Advanced Medical Weight Loss was founded in 2006 by Dr. Melissa.  During her
residency she became interested in bariatric medicine and focused on the intricate
details of how the human body gains and loses weight.  Upon completion of her
training she decided to apply the knowledge she acquired to help people attain a
more healthy lifestyle.  One of the greatest rewards has been the joy she
experiences when her patients work diligently and achieve their goal.
