Have you struggled with your weight?  Perhaps for a long time?  Or even, for most of your life?

YOU ARE NOT ALONE.  Weight issues plague at least 65% of Americans. 

Obesity is a disease.

Obesity is not a personal failure or lack of willpower.  It’s a chronic medical disease.  A disease with life-threatening complications.  As such, it needs to be treated by a qualified medical doctor. 

Welcome to South Sound Preventive Medicine, LLC.  We are the South Sound’s only medical practice devoted entirely to bariatric (weight management) medicine.  We provide a comprehensive, non-surgical approach to the treatment of obesity.  Our program is based in medical science, not fads or fad dieting.

There is much more to weight loss than the traditional advice to “eat less and exercise more.” Each person is unique, and advice given to one person may not be effective for another person.  That’s why a thorough medical workup is needed.  We will treat your disease individually and compassionately.

Your Long-Term Health

Because of the body’s programming, keeping excess weight off is often more challenging than losing weight.  Yet preserving your weight loss is paramount to achieving long-term health.  To assist you, our program offers a comprehensive, research-based maintenance program.  We encourage you to work with us on a long-term basis, so that you remain successful for the rest of your life.
