What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is not surgery or diet pills. It is physician-directed weight management based on medical scientific principles that target the root causes of obesity and weight gain to achieve and sustain a healthy long-term weight. Located in Brownsville, TX, we’re the only CMWL program in the Rio Grande Valley area. Our program offers:

  • Individual attention from the start from Dr. Francisco Javier del Castillo
  • Realistic and accurate expectations
  • Safe and effective weight loss
  • Personal support before, during and after weight loss

Three steps to success

1. Your medical history

Your visit starts with Dr. del Castillo asking for your medical history, including any prescription or over-the-counter medication you may be taking. It’s very important for us to understand your overall health when designing your personalized plan.

2. Your body composition analysis (BCA)

The staff will weigh you on a special scale that reveals total percentages of fat, muscle and water in your body. Your resting metabolism and blood pressure will also be taken. This gives Dr. del Castillo a baseline to start your weight loss plan.

3. Your consultation with the doctor

Finally, Dr. del Castillo will review your medical history and BCA results with you. This is the time to share your weight loss goals and challenges and what you truly want to get out of a weight loss plan. In order for Dr. del Castillo to design your personalized plan, he needs to get to know the whole you.

At the end of your visit, you’ll have a plan personalized just for you! If you decide to move ahead with your personalized weight loss plan, you’ll not only be following a medically proven weight loss approach, but you’ll be building a relationship with Dr. del Castillo, who’ll be your greatest support throughout the process.
