Our Team

Our program offers a dedicated staff backed by the resources of The Permanente Medical Group, including over 5,000 physicians and other specialists, so you get the resources and support you need. You'll have an entire multidisciplinary team by your side to help you achieve changes that last.

Experienced physicians and educators will provide you with medical supervision, behavioral and nutritional advice, and weekly group support sessions. Our educators have degrees in nutrition, education, public health, and other related fields. Our Medical Weight Management Program physicians can work with your primary care physician to monitor your progress and track your health care needs as they change throughout the course of the program. Once you've completed the first two phases of the program, your personal weight coach will help you stay motivated and on track.
