Did you know that about 45 million Americans go on a diet every year? But that doesn’t mean that everyone who diets is successful at losing weight.
Almost two-thirds of the country’s population are either overweight or obese. These statistics highlight the need for medical intervention to lose weight.
At Murray’s Health & Wellness in Naples, Florida, board-certified internal medicine physician Emilia E. Murray, MD, understands the many different factors that play a role in losing weight. Not everyone is the same, and not everyone responds to a formulated diet plan. That’s why she provides customized medical weight loss programs for her patients.
But how do you know if you need medical assistance to lose the extra pounds? Let’s shed some light on that question.
If you’re overweight or obese, weight loss can immediately improve your health and also help you feel better about yourself.

As you start to drop pounds, Dr. Murray can make adjustments to your plan, as needed. And once you reach your goal, she continues to monitor your progress through a maintenance plan so you don’t gain the weight back.
