WellSpan Medical Weight Management

WellSpan Medical Weight Management

Medical Weight Management (Children)

Over the past 30 years, the rate of obesity in the United States has more than doubled for preschoolers and adolescents, and it has more than tripled for children ages 6 to 11. We recognize the magnitude of the issue and have developed a specialized program for overweight adolescents and children. Together our pediatric physician and dietician work closely with children and parents to develop a plan that focuses on diet, exercise and behavior. Through the program, target weight goals are established. Patients are asked to come with a physician referral and growth chart to aid in assessment and treatment.

About the provider search

This search will provide you with WellSpan Medical Group and Northern Lancaster County (Ephrata) Medical Group primary care physicians and specialists. If we don’t have a WellSpan Medical Group physician to meet your criteria, the search will expand to include community physicians who partner with WellSpan Medical Group physicians through the WellSpan Provider Network or provide care to patients on the Medical Staffs of WellSpan’s Hospitals.
