Personalized medical weight loss with the latest treatments and comprehensive, coordinated care.

If you are struggling to maintain or achieve a healthy weight, seeing an obesity medicine specialist may help. This expertise is available close to home at Nuvance Health™ through our Metabolic Medical Weight Loss Program. We are one of the few programs in New York’s Hudson Valley and Western Connecticut and offer the latest treatments and comprehensive, coordinated care for all patients seeking non-surgical approaches to weight management.

What to expect

Care starts with a detailed evaluation, including your complete medical history, current diet and eating behaviors. We screen for risks for metabolic syndrome and other complications of obesity, like liver disease and sleep apnea. We explain metabolic syndrome and its impact on your health in ways that are easy to understand.

The team also describes how medical weight loss can help and supports you in making lifestyle changes that increase your chances of success. These efforts enable you to take an active role in improving your health

Medical Weight Loss at Nuvance Health: Why Choose Us?

An experienced doctor specializing in obesity medicine (sometimes called bariatric medicine) guides your care. You also benefit from the assistance of nutritionists, mental health counselors and more. We work together to help you make changes that can improve your long-term well-being. Highlights of our program include:

  • Personalized care
    Each person experiences obesity and its complications differently. We take time to get to know you as an individual, helping us tailor care to your needs. This approach enables us to develop a weight loss plan that’s easier for you to stick to.
  • Coordination
    We refer you to other Nuvance Health specialists, including cardiologists, endocrinologists (for diabetes) and sleep medicine doctors, whenever necessary. We communicate with the specialists you see, so you don’t have to worry about the details of your care.
  • Bariatric surgery
    If bariatric surgery is right for you, we refer you to one of the experienced surgeons. We offer a range of procedures, including gastric bypass and gastric sleeve. Get more information about types of weight loss surgery we offer. 
  • Supportive care
    We give you the extra attention that can make a difference in your ability to lose weight and keep it off. In addition to frequent office visits, we are also available through telehealth. Our support groups provide information and encouragement from people going through similar challenges.
