About Us

Our team was founded by Jeff Monash MD, FACS in 2007, and we have a dedicated team of weight loss professionals. We have helped thousands of patients achieve their weight loss goals, both with and without surgery. Our motto is, “LIve Happier, Live Healthier, Live Longer.”

Most of our patients have tried and failed many diets, appetite suppressant medications, and sometimes even weight loss surgery from other programs.

We understand that truly sustainable weight loss is never achieved by a quick fix, prescribed medication, or even surgery alone. Bariatric surgery is the greatest tool in the world today for losing weight rapidly, but by itself, it will not keep the weight off.

To achieve sustained weight loss, we offer our patients a tailored program. One that will specifically address their personal nutritional, lifestyle, and monetary situation. Most importantly, we believe in reliable communication and long-term accountability.

We are truly dedicated to helping you achieve your weight loss goals!
