To lengthen thy Life, lessen thy Meals. Eat to live, and not live to eat. -Benjamin Franklin
You cannot out exercise what you eat. Scott Caudle, MD

Our approach to the medical management of weight loss is similar to that of other chronic diseases, like asthma or high blood pressure. Treatment is tailored to your needs and may look different than someone else in our program.
Weight-loss success is dependent on many factors, including your motivation and commitment to better health. Our staff promises to provide compassionate care that is non-judgmental and sensitive to your needs. We are committed to your medical safety, particularly when prescribing weight-loss medications.
Because we are physicians or nurse practitioners, we measure your success not only by “pounds lost” – we may also track improvements in your laboratory work (such as cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose), vital signs (such as blood pressure or body weight / BMI), body composition (such as fat vs lean muscle), and quality of life (such as improvements in your ability to get up and move, exercise, joint or back complaints, quality of sleep). Weight loss and maintenance can be a challenging endeavor. We want to celebrate your successes and support you if you encounter difficult times.
Weight Loss Success depends upon a lot of factors. One of the most important is behavior modification. A very useful tool is the use of mindfulness. Another way of saying that is “The squeaky wheel gets oiled”. Please don’t hesitate to ask us questions and share with us any struggles you may have. It is common for a patient to have made many attempts at weight loss before lasting success is found, but we can help you find your success!
Excess weight can negatively impact our health as it can give rise to chronic disease and promote inflammation in our bodies. It can negatively affect our income producing potential and adversely affect our psychological outlook on life. It can also affect our gut bacteria and its normal healthy relationship with our bodies causing ill health. Poor diets eventually promote the development of toxins, turn off good genes, and, suppress our immune system.
Excess weight can also affect our hormones, increase cortisol levels, metabolic markers of inflammation, ghrelin, leptin, and insulin resistance. Chronic stress can increase visceral fat, cause difficulty sleeping, weakening muscles, weakening bones and decreased cognitive functioning.
We want to focus on low glycemic index eating (eating food that doesn’t spike our blood glucose), body composition, exercise, providing education, and when needed, medication.
