About Us

The Physicians Weight Loss Difference

At Physicians Weight Loss Centers (PWLC) in Columbia, Maryland, we treat everyone as an individual.

Our diet plans for men, women, and teens are customized to meet your individual lifestyle and needs. Most diet plans claim to be customized because they split men and women up into two different categories. That’s not good enough – your body, your relationship with food, and the way you gain or lose weight is unique. Your weight loss program will be designed based on your medical profile, your body composition analysis and how quickly you want to lose weight.

Your Success Is Our Success

Our team of physicians and counselors is committed to helping you lose weight and keep it off. During your medically supervised weight loss journey, you will lose weight quickly and safely.

At Physicians Weight Loss, we want to see our clients as often as possible. We even have a saying here: “the more often we see you, the less of you we see.” You can visit PWLC as often as you like, which will increase your weight loss success. 

If your busy life gets in the way of you coming in to see us, we will give you a Care Call to check in with you to make sure things are going well and see when you will be in next. You matter to us, and we are with you every step of the way.
