The HPWLC philosophy is that obesity is a primary disease, not just a symptom.  As with other medical problems, our comprehensive approach begins with an extensive medical and dietary history, physical examination, laboratory tests, and an EKG. Your metabolic type is classified from this information.  Your individual weight loss program is developed and implemented with the help of highly skilled professionals.  Individual adjustments are made to your program during your weight loss to assure your optimal success. Dr. Pat Solis and his team are committed to your overall health including your weight loss success.
