The key difference between Virginia Weight & Wellness and other programs, is that we are not a "weight loss clinic," but rather we are Richmond's only "medical practice" that is 100% dedicated to weight management and weight related medical conditions. We focus on obesity and weight gain as a chronic disease instead of a short term, unrealistic diet plan. We evaluate your medical factors, medical conditions, and medications that you may be taking that may be contributing to your weight gain or preventing your weight loss.
From your first visit onwards we provide realistic, maintainable, practical recommendations that are sustainable for the long term. We don't just tell you what to do, but we teach you why each recommendation is important and necessary, and we teach you why and how to modify things to attain the results you are seeking.
Successful long term weight loss goes far beyond an extreme diet, appetite suppressant, or injection, and often weight changes are related to other medical conditions you have, and limited by medications that you are already taking.
