Medically Supervised Weight Loss

The medically supervised wellness programs of WE Care of Community Care Physicians, P.C., integrate medical evaluations, nutritional counseling, exercise guidance and behavior modification to provide clients with a personalized, safe and sustainable plan to help them implement and maintain the changes they want to make. WE Care providers Raymond Carrelle, M.D., Linda Katz, FNP, Rachel Colfer, PA, and Shulamit Shechter, MS RD, CDN, work with clients to create a program to fit any lifestyle, schedule and budget.

Carrelle says, “You cannot look at this just as a diet or something to do short-term. It truly is a lifelong process in the sense that you are changing your relationship to food and physical activity. You need to address the behaviors that trigger people to fall off track.”

Low-cost, onsite exercise programs include yoga and small group personal training. There is also a free, four-week introduction to exercise program available called WE Care 101. WE Care programs are open to adults and are covered under most major health insurance plans. Certain insurance plans may limit coverage based on qualifying criteria. Call to verify coverage.
