How are we different than other weight loss clinics?
WE SPEND MORE TIME WITH EACH PATIENT.
Finding the underlying issues that have prevented you from achieving and maintaining weight loss and wellness and addressing them with practical, permanent solutions can take time. So we spend around 60 minutes with each new patient and 30 minutes with established patients at follow-up visits.
WE OFFER PRACTICAL, LIFE-LONG WEIGHT LOSS SOLUTIONS.
For long-term success, you need a weight loss program that works for you long after you are no longer using our services. We teach you how to be successful on your own, not to be dependent on us.
WE WANT TO IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH, NOT JUST YOUR WAIST LINE.
At every visit you will see our medical provider who can medically treat obesity as well as ailments that may be causing or be caused by obesity such as high blood pressure, diabetes, hypothyroidism, acid reflux, high cholesterol, metabolic syndrome, depression, and anxiety.
WE ARE AFFORDABLE FOR ALL.
We want you to lose pounds, not dollars. We accept insurance and also offer affordable self-pay rates for our services. Additionally, we offer a limited financial assistance fund for those who can’t afford our self-pay rates. We don’t want an inability to pay to stand in the way of you becoming healthy!
WE DO NOT REQUIRE A COMMITMENT OR PURCHASE OF A PRE-PAID PACKAGE.
At your initial and following visits we will make recommendations and offer resources that we believe will help you lose weight and improve your health but none are required or “pushed” on you. You can take advantage of as many or as few of the services that we offer at any time for as long as you’d like.
WE ARE A FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATION.
We believe that God cares for you and He wants you to be spiritually, emotionally, and physically well. And this belief shapes how we treat you—we genuinely want the same for you!
“Coming to Branches Weight Loss and Wellness has been one of the best decisions of my life. I wanted to take back my life—to start enjoying my life again. I was always the person sitting on the sideline because I did not feel confident in myself. I desperately wanted that to change, so I made an appointment with Branches. I didn’t think I would keep the meeting but sometimes the scariest steps end up being the best steps you can ever take. I now have a support system with Branches— weekly weigh-ins, regular office visits with the medical provider. Everyone is there to support me. I have tried to lose weight before but never succeeded because I would get frustrated with measuring everything yet not seeing any progress. At Branches, within the first 4 months, I lost over 50 pounds, and though the weight-loss number is encouraging, the things I have been able to accomplish are far better. I can walk without being out of breath; I can go shopping without having to find somewhere to sit and rest; I can sing in my church choir without counting down the minutes until I can sit down again. I recently went to my first baseball game… there was a lot of walking!!! The amount of confidence and happiness I have found since starting Branches is indescribable. I never thought I would enjoy eating healthy this much, but I honestly am enjoying my food more now than I was before I started this journey. If you are considering taking the first step, do it, take back your life!” — Jennifer
