The company has grown quickly because physicians are so impressed with the results their patients get, they tell other physicians. It's as simple as that.
Tarrytown, NY (PRWEB) October 23, 2009
Be-Thin, Inc, the largest network of weight loss physicians in the US, announces the opening of its 250th center in 3 years of operation. Andy Orlander, VP of Business Development, says the success of the company is well deserved. "The company has grown quickly because physicians are so impressed with the results their patients get, they tell other physicians. It's as simple as that."
With obesity on the rise, Orlander explains that it is natural for physicians to take over this space. "Physicians are much more qualified to treat obesity than employees of commercial weight loss programs. When a patient loses a great deal of weight, it is very likely to see their need for certain prescription medications decrease. Doctors need to re-assess the patient's medication levels and lower the dosage. This is a huge benefit to the patient from an overall health view as well as from a cost perspective."
Physicians in the network have specialized training in bariatric medicine (weight loss medicine), nutrition and diet. CMWL's Weight loss programs are very effective because they are personalized and based on a person's unique metabolism. Individualized counseling is an important part of the program. "Physicians are very involved in counseling the patients to make sure they know how to maintain the weight loss over time, explains Orlander. "Keeping weight off is the most important aspect of the program. The doctors really care about long term results.
