At avecinia wellness center, we believe losing weight is only effective when you learn to manage your weight. That is why, as your partner in health and well being, we have developed unique weight management programs instead of just weight loss programs. Our Group Weight Management Counseling program is designed for individuals seeking a more independent approach to losing and managing their weight. Our Medical Weight Management program has been designed by Dr. Hayat and her trusted colleagues to address more severe weight issues that require additional attention and guidance. Our Medical Weight Management program is the only weight management program in Fresno and the Central Valley that combines a medical and fitness approach in a unique, proven, result oriented manner. After reading the description of each program below, call us at (559) 450-7299 to learn more or set an appointment for a free consultation.
