Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

Like diabetes and high blood pressure (hypertension), obesity is a disease that requires ongoing medical management. Most commercial weight-loss programs don’t work because they don’t consider your needs. You may lose the weight, but keeping it off can be difficult.

With medical weight loss, you get a plan tailored to meet your particular and unique needs. Dr. Riley’s medical weight-loss plan takes into consideration your medical history, body composition, and lifestyle and helps you make the necessary changes for long-term success.

How does MetTrimMD work?

MetTrimMD is the medical weight-loss program Dr. Riley uses at CornerstoneMD. With Dr. Riley’s ongoing care and monitoring, you can safely lose up to 50 pounds in 90 days.*

Before designing your tailored program, Dr. Riley completes a comprehensive evaluation that includes a physical exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your lifestyle and habits. She also conducts a complete body analysis.

Based on the information gathered, Dr. Riley develops your personalized weight-loss plan, which includes:

  • A hunger-controlling meal plan
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Tools to support behavior modification

To help you stay on track, Dr. Riley schedules regular follow-ups to monitor your progress, discuss your obstacles, and adjust your plan as needed. She also conducts blood work to follow your health changes.

Once you’ve reached your target weight, Dr. Riley provides a weight-maintenance plan to help you keep the pounds off. She also has an open door policy and provides ongoing support when you need it.
