Weight Management

What is weight management?

Weight management is one of the wellness services Dr. Masterson offers to optimize your health and well-being. Getting to and maintaining a healthy weight is one of the best things you can do to improve your current health and prevent future health problems. 

However, when it comes to dropping those unwanted pounds, no single method works for all. With her weight management program, Dr. Masterson develops a personalized plan that matches your individual goals and lifestyle so that you can lose the weight and keep it off. 

What can I expect from a weight management program?

You can expect compassionate and supportive care from Dr. Masterson’s weight management program. She understands the struggles many people face when it comes to weight management and is excited to take the journey with you.

To create your personalized plan, Dr. Masterson conducts an in-depth initial evaluation. During your evaluation, she asks detailed questions about your weight, including your weight goals, the types of diets you’ve tried in the past, and the obstacles that keep you from reaching or staying at your goal weight.

She reviews your medical and gynecological history, your usual eating and exercise habits, and your daily stresses. Dr. Masterson also conducts a physical exam and may run lab work to confirm or rule out a medical condition that may be contributing to your weight struggles. 

Based on the information provided, Dr. Masterson designs your personalized weight-management plan. She even creates plans for specific health conditions like diabetes and hypertension. 

Dr. Masterson schedules regular follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, cheer on your successes, and help you navigate your way through setbacks. 

What are some of the weight management tools?

Dr. Masterson takes a holistic approach to health and wellness. When it comes to weight management, she uses many tools to help you reach your weight goals, including weight loss medications and supplements. 

Dr. Masterson also uses Diet ID™, which is a weight loss and wellness coaching program that connects to your Fitbit, Apple Watch, or other device to help you stay on track.

She also offers intravenous (IV) therapy and vitamin shots to boost energy and restore nutrient balance.
