  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Osteoarthritis

  • Certain types of cancer

Your weight may also affect your self-esteem and self-confidence, which may impact your emotional and mental health.

Am I a good candidate for weight management?

The team at Grace Family Medicine Direct Primary Care of Wellington determines if you’re a good candidate for the weight management program during a consultation. You may be a good candidate if you’re struggling to get to and stay at a healthy weight.

This membership not only gives you access to the weight management program, but also comprehensive wellness exams, sick visits, on-site testing with reduced lab costs, and access to the team at any time via phone, email, or video conference.

In addition to the many benefits of membership, the direct primary care model also allows the team to spend an adequate amount of time with you whenever you need care.
