Advanced Weight Loss
The staff at Advanced Weight Loss knows that weight gain and retention is not a one-issue topic– the clinic’s practitioner, Dr. Dale Eubank knows just how much hormones can effect one’s weight first-hand. As a gynecologist, Dr. Eubank saw how women struggle through a myriad of hormone issues that can case problems with gaining or losing weight. As a result, Dr. Eubank created the Advanced Weight Loss Program– a program specifically tailored to each individual’s needs and lifestyle. They can opt in to supplements and vitamin injections to boost weight loss, or simply follow their medically supervised weight loss plan closely. On average, patients lose around 35 pounds in 12 weeks.
