About New Horizon Medical
New Horizon Medical was founded in 2011 to help tackle the current obesity crisis by guiding patients through a comprehensive weight loss program in a one-on-one setting. This model is the first of its kind and as a result of its unique approach it has caught the eye of the local medical community. Having outgrown our first building, located in Norwood, after 5 years, New Horizon Medical expanded to its new, modernized Foxboro location at the end of 2016.
Today, we serve the needs of the obese and overweight patients from a wide area that are referred to us from their primary care physicians or from current and former patients. Our program is rigorous, but yields tremendous results. Each treatment plan is customized for the patient based on labs and an array of assessments made at the initial visit.
Our multi-disciplinary staff includes professionals in the fields of nutrition, medicine, behavioral studies, and exercise physiology, and provides patients with an in-depth, safe approach to the treatment of obesity. Compliance and accountability coupled with the education and support provided by our professional staff enable long term healthy outcomes. With a strong emphasis on the adoption of healthy lifestyle changes for the long term, our patients enjoy lasting success and are thankful for the life changes they have made while being treated at New Horizon Medical.
