Overview

Summary: We are a medical weight loss and direct primary care practice, focused on obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and metabolic syndrome.

Our primary goal is to work with our patients to decrease the costs and burden of modern disease.

Personal Statement:

"My weight loss story begins at childhood. I grew up obese, in an obese family. I have personally dealt with the deep emotions and feelings involved with being overweight for most of my life. I have dealt with the same issues that many of my patients face, which affords me the capacity to empathize with them and guide them in a special way. This connection is why my patients are successful in their wellness journey, because I am not preaching from some Ivory Tower. I lived through what my patients live through, and I have experienced what they are experiencing. In order to heal myself, I studied for countless hours through medical literature, researched thousands of papers, read hundreds of books in order to find the answer, for myself, to the ever important question: Why are we fat? And what I found during my journey and research was in such stark contrast to what we have been told. Eating multiple small meals DOES NOT speed up your metabolism. Fruit Juices ARE NOT healthy. Red Meat, Fish & Full-Fat Yogurt ARE healthy. If most physicians and nutritionists can't get it right, why do we expect anything different from our patients? Are we surprised that obesity epidemic has exploded? What patients may not realize is that most physicians DO NOT have sufficient training in nutrition and can't help you lose weight or reverse disease. Furthermore the food industry and special interests have made is so hard to understand what a healthy lifestyle really is. Ultimately, I find I am best able to serve my patients because I understand what it is like, I have been through it, and I help my patients every step of the way. I succeed when they succeed. My name is Tro Kalayjian, I am a board-certified physician, I lost 150lbs to reclaim my health for myself and my family. I did it by ignoring much of the conventional medical advice that we have been told. My life's goal is to get you healthy and prevent disease. I want to get you OFF of your medications."
