MD Weight Loss is the weight loss practice of Dr. Dale Gray, the only Rockford doctor who is board certiﬁed in Obesity Medicine (he is a Diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine). Medical weight loss is faster and safer because you are under the care of board-certiﬁed physician with over 25 years of experience. Weight loss physicians, also known as bariatricians, can use tools not available in self directed diets. In addition, Dr. Gray is board certiﬁed in Internal Medicine, so he is very comfortable dealing with complex medical cases, including patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid problems, sleep apnea, arthritis, high cholesterol levels, and many other conditions. So, whether you are otherwise healthy and just want to lose a few pounds in preparation for an upcoming event, or if you have multiple medical problems and take several medications, Dr. Gray can help you.
Care and Support Unlike some other weight loss clinics, you meet with Dr. Gray at every ofﬁce visit and receive personalized attention. He reviews your eating patterns, your level of exercise, and reviews eating behaviors that may be detrimental to your weight loss success. In addition, because of his 25 years of experience in the ﬁeld of internal medicine, he is able to recognize medical problems and medications that may be impairing your ability to lose weight.
Board Certiﬁed Dr. Gray is board certiﬁed by the American Board of Obesity Medicine and by the American Board of Internal Medicine. He also attends ongoing educational conferences offered by the American Society of Bariatric Physicians every 6 months to stay current on the most up-to-date information and techniques to help you lose and maintain loss of weight.
Individualized Plans Dr. Gray recognizes that each person is unique and has different issues that contribute to their struggle with weight. Accordingly, his weight loss plans are individualized to meet the needs of the individual.
