Nearly 70% of Americans are overweight, and nearly 40% of Americans are considered obese.* Obesity has significant effects on our health. The longer an individual is obese, the more at risk they are of developing weight-related conditions such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, even certain types of cancer. It also leads to a diminished quality of life and can even lead to an earlier death/decreased life span. But there are ways we can help you with both surgical and non-surgical weight loss options.

Make yourself a priority and start living a healthier life today.
