Weight Loss

It’s not all about willpower…It’s not a character flaw.

We gain weight for all kinds of reasons from emotional issues to medical problems, but no two people have the same story. Dr. Parker understands that. Using a comprehensive approach including lab workup and extensive history, Dr. Parker creates an individualized treatment plan for each patient.

Usually when we need to lose pounds, we try do-it-yourself diets, we join big- name commercialized programs, or we put in extra time at the gym. While these things may offer a short-term benefit of some weight loss, they fall short. Dr. Parker’s comprehensive approach involves nutrition, lifestyle change, appetite control, accountability, and a maintenance plan with long-term follow up. He often utilizes weight loss medications and offers the tools needed to make lifestyle changes that result in weight loss.

Parker Medical Weight Loss is a premier, private medical weight loss clinic drawing patients from all over the South and even farther parts of the country. Under Dr. Parker’s supervision, our group of nurse practitioners, nurses, medical assistants, administrators, and educators treat patients with the highest level of respect and esteem. While there is, unfairly and unfortunately, often a shame associated with excess weight, our goal is the exact opposite. We are here to walk alongside you. We are here to finally shed light and give answers on the struggle with weight.

Obesity is a chronic disease just like high blood pressure or high cholesterol. Obesity can shorten the lifespan and can lead to as many as 236 other medical problems –13 of which are types of cancer. It’s been said that obesity is the greatest obstacle facing modern medicine. We need to treat obesity seriously.

Dr. Parker is board-certified in obesity by the American Board of Obesity Medicine. A graduate of the esteemed Blackburn obesity course at Harvard Medical School and certified in professional obesity education by the World Obesity Federation, Dr. Parker has undergone rigorous training to become a weight loss specialist. Practicing in the Shoals since 2014, he has helped countless patients meet their weight loss and medical goals.

I used to have daily pain in my hips, feet, and lower back that has vanished. I have energy that I haven’t had in 20 years. I’m ready to have a great summer working outdoors in my garden and actually have the stamina to do what I’d almost given up! Thank you for your help and giving me the tools to be successful.

I can’t believe I hit the 80 pound mark! I started in a size 16 jeans, and now I am down to a size 4. I also am 5 pounds from hitting my goal weight--which is what I weighed the day I graduated high school. All the credit goes to God. Thank y’all for being the most supportive team!
