The town of Morrisville NC lies at the heart of the triangle region marked by Raleigh, Durham and Cary. With a population of fewer than 20,000, it’s known locally as an attractive location for businesses and has an active Chamber of Commerce to promote this vision. The town’s close proximity to Durham, NC, enables easy access to LifeStyle Medical Center (LMC), which provides a weight management clinic to Morrisville residents and commuters.
What LifeStyle Medical Center Offers
The purpose of Lifestyle Medical Center is to offer evidence-based, intensive lifestyle intervention and nutrition counseling to patients. With specialized, preventive healthcare services and weight loss programs, we give patients the opportunity to control their weight the healthy way and improve their chronic disease management.
Why Weight Loss is Important
When they discover the benefits of weight loss, Morrisville patients are often overjoyed to find they no longer need the same level of medication as they did previously. Conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and high levels of cholesterol are fueled by obesity and an unhealthy lifestyle. It’s challenging for patients to break the cycle without adequate support and motivation, but for those who want to achieve a healthier body and mind, it’s essential to eat more of the right foods and do more exercise.
Beating the Odds
The range of services offered by LMC at our weight management clinic gives Morrisville patients a fresh chance to beat the odds. These include:
- Diet and lifestyle assessments
- Screening procedures and blood tests
- Customized weight loss programs that include diet and exercise, with medication if appropriate
- Personalized treatment plans for chronic conditions
All services are offered on an outpatient basis at our Durham weight management clinic. Morrisville patients can make the short 15-20 minute trip to our location during an extended lunch hour or after the workday is over.
