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 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.

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!
