About Wolfson Weight Loss & Wellness
Our program is different because we target the mind-body connection and how its disruption is the cause of obesity.
We know there is no “one size fits all approach” as individuals respond differently to therapies.
Therefore, at Wolfson Weight Loss & Wellness, we individualize therapies to target different mechanisms combining various anti-obesity medications with customized diets and exercise programs.
Our experienced team will be with you every step of the way.
