Prevention Medical Center was established to address America’s current national obesity epidemic. Our goal is to make a difference among all of us who struggle with our weight by developing a safe, effective weight loss system that addresses each person’s weight loss goals and issues on an individual level.
We provide a variety of weight control services in the Manassas area, including a personalized diet plan and other tools to help you reach your monthly goal weight. Our team of board certified doctors, nurse practitioners, medical assistants, and registered dietitians will teach you about portion control, emotional eating, improving food choices, and using exercise to reach and maintain your goal weight.
Your healthy weight loss is monitored within the guideline of a safe, effective, and physician-directed plan. Our clinicians, medical staff, and registered dietitians will guide you. There are no secrets here. Only affordable, safe weight loss in a personalized weight loss program.
The program works as follows:
Prevention Medical Center’s staff is highly trained in the field and attentive to the needs of each individual patient. Our team consists of board-certified doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and phlebotomists with relevant degrees and certifications. (Please see our medical staff.)
We will provide you with a personalized weight loss program that includes personal medical counseling from a board certified physician as well as dietary counseling from a licensed, registered dietitian. We will monitor your progress and make the necessary adjustments to help you achieve your short and long-term objectives. Although our primary goal is to assist you in reaching your target weight quickly and easily, the focus of care is to allow you to maintain your weight loss permanently so that you do not regain the weight after completing our medical weight loss program.
We provide the most recent FDA-approved prescription weight loss medications, as well as B12 and Lipo-B injections. Only medical doctors can obtain our optional nutritional products. You’re serious about losing weight, and that’s all we do. You will find our Atlanta weight loss doctors and dietitians to be experts on weight related illnesses, obesity, nutrition, fitness, prescription medications and behavioral motivation and modification.

Our staff can start assisting you with your weight loss goals by running your blood work. A complete metabolic profile (CMP), a complete blood count with differential, a cholesterol and triglyceride test (lipid profile), and thyroid tests will be performed (TSH, Free T-3). These tests ensure that your medical weight loss program is both safe and effective.
Our doctors use an accurate technique known as Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis, which sends a harmless amount of electric current through a person’s body to determine body composition. The current calculates your body fat percentage by “reading” the amount of fat and lean body mass in your system. The currents measure the resistance that it must overcome in order to travel, which in turn measures your total body water. When you have more muscle, your body can hold more water, allowing the current to flow more easily. The total body water count is then used to calculate the amount of fat-free body mass, leaving the amount of actual body fat when your weight is subtracted. Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis is a painless and very precise measure that our medical weight loss centers use to put you on your way to healthy weight loss.
An electrodardiogram (EKG) is a continuous strip graph that records the electrical voltage from the heart. It is the most important tool for screening and diagnosing cardiovascular diseases. Our physician weight loss clinics’ medical doctors require this test for each patient. Our number one priority is safety.
