My professional passion is Optimum Health for those seeking weight loss and improved nutrition. Excellent health is only possible if weight is controlled and if nutrition is excellent. These truths led me to found the Center for Nutrition and Preventive Medicine, P.A. in 1996. Since that time I have counseled and supported over 20,000 patients on their journey towards weight loss and health. My education and experience, along with that of my professional team, sets us apart from weight loss franchises or diet clinics. You will appreciate our professional, compassionate, and thoughtful approach towards your improved health. If you or a loved one have struggled with unwanted weight gain, we can help. Give our office a call to set up an informative and educational consultation with one of our friendly and supportive staff. Sincerely, Rick Tague, M.D., M.P.H.

Dr. Tague's Care Philosophy
My goal is to help patients achieve optimum health through weight control and excellent nutrition.Achieving these goals is often challenged by genetic and environmental influences, including stress. By using the power of modern treatment strategies, individualized metabolism and weight goals become achievable. By carefully evaluating the previous challenges and current status of each patient, strategies can be developed. Then a plan is designed and implemented that is personalized for maximum outcome. My staff (MD's, registered dietitians, nurse practitioners, nutritionists, and others) and I provide support and modify the plan as needed throughout the journey toward optimum health.
