What Is a Medical Weight Loss Program?
Losing weight with diet and exercise alone may not generate the results some patients desire. In many cases, weight gain is due to hormonal imbalances or metabolic factors. Frisco, TX family nurse practitioner Katherine Johnson knows exactly how difficult living with weight gain can be. She successfully lost over 60 pounds and uses an individualized, metabolic approach to helping her patients achieve their own weight loss goals. Medically supervised weight loss programs are designed to address health issues that contribute to weight gain. If you are struggling with your weight, schedule a visit with Katherine at Johnson Family Medical, and learn how you can take back your body, health, and confidence!
