent muscle breakdown during periods of rapid weight loss. They are also low in carbs & saturated fat that can surely sabotage your weight loss plans. Our "health foods" taste great... now if we can just keep our physician from eating our entire inventory!
ExerciseWho has the time & who has the energy? Most of us know that some type of exercise program is essential for prolonged weight loss, but few know exactly what to do. At premier medical weight loss, we work w/ each patient to find an exercise program that is not only healthy, but also fun. Our physician is a former division i track & field athlete so he has a strong understanding of competitive fitness. His five years as a practicing board certified internal medicine physician allow him to tailor a program to a more complicated medical patient or to someone who simply desires to be healthy.
MedicationsWe’ve all seen the ads in magazines & on tv: “lose all the weight you want without dieting!” unfortunately, for the vulnerable consumer, these claims are usually followed by the fine print: these claims have not been substantiated. At premier medical weight loss, we utilize fda approved mediations such as phentermine & diethylpropion that have documented safety records when used under a physician’s care. Careful follow-up ensures that the medications are right for you & for your convenience, most medications are dispensed on-site.
Botox CosmeticWhether its crows feet, forehead wrinkles or the furrow that jumps up on your brow, unwelcome wrinkles can make you look & feel older. By now you've probably heard of botox cosmetic. It has the ability to banish wrinkles by decreasing the activity of the muscles that cause them in the first place. Not surprisingly, many use this treatment to not only treat the wrinkles they have, but also to help prevent them from developing in the first place.
Chemical PeelsAt premier medical weight loss & aesthetics, we offer chemical peels available only to physicians. The nationally recognized skin care leader skinceuticals has developed several exceptional peels.

This mild peel takes just a few minutes & will leave your skin looking younger & more even in complexion.
