What Physicians Are Saying

I send my patients [to the Medical Weight Management Program] who have tried other programs and failed or gained the weight back. The program is designed for patients who are serious about losing weight. It is the next best thing to bariatric surgery.

Internal Medicine Physician
Kaiser Permanente San Jose


A major value of our MWM program is the long term support for our members in approaching this chronic condition. They are in a supportive, yet scientifically based program with the goal of healthy outcomes.

What Patients Are Saying

The medical management is something that I think is great. I felt safe doing it.

Beverly - San Jose Kaiser Permanente


The facilitator was absolutely wonderful. They give you the tools and show you how to use them, so you feel prepared when it's time to move from the liquid diet to normal foods again.

Tom - Sacramento Kaiser Permanente


There are a lot of deep reasons for why you eat and are overweight. The leader really helped us work through things.

Trish - Sacramento Kaiser Permanente


We have bonded so much. It was pretty amazing how close we all got. Through good times and bad times we were able to share our stories with each other and leave feeling better. This was far different from anything I'd experienced.

Diane - Fremont Kaiser Permanente
