Weight Management and Lifestyle improvement program

 

FOR THOSE PATIENTS AGES 16 TO 60 WHO NEED TO
LOSE BETWEEN
16 AND 60 LBS.

Paul R. Ehrmann, D.O.

 

 

 TESTIMONIALS:

"I started the H.E.A.L. program with Dr. Paul two months ago and I have lost over 40 lbs. The program has been life-changing for me already. I had bad neuropathy in my leg, which is gone now. I have more energy, I'm not tired all the time anymore, and I feel great! I was hesitant about starting the program, because I've tried weight loss programs in the past and they haven't worked for me.  I decided to try it and just take it one day at a time. After a few weeks on the program, I realized I had made a real lifestyle change. What makes this program work for me is that it's not about any gimmicks or about starving myself. It's simply about learning how to eat healthier. I also like that it's backed up by Dr. Paul's medical expertise. He's there to address any health concerns. I can be confident I am improving my health, not just losing weight. I really can't say enough about how great the program has been for me. I would just encourage anyone who is thinking about making a change for a healthier life to give it a try!"

"I survived the holidays without a weight gain (206 lbs today).  A remarkable number of people have recognized my change in size and are curious as to how it was done.  I have told them all the wonders of protein and to see doctors first before they do anything. Without reservation, I endorse Dr. Paul’s Health Education and Living Weight Management Program."

 

PROTOCOL AND PRICING 

 

WHY H.E.A.L.?

We recognize that many of our patients have tried different approaches and have not worked in the long run.  Here are some key points:

·         CONTINUITY
As your Family Doctor, there is continuity.  We will attempt to teach, support and maintain a healthy lifestyle as a  long term strategy throughout your life.  As primary care physicians, we feel we are in the best position to help deliver this to you because of our connection to you and your family that often cover a lifetime.

·         CONTENT
I have been using High Protein/Low Carbohydrate/Hi Fiber diets our patients for over two decades. It works and can be sustained with some modification!  Most patients have been able to adapt to this way of eating at inception and modification if needed once satisfactory weight loss is achieved.

No supplements.

Limited use of Medication and only considered after initial induction weight loss, if needed.

Research shows that 60% of weight problems originate from emotional triggers.  If this could be holding you back from successfully losing weight now and in the past, our office works with therapist Corinne Rogers, PsyD, LP who has special training in this area that may be of help if desired.  

·        COST
See our dashboard below.  We arrived at these costs by taking all the out of pocket annual costs of the available commercial and institutional programs and then took 30% off and provided terms and finally compared that cost to our normal separate charges for said procedure or office visit.  See our dashboard below for more information.

·        COMMITMENT
Dr. Paul has received numerous awards for his work with overweight children and adults and is passionate and dedicated to helping you see this through.

WHO IS THIS FOR?
A quick ballpark way to determine if you are a candidate is take your height in inches divide by 2 and if your waist size is more than that, you can benefit from HEAL

Example:

72 inches height/2=your waist size should be less than 36..if more,  than you are probably overweight or obese.
