New Horizon Medical is excited to announce that it now offers the time tested OPTIFAST Weight Management Program! We are one of only a few clinics and hospitals throughout Massachusetts to offer the program. The OPTIFAST Program is for patients meeting minimum BMI criteria which is determined and reviewed with the patient at a FREE consultation. The OPTIFAST Program will augment the wide variety of weight loss programs already in place and will allow us to help obese patients begin their journey to better health. After weeks of training and implementation, our professional staff is excited and ready to administer the programs to people wanting to lose weight.
The OPTIFAST Program is a medically supervised weight management program that closely monitors and assesses progress towards better health and emotional well-being. The program, which usually lasts 26 weeks, utilizes a full meal replacement plan that transitions to self-prepared ‘everyday’ meals, in conjunction with comprehensive patient education and support.
