Weight Clinic

Montague Farm Medical Centre offers a regular 8 week Weight Loss Clinic with weekly individual consults and group educational and motivational sessions. A multidisciplinary team of a GP (Dr Tri Cao) lifestyle adviser, dietitian, psychologist, exercise physiologist and laughing yoga instructor focus to help you lose weight and maintain your successes. Each Tuesday night an informative presentation will be given by a member of the allied health team at 7pm. Don’t miss out.

The clinic uses objective measures such as bioelectric impedance to monitor changes in body fat and a fitness test to monitor your improvements. There are no out of pocket costs and the clinic is run with a flexible time schedule every Tuesday afternoon from 4:30pm onwards. 

Please call the surgery to make an appointment or discuss the suitability of this program with your usual GP. Previous participants have found it useful to attend with close supports or family members in order to synergize your efforts. It can help you improve control of your diabetes, osteoarthritis or heart disease and assists family members to avoid the same health risks. The aim of this clinic is to help our patients and their families positively impact their long term health issues.
