Weight Loss Q & A

What can I expect from a weight-loss consultation?

Dr. Southerland sits with you in a judgment-free environment to review your medical history and lifestyle choices that have resulted in excess weight. She discusses your weight-loss goals and your options for achieving an ideal weight.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Southerland takes as much time as you need to ensure you feel relaxed and comfortable.

In addition to an in-depth discussion, Dr. Southerland takes important measurements, including your current weight and body mass index (BMI). She may perform additional testing to determine if your weight gain relates to an underlying medical condition.

What if a medical condition contributes to my weight gain?

If you experience sudden, unexplained weight gain, Dr. Southerland may order thyroid testing and other blood work to identify potential problems.

She can create a custom treatment plan to address the medical condition first, before recommending appropriate weight-loss solutions.

Which weight-loss solutions are right for me?

Dr. Southerland can determine the best weight-loss solutions for you based on your goals and overall health. She may first recommend making necessary lifestyle changes, including improving your diet and boosting your daily physical activities.

As a certified health coach, Dr. Southerland can work with you at your own pace to find what weight-loss options are most effective at keeping your motivated to reach your goals.

Dr. Southerland is also a certified personal trainer and can work with you to safely and effectively improve your physical fitness in an effort to maintain a healthy weight.

What are the benefits of medically supervised weight loss?

The primary benefit of working with Dr. Southerland toward your weight-loss goals is her ability to motivate you to live your best life. She understands that change doesn’t happen overnight and provides the steady, consistent encouragement you need to achieve your goals and learn what’s best for your health along the way.

Another benefit of medically supervised weight loss is the focused medical attention you receive from Dr. Southerland throughout your treatment. She can identify possible medical reasons why you struggle to maintain a healthy weight and address those issues using the latest diagnostic resources and treatment options.
