Our Approach

Stop beating yourself up.  It’s not YOUR fault.  Of course you’ve failed in the past.  You’ve never had the right tools, the right information and the right guidance to the make the change happen. Weight loss can be easy but keeping it off for a lifetime is where most people fail.  The great news, is Medical Weight Loss @ the Village provides a completely unique scientific approach for weight loss that lasts a lifetime. Unlike other programs, you will work one on one in a private setting with Dr. Shawn McCarty, a physician who is board certified in obesity medicine.  

MWL@V recognizes that obesity is caused by a variety of factors:

  • The western diet consisting of calorically dense food that is nutritionally deficient
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Environmental factors – urban living
  • Unrecognized health conditions
  • Side effect of medications
  • Occupational – desk work
  • Psychiatric disease
  • Social stress – financial/emotional

That’s why the MWL@V approach includes:

  • A caring and supportive staff
  • Individualized weight loss plans with achievable goals
  • Dietary programs that are nutritionally balanced
  • When appropriate, medications that are approved for both safety and effectiveness
  • Ongoing, non-judgmental monitoring, collaboration and encouragement
  • Instruction on life style and activity to help you stay near your ideal body weight after you have reached your goal
