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.
