About Our Practice

Our dedicated team, led by board-certified pediatricians with expertise in childhood weight management, believes every child has the potential to achieve a healthy weight and life-long wellness.  The practice supports all their patients towards reaching this goal by using a personalized and compassionate family-based approach.  We believe that involving the family in lifestyle changes is essential to the behavior change process for a child.

Many complex factors such as genetics and biology, the environment, and individual behaviors can contribute to excess weight.  To understand the unique components for your child, our team will perform a comprehensive assessment and work to develop a personalized treatment plan based on your child’s needs.
