Weight Loss Management Program
The Foothills Weight Loss Management Program is a medically-supervised program to help individuals lose weight and achieve good health. We offer personalized planning and private coaching that includes nutritional education and support, meal advice, as well as a physical activity plan and ongoing accountability and support. When appropriate, medications may be prescribed to assist in appetite suppression and promote further weight loss.
Who is the program for?
The Program is designed for individuals who may need to shed extra pounds to prepare for a procedure such as bariatric or orthopedic surgery. It is also for those with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or more who desire a non-surgical weight loss solution.
The Foothills Weight Loss Management Program is headed up by certified Family Nurse Practitioner Wendy Heidel, FNP, and overseen by Bariatric Surgeon Dr. Mark Colquitt, MD, FACS, FASMBS.
Treatment is set up on a month-to-month basis. In person and virtual appointments are both available. The Program is covered by most insurance plans.
