Multidisciplinary Obesity Care Team Members

An effective weight management program requires a multidisciplinary approach tailored to everyone’s unique needs. A team of dedicated professionals work collaboratively to provide comprehensive care and support for individuals struggling with obesity.

Your primary care provider is often the first point of contact in managing obesity. They play a crucial role in assessing your overall health, identifying risk factors, and coordinating your care with other specialists as needed.

Your primary care provider may not always be a physician. Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners work closely with physicians to deliver high-quality care and support to patients. They perform physical exams, order tests, prescribe medications, and provide education and counseling. PAs and NPs play a vital role in ensuring continuity of care and are available to address any questions or concerns you may have throughout your journey.
