Medical Weight Loss

 “Walk with me – a journey to a life transformed.”

Lisa Goularte, DO

For those who are not interested in weight loss surgery, we also offer a medical weight loss program.

As part of the St. Francis Health Medical Weight Loss program, you will be empowered to achieve optimal wellness, because we recognize there is more to losing weight than just a diet. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive and holistic approach to weight loss by utilizing a five-pillar program that includes nutrition, movement, self-awareness, medication and education. Our weight loss program also includes recreation therapy services to help you achieve your goals through the use of individualized assessments, planned activities and evaluations – all designed to treat the entire person – mind, body, and soul.
