Weight Management & Lifestyle Center

Lose weight with the support of an expert medical team.

If you have tried other programs and diets without success, there may be a simple reason why: many weight loss programs expect you to do it on your own. Without oversight. Without support. And without a doctor.

Highland’s Weight Management and Lifestyle Center is different. Here, you get the benefit of medical oversight from a specialist physician, individual coaching from a registered dietitian, and access to tailored behavioral health and physical activity programs.
