About the Program

Our Weight Loss Program is Different
The Doctors' Weight Management Program is a medically sound and effective behavioral weight-loss program. It was developed by behavioral psychologist Dr. Lawrence Stifler, Ph.D. and is supervised by a team of Sansum Clinic providers, headed up by Christopher Donner, MD, FACP, FACE.

Weight Loss Professionals
Our staff is comprised of healthcare professionals with expertise and experience in implementing high quality programs in behavioral medicine. Our goal is to help you lose weight while teaching you the skills you need to manage your weight successfully long-term.

Weight Loss and Dieting
All of our weight loss options use high-quality nutritional meal replacements. Mandatory weekly group classes work on strategies to stay focused and problem solve your days and weeks to keep you losing weight. Participants have a health coach to help them set goals and reach them through a structure of personal accountability and follow-up.

Weight Loss Program Benefits
Those enrolled in the Doctors' Weight Management Program can experience significant improvement in their health. Most patients with high blood pressure or diabetes are able to reduce or eliminate medications, and patients can dramatically reduce their risk of heart disease and other weight related conditions.
