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 comprehensive history, labs, and risk factors, 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.
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.
If you have arthritis, you see a rheumatologist. If you have a heart problem, you see a cardiologist. If you need an appendectomy, you see a surgeon. There are multiple specialists in the field of medicine. Dr. Parker has undergone rigorous training to become a weight loss specialist. He is board-certified in obesity medicine and in managing the care of those with excess weight. Practicing in the Shoals since 2014, he has helped countless patients meet their weight loss goals.
Whether you’re looking to lose a few pounds to 100+, we can help. Working alongside the physician and a dedicated, professional team, Parker Medical Weight Loss can help you meet your weight loss goals, manage your health, and maintain the results.
