Over one third of adults in the United States are obese. Obesity is an epidemic that is related to many of the leading causes of preventable death in our country. At Pelican Family Medicine, we can provide counseling and set up a personalized diet and exercise plan to get you to a healthy weight. We will help you set realistic goals and help you challenge yourself to get in shape. We support natural, gradual weight loss. In cases where extreme weight loss is needed, we may discuss surgical options and determine if you are a candidate for those procedures.
