Our family practice has initiated a preventive medicine focus and we believe that obesity management and a healthy approach to longevity is key for a healthy lifestyle. We have started a followup program to help guide our patients on this path. This is a challenge and we realize our success will start out small, but hopefully we can build from there and our patients will be healthy for it.
