Individuals are not successful at weight loss for many reasons. Many people struggle with difficulty sustaining and adhering to a healthy lifestyle. This includes maintaining a calorie deficit diet, participating in frequent exercise, and allowing for adequate time for rest and recovery.

The Medical Weight Loss Clinic at Fluvanna Health & Wellness currently is offering compounded semaglutide and compounded tirzepatide to assist patients with weight loss in addition to life style modifications.

If you have been struggling losing weight and are looking to seek help, you will need to schedule an appointment to be seen in the office. At this appointment, we will gather a thorough history, perform an exam, and do blood work (if you have not had labs done through your primary care office).
