About the Weight Clinic

The Weight Clinic is a specialized medical facility that offers a comprehensive approach to the treatment of obesity and related health conditions.

Our program addresses not only the physical aspects of weight loss, but also the mental, emotional, and spiritual factors that can contribute to weight gain.

The main goal of our clinic is to help patients achieve and maintain a healthy weight through a combination of medical and lifestyle interventions. This may include nutrition counseling, physical activity recommendations, medication management, and cognitive behaviour therapy depending on the individual patient's needs and preferences.

We are a referral only, OHIP covered service.
