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.

Everything was great.

The weight management team is wonderful in every way, including answering my mychart email questions immediately. The clerks, however, seem bored or unhappy with their jobs overall. They wait for you to get their attention rather than looking up to greet you.

My experiences with the weight loss clinic have been extremely positive. This is a difficult issue and they have treated me with respect and dignity. Kristy is great, the nurses/PCT's are great. They spend time with me explaining things and giving me options that work for me. It is great. And the results so far have been very positive.
