Doctors' Weight Management Program

In its 30th Year

The Doctors’ Weight Management Program at Sansum Clinic is celebrating 30 years of successful weight loss. The medically supervised program (phone, fax, hours, directions) is a behavioral weight management program that addresses obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes (and pre-diabetes), metabolic syndrome, joint pain and other illnesses and conditions associated with weight management and obesity. The program uses HMR Weight Management’s meal replacements (entrees, shakes, cereal, soup, pudding, bars) as the foundation of the diet.

HMR is the leading provider of medically-based weight management programs in clinics, hospitals and major medical centers throughout the country. Sansum Clinic is recognized by HMR as a Gold Standard Program, achieving the highest compliance and success of all HMR programs.

“HMR Programs excel at providing the jump start many people need when beginning a healthier lifestyle program,” says Donna Gill, Manager of the Doctors’ Weight Management Program at Sansum Clinic. “A common misconception is that losing weight quickly is not healthy, not sustainable, and will just lead to future weight re-gain,” adds Gill.  “To the contrary, numerous clinical studies demonstrate that following a lifestyle change program which promotes fast initial weight loss can result in better long-term success.”

When you’re ready to start or re-start your 2016 resolution, give us a call or sign up to attend a free, no obligation Orientation session. We can help you reach your goals in a world where it’s becoming increasingly difficult to successfully manage your weight.
