Medical weight management
Our specially trained physician and staff work one-on-one with people who would like to learn how to lose or manage their weight through diet and exercise and with drug therapy if indicated. James Donovan, MD of Miller Creek Medical Clinic helps patients understand the connection between food and exercise and the role medications can play in a comprehensive weight loss program.
For individuals who meet medical criteria, Jay Lenz, MD of St. Luke’s Pavilion Surgical Associates offers gastric bypass surgery, gastric banding surgery and more. Dr. Lenz and the clinic staff help qualified individuals to discover lifestyle changes that may accompany weight loss with the assistance of surgery.
