Medical Weight Loss

Patients who participate in medical weight loss services at Iowa Weight Loss Specialists have access to mental health services within the clinic. Patients may initiate services or may be referred by a medical weight loss provider.

What to Expect

As part of our approach to comprehensive care, your medical weight loss provider may make a referral for mental health care. The medical weight loss provider and licensed mental health clinician work together to create and implement unique treatment plans that best suit patient needs and promote optimal patient outcomes.

  • Resolving emotional/barriers to weight management
  • Establishing healthy patterns of eating
