The Center for Metabolic Health is directed by Dr. Thomas W. Clark, MS, MD, FACS who has been a bariatric surgeon since 1994 and knows that surgery is not the only avenue for significant weight loss. Dr. Clark and his staff understand the complex nature of obesity both from a surgical and medical standpoint and are deeply committed to all patients who struggle with weight-related issues. His dynamic team is composed of psychologists, nurse practitioners, certified personal trainers, registered dietitians and licensed wellcoaches (personal wellness coaches). Their expertise, coupled with a sincere desire for patient success, create a warm and motivating environment to ensure long-term weight loss success. The CMH program offers flexible options that make sense financially with medical weight loss programs often costing much less than the cost of lap band surgery in Virginia.
The Center for Metabolic Health has the reputation of being the premier local expert in Virginia for weight management and continues to push the envelope by combining technology, experience and innovation with its personalized programs. "People need more one-on-one time because even if you've lost weight -- even if you've had surgery -- you can easily gain it back if you don't change your behavior," said Dr. Clark.
A large part of the success that Dr. Clark sees in his patients is the result of the positive behavior modification they receive in person and on the website. Dr. Clark's innovative website not only educates but offers people the opportunity to download material directly from the web. Pertinent online weight loss information is updated regularly on their site through blogging, podcasts and online newsletters.
Dr. Clark understands the daily struggles as well as successes of his patients. According to Dr. Clark, one of the most experienced LAP-BAND® surgeons in Virginia, "Life is what we do minute to minute and day to day, not what occurred in the past or what will happen in the future." By providing the comprehensive Center for Metabolic Health experience online, patients are empowered to reach their goals and maintain the encompassing support system whether they are at home, in the office or on the road.
