Weight loss services
If you or your primary care provider feels you need more comprehensive help with weight management, you can schedule an appointment at a Novant Health weight loss clinic.
Our care teams at these clinics use nutrition counseling, fitness training and cognitive behavioral therapy to help you recognize and address obstacles that may have held you back in the past. We can help you determine what costs your health plan will cover, and coordinate with your primary care provider, specialist or surgeon to ensure you get the help you need whether your goal is to qualify for surgery or improve or reverse a medical condition.
