About Us

Our Story

F.I.T Medical Weight Loss & Optimization was created out of a desire to see a change in healthcare delivery. We recognized the importance of maintaining a healthy weight as we've struggled with unwanted weight gain in the past. Similarly, we found it difficult to adequately guide patients on their weight loss journey with limited time and high patient volume. With the insurance-based timeframes, we feel it is almost impossible to properly educate patients regarding their health, especially if they already have an underlying condition like high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, or heart disease.

We are not looking to serve as primary care providers but to partner with your current primary care provider and help you achieve optimal health. We genuinely care about health and wellness as we live our lives by the same principles we teach our patients. Our appointment times are longer, so we can dig in and figure out the barriers patients face. We are not here to provide a temporary fix nor to mask symptoms. If you are unhappy with your current weight, then the only thing you have to lose is weight! So come and let us help restore your health and wellness by fixing it together!
