Here at Manhattan Primary Care, our leading NYC doctors provide comprehensive weight management and weight control programs that are tailor-made to provide you with optimum results. Weight management is often complex, which is why our doctors do not offer a one-size-fits-all program. Instead, our physicians at Upper East Side medical care physicians provide individualized programs comprising nutritional, exercise, and behavioral components.
Weight management is often complex, which is why our doctors do not offer a one-size-fits-all program.
Being at a healthy weight reduces your risk for health problems. These problems include:
- Heart disease
- Type II diabetes
- High blood pressure
- Sleep apnea
For most people, their body mass index (BMI) defines their healthy body weight. BMI is a simple calculation based on a person’s height and weight. Waist size is another reliable indicator of overall health. However, maintaining a healthy weight is only part of the equation, as good nutrition and regular exercise are also critical for good health.
Comprehensive Health Assessment
A comprehensive assessment is necessary to assess your overall health. We will want to check your weight and your height and measure your waistline.
The team of NY top doctors and award-winning primary care physicians evaluate your medical history. We may order diagnostic tests or refer you to other specialists based on this information. Sometimes specific health conditions can make weight management tricky.
Potential conditions include:
- Thyroid disorders
- Insulin resistance
Identifying and correcting these disorders could help you on your path to successful weight control.
We assess your psychological well-being and mobility as it’s essential to consider the full impact on your overall health. We aim to understand each patient thoroughly to determine why someone may have gained weight and barriers that may affect their ability to lose and manage their weight successfully.
Weight gain may result from overeating, a reduction in metabolic rate, or reduced physical activity. Also, there are socio-economic, biological, and psychological factors to consider.

Weight Management Plan in NYC
Using the information collected during your initial assessment, we can develop a program to help you learn the skills required for successful weight control and hopefully stay with you for life.
Weight management is about far more than merely reducing the number on the scale, and you can measure success in improvements in overall health and well-being. The many patients, even modest weight losses, can lead to significant improvements to their general health.
A person’s best weight may not necessarily be their ideal weight, but we aim to set achievable targets based on a realistic and sustainable weight loss.
Additional Therapies to Help with Weight Control
In addition to seeing our physician, we may suggest other therapies such as nutritional counseling and individual or group therapy counseling sessions.
Nutritional counseling can help you create healthy eating habits, provide you with personalized meal plans, and advise you of the need for any supplements.
Individual or group therapy counseling can help you gain and maintain a healthy relationship with food, discover why you make unhealthy choices or why you may have developed unhealthy behaviors, and how to overcome these issues.
Physical activity is essential for weight loss and can help you to manage your weight more successfully. It is also excellent for your general health. If you don’t currently exercise, we can suggest ways to incorporate physical activity into your daily life safely.
