Conditions Treated

Dr. Tague says..

My education in public health has provided me an excellent background for assisting patients in improved health through nutrition and lifestyle changes. As a physician, I also have access to medical and laboratory approaches to the many causes of unwanted weight gain. Modern medical treatments can also be powerful tools in the battle against unwanted weight. Comprehensive treatment plans are always used as we develop strategies towards Optimum Health for each patient.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Tague says...

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.
