Obesity is the most common chronic disease in our society. That is why HCHC has taken the steps to provide comprehensive Weight Management and Nutrition Services for our patients and members of our community.
Our goal is to help manage obesity as a chronic disease, and the focus is on patients with a BMI over 30, or over 27 if the patient has comorbidities.
Dr. Sheri Cheung, MD is an American Board of Obesity Medicine Certified Physician, currently accepting new weight-management and nutrition patients.
HCHC’s Weight-Management and Nutrition program focuses on:
- Nutrition counselling,
- Medical management, and
- Behavior modifications (including mindfulness training).
Patients participating in the program have monthly visits with a dietitian-nutritionist and Dr. Cheung to develop a weight-management program that incorporates both nutrition-based and medical interventions, as well as behavior modification practices.
For more information, please call 413-667-3009 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to schedule your or your patient’s initial weight-management consultation.
