Medical Weight Loss & Management
At Favia Primary Care in Algonquin, Illinois, we understand how difficult it is to lose weight. Who hasn’t tried a diet that promised immediate results, only to fail to lose the pounds or regain them later?
Sometimes, despite your best efforts, weight management can be a real struggle due to genetics, medical issues such as hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, steroid treatments, and menopause, or as a side-effect of the medications you take. It can be downright disheartening.
But we don’t want you to give up hope. Achieving your weight-loss goals is possible, with physician-supervised weight management – and we’ll ensure you stay healthy in the process.
Here’s how it works: Dr. Philip Favia will examine your overall health and discuss your health history and weight-loss interests. Together, you and he will identify weight-loss goals that are practical and appropriate for you and then select the best methods to reach those goals. Dr. Favia will monitor your progress and evaluate your health as you progress through the program.
