Medically Supervised Weight Loss Programs

Expert guidance to a healthier you.

Not all of our patients are mentally or physically ready for a surgical weight loss procedure. Some are unsure about the decision, while others may be 20-30 pounds from meeting the criteria for weight loss surgery. Weight loss is a team effort, and we believe in taking each step with you. That’s why we offer a medically supervised weight loss program to guide you through the journey.

The Bariatric Experts team is comprised of medical professionals including Dr. Scott Stowers and Dr. Randy Wright, nurse practitioner Ann Soliman, and dietitian Michelle Pollock – who are all dedicated to creating a goal-oriented, medically supervised medical weight loss program that’s catered to you. Using a combination of structured food choices, oral medications and injectable medications, our program is designed to provide proven medically managed weight loss guidance so you can reach your goals. With the assistance of our doctor-led weight management program, patients can see healthier results in their journey and, with even modest reductions in weight, will experience improvements in health and comorbid conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes.

Changing the game. Changing your life.

The Bariatric Experts’ medically managed weight loss plan is a game changer for many reasons. First, our doctors are highly skilled in Bariatric treatments – in fact, it’s all we do. The steps we outline are heavily researched and proven to be more effective and safer than any fad diet. We not only talk the talk, we’ve walked the walk, as many of our staff members are bariatric patients themselves and are dedicated to making the same positive changes in your life.

As many of our patients know, weight plays a huge role in the health of our bodies. Comorbidities are not uncommon with obesity, so it’s even more important to follow a medically supervised weight loss regimen where trained physicians, dietitians and nutritionists can guide you to a successful and healthier outcome.

Our in-house finance specialists are available with expert guidance on insurance and payment options.

What is "Medically Supervised" Weight Loss Program?

Many people with weight loss struggles move from diet to diet without real long-lasting success. The difference in our plan is a personalized approach backed by a full team of bariatric experts with solutions at every stage of the journey. Dr. Scott Stowers and Dr. Randy Wright along with our Nurse Practitioner, Ann Soliman set up unique programs for each patient that are specifically catered to address individual mental and physical challenges that so often create barriers to losing weight and keeping it off.

  • The first step is a medical assessment and evaluation of health and readiness for weight loss performed by our medical professionals. This face-to-face consultation and testing are critical to establishing a personal relationship and we will spend as much time as needed to thoroughly assess and discuss your weight loss needs.
    • The medical testing includes but not limited to:
      • A thorough medical exam
      • Cardiac testing
      • Laboratory testing/urine testing

  • Step two is to review our findings and discuss options that are best suited for your lifestyle. Together, we will create a plan that is achievable for weight loss success. The initial evaluation will include a medically guided behavior modification plan that includes:
    • Realistic goal setting
    • Multi-phase planning
    • Support group access

  • We then determine what type of medical intervention is appropriate to assist in the weight loss process including but not limited to:
    • Oral medication
    • Injectable medication
    • Recommended diet regimens
      • Portion control
      • Low calorie options
      • Low Carb/high menu
      • Ketogenic diet options
      • Intermittent fasting

  • No weight loss program is successful without an exercise plan. However, a lot of exercise plans are unrealistic given the lifestyle and physical limitations of patients. We map out a plan together that fits your lifestyle, starts slowly and builds up to help you achieve and sustain your goals.
  • What makes us different is that a majority of the professionals in our office who work with you have overcome weight loss issues and practice a healthy lifestyle each and every day. We know the effort that it takes to shed the weight and to keep it off. There is nothing that you may struggle with that we have not struggled with as well. We are here for you each step of the way and we schedule face to face appointments every 4 weeks to help you be successful and sustain the program that we have laid out.
  • Lastly, you will be successful. If you follow the plan and become a partner in weight loss success with us, you will reach your goals! Call us today at 940-800-2565 and ask any questions you may have about our program.
