Improving Outcomes Through Healthy Living

 

We provide personalized treatment for patients ages 6-18 who have been diagnosed with obesity, hypertension or high cholesterol.  Our providers can help your child lower their blood pressure, lower their blood sugar and reduce their cholesterol through healthy living.  When we focus on a child's cardiovascular health, we can improve health outcomes over their lifespan.

Obesity is a complicated diagnosis that requires specialized education and treatment. Our program is individualized to patient and family needs. All patients are seen every week for the first month of our program. Patients are then seen every other week for months 2-6.  In our visits we discuss topics such as:

        nutrition                                           physical activity                                   sleep

        emotional eating                              stress regulation                                  screen time

Convenient for Families

Because of the time required to make healthy lifestyle changes, we have found that telehealth visits can be just as effective and much more convenient for families.

A patient's initial visit is scheduled in the morning and followup visits are scheduled in the afternoon to accommodate work and school schedules.

Getting Started

Because we are a telehealth clinic, we require a referrals for all patients. A referral includes a copy of a note with a physical exam performed in the last 90 days and any pertinent labwork. Contact your primary care provider to send us a referral.

You can schedule an appointment by clicking on the schedule appointment button
