Philosophy Of Care

My philosophy of care is based on the principles of whole health, mutual respect, and collaboration. It is important to me to build a trusting relationship with my clients in order to successfully achieve their health goals. Providing the right education and tools to empower my clients to create healthy habits, not restrictions, is of key importance. In regards to weight management, prevention and wellness are at the foundation to any treatment plan mutually devised at the Edward Weight Loss Clinic.

Kristine is an amazing provider. She is easy to talk to, listens to any issues or questions I have and always provides a thorough explanation. She is the only provider who has been able to help me achieve and maintain my weight loss goal of 70 pounds without surgery. Not once have I ever felt shame or guilt while in her care.

I see Kristine Warnes as part of my weight loss journey. My visits with her are the standard check-ins about progress. She is wonderful and has made the process much easier. She gives great advice and educational tools. She knows my goal is to make sustainable changes in my lifestyle to keep the weight off long-term. When I worry that I'm not losing fast enough, she puts things into perspective for me about how far I've really come. With her assistance, I've lost 40 pounds since August.
