As the name suggests, medical weight loss means losing weight with a fully trained medical staff in your corner. Not every weight-loss strategy is right for every patient, and a poor strategy leads to failure that affects you both physically and emotionally. With this medical-weight loss service, Dr. Perez evaluates the needs of each patient and develops a plan that will include more than just calorie reduction. Dr. Perez incorporates a holistic approach to dropping those pounds that ensures it is done safely and effectively without detrimental side effects.
