At the Northwell Health Center for Weight Management, our Comprehensive Weight Management Program approaches weight loss with a humanistic and empathetic focus on behavioral strategies to optimize our patients’ overall health and quality of life. Our aim is to help adults lead healthier, more productive and longer lives.
At the Center for Weight Management, we offer a multi-disciplinary approach involving medical, psychological and nutritional assessments followed by an individualized treatment plan. Our team consists of a physician, psychologist, and nutritionists who work with each patient to teach goal setting, medically-supervised weight/behavioral management, planning skills, and problem-solving. We strive to strengthen patient coping and behavioral strategies so each individual can learn to focus on self-awareness, quality of life and personal goals.
Our patients’ dignity and self-esteem are always the top priority with the professionals at The Center for Weight Management. With our multi-disciplinary expertise, we are committed to helping our patients overcome barriers every step of the way while our patients work to create lifelong changes to patterns of eating and attitudes about health.
