About The Weight Clinic Team

At The Weight Clinic, 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.
