Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tague "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."
