Our Advantage


We specialize in the medical treatment of obesity.

We recognize that obesity is a disease, not a lifestyle choice. There are a lot of weight loss programs out there. If you follow almost any one of these, you will likely lose some weight. But eventually the weight loss stops. And then, without you doing anything differently, you slowly (or sometimes rapidly) start gaining back the weight. This happens because of your hormones. Your appetite, metabolism and body weight set-point are tightly regulated by hormones produced by your stomach, intestines, pancreas and fat cells. If these hormones are out of balance, sustained weight loss can be next to impossible. When you diet and exercise, you lose weight, but then your hormones change driving your appetite up, your metabolism down and your weight back up. In order to lose weight and keep it off for good, you must address your body's biochemistry.

At Atlanta Endocrine Associates, we help you lose weight through the science of endocrinology and correction of hormonal dysfunction, not willpower.

It is not your fault. It is not about willpower. We can help you.

We offer a variety of weight loss plans to suit your specific needs including the option of weight loss medications. Whatever your weight-loss goals, losing weight starts here with a plan that's right for you. Our medically supervised weight-loss programs are scientifically based and promote fast, maximum weight loss and better health. Patients in our weight loss programs lose an average of 62 pounds in 21 weeks.

Fast weight loss is better than slow weight loss.

A common misconception is that losing weight quickly is not healthy, not sustainable, and will just lead to future weight re-gain. To the contrary, numerous clinical studies demonstrate that following a weight loss program which promotes fast initial weight loss can result in better long-term success. We are proud to be a provider of the No. 1 Best Fast Weight-Loss Diet in U.S. News & World Reports' Best Diets Rankings.
