Welcome to Weight Management Clinic, where you will find serious solutions for weight loss. Live healthy. Live better.
Weight Management Clinic is a medical weight loss clinic in Albuquerque, New Mexico dedicated to helping you achieve healthy long-term weight loss. I provide physician supervised weight management that is individualized and designed to help patients lose and maintain a healthy weight.
At Weight Management Clinic, you will get the personal time and attention you deserve. You will see me, the physician, at every visit and each one-on-one office visit is focused entirely on you. You will have the opportunity to ask questions. Working together, we can develop a confidential and personalized treatment plan to optimize your weight loss and improve your health. You will receive professional medical care in a comfortable and private office setting.
With my years of academic training and clinical experience, I can consult on the simple to the most complex patients. I can see those who need to lose 20 pounds and want to prevent further weight gain and avoid chronic illnesses as well as patients who need to lose larger amounts of weight because of more complex medical problems such as hypertension, metabolic syndrome, prediabetes, diabetes, and insulin dependent diabetes. In many cases, with hard work, chronic illnesses can be prevented or the rate of progression can be slowed down, and sometimes reversed. It’s not just a matter of “willpower” and if you have been struggling, you may need medical help. When medically indicated, I prescribe antiobesity prescription medications for weight loss to help you live a longer and healthier life.
