Clinical

Medical Weight Loss Clinic

Many people hear the term “clinical weight loss” and immediately think of weight loss surgery or weight loss medications. Medical weightloss doesn’t have to be that extreme.

At Doctor For Life in Greenville, we are dedicated to treating our clients from a holistic perspective, paying attention to physical, emotional, and behavioral traits. Our team is made up of licensed physicians, registered dietitians and nutritionists, certified international health coaches, and certified medical assistants. They work together to combine their knowledge and passion for holistic care to benefit you, providing a full range of medical care to lead to a healthier life and effective, long-lasting weight loss.

Internal Medicine

Internal Medicine specializes in the care of adult patients with undefined symptoms and various medical issues and focuses on prevention, diagnosis and treatment throughout all stages of the disease process.

Obesity Medicine

We specialize in weight management for children and adults. Over two-thirds of Americans are overweight and over one-third are obese. Carrying extra weight takes a toll on the body, as well as increases the risk of chronic and fatal diseases. Doctor for Life can help you start and maintain healthy, life-saving habits.

Registered Dietitian

A Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist is a food and nutrition expert who has met rigorous academic and professional requirements. Our RDN practices Medical Nutrition Therapy in order to improve patients’ immediate health, outcomes and quality of life.

Behavioral Counseling

People make choices every day. Counseling can help you understand those choices and their emotional and habitual triggers. Work with a Health Coach to reinforce desirable behaviors and correct those that are not.

Exercise Prescription

How should you exercise? When should you exercise? A beginner may be confused, and even someone who was previously very active could be overwhelmed. The Doctor for Life team can provide necessary guidance, based on your fitness level and outcome goals.

Clinical Weight Loss Programs in Greenville

At Doctor For Life in Greenville, SC, we offer a comprehensive range of medical weightloss services. From medical nutrition therapy to behavioral counseling, our health coaches have the medical expertise necessary to help break bad habits and improve your overall health and well-being. Our clinical weight loss areas of focus include:

  • Internal medicine:

    Our internal medicine focuses on instructing patients on the ways that healthy lifestyle choices affect their body systems, discussing key markers of health like metabolic function, and providing other medical knowledge you won’t get from just any old diet clinic. Our comprehensive clinical system helps you get the crucial foundations you need to achieve clinical weight loss in the present, and lasting health over the course of your life.

  • Obesity medicine:

    Many chronic diseases are caused by stress on your body from weight that it isn’t built to endure. Heart disease, blood pressure and arterial issues, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, high cholesterol levels, and even various cancers can be linked to obesity. At Doctor for Life, we work to help you make lifestyle changes that can prevent or minimize these medical conditions, helping lead to an improved quality of life.

  • Registered dietitian:

    Doctor for Life sees a dietitian’s role in clinical weightloss as being crucial—that is, with the support of a nutritional expert, you can learn new skills about nutrients and what your body needs to function at its most effective.

  • Behavioral counseling:

    Working on weight loss is about more than just tackling exercise and eating; it’s also about addressing the mental components. People who are overweight are at higher risk of eating disorders, depression, and anxiety. Our clinical behavioral counseling can help you address these issues and develop a healthy relationship with exercise, food, and your body.

  • Prescription weight loss drugs:

    If you’re doing all the right things for your body but need some additional assistance, our team can evaluate whether prescription weight loss drugs would be right for your situation.

At Doctor for Life, our team has the skills and medical experience necessary to approach medical weight loss holistically, helping you cultivate a healthy lifestyle that lasts.
