Your Specialists at Physician Weight Partners

Meet Your Partners in Health

As doctors specializing in obesity medicine, we understand how challenging it can be to lose and maintain weight. Excess weight is not your fault. Obesity is a chronic medical condition, and similar to other medical conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure, it requires a comprehensive approach to treatment. We use evidence-based clinical practices to guide your weight loss journey to improve your health, wellness, and longevity. We understand that many factors contribute to weight and that each patient will require an individualized, unique approach to weight loss. We promise to approach your care in a compassionate and judgment-free manner.

Where Health and Weight Meet

More Than Your Doctors, We ARE Your Partners

Meet the Team
Why Naturopathy

Why Physician Weight Management?

Medical Assessment and Intake

We perform in-depth weight-related history and physical exams, review and order labs as appropriate, perform body metrics to identify causes of excess weight, and screen for medical conditions related to weight. Please expect to spend extended time in your first two sessions.

Nutrition Counseling

The best nutrition plan is one that can be maintained long-term. Each nutrition plan is individually designed for your situation. We offer counseling on healthy eating, ketogenic, and many other diets. Meal replacement options and group support sessions are also available.

Physical Activity Prescription

We work on safely implementing movement and physical activity to improve your fitness, strength, and overall health. While not a primary factor in weight loss, physical activity is necessary to prevent weight regain and improve long-term mortality regardless of weight.

Behavioral Change

We help to identify and remove barriers to change and improve our patients’ relationship with food. Our physicians are also certified in primary care psychiatry and have experience treating basic mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, and eating disorders, which can contribute to excess weight.

Medications

Anti-obesity medications are safe and effective weight loss tools that help when combined with lifestyle and nutrition modifications. They help curb appetite and food cravings and can improve the sensation of fullness. We can prescribe all classes of anti-obesity medications including, but not limited to stimulants, semaglutide (Ozempic/Wegovy), and tirzepitide (Mounjaro/Zepbound) .

Bariatrics

As long-time physicians in the greater Chicago area, we leverage established relationships with local bariatric surgery specialists. We can coordinate pre-bariatric surgery counseling, treatment, and medication management if your insurance requires it.

Testimonials
