The WellessenceMD weight management program provides customized, multi-faceted evidenced based approaches which enable patients to reach their healthiest weight. As a board certified obesity medicine specialist, Dr. Nance takes pride in her team's ability to assist the medically complicated patient. We celebrate the fact that many of our patients are able to discontinue insulin and many other diabetes, blood pressure, reflux, and high cholesterol medications over the course of our program. All of our programs address not only nutritional intake but also exercise and behavioral patterns around eating. Through advanced blood tests that measure dangerous lipid molecules, insulin resistance, systemic inflammation, and many metabolic hormones, our team can personalize a weight management plan that will bring the best health outcomes to you.
