We’ve designed a program that removes the barriers to successful weight management journeys.

We believe that working together with primary care providers significantly increases the likelihood of long-term success for patients living with obesity. We also acknowledge that comprehensive weight management, including behavioural (CBT) therapy and medical management, is time consuming and difficult without the proper ancillary supports available within many family practices.
MWM is a team of family physician and dietitians with expertise in weight management. We work to reduce the barriers to providing comprehensive weight management at the primary care level. We are not duplicating family medicine – our aim is to improve the health outcomes of your patients without increasing your workload.
How we work together
Where possible, we ask for copies of relevant lab work on file for our shared patient and use it to inform our treatment plan and potential prescriptions for anti-obesity medications.
We communicate with you regularly and keep you informed about the care plan being developed for your patient. At any point during the program, you can contact us if you have any questions about the care plan.
We provide information and education about comprehensive weight management to support the ongoing care of our shared patient.
