Physician's Plan uses a multi-factorial approach that utilizes registered dietitians, personal trainers and bariatric physicians to help individually tailor a program for each patient based on lifestyle, habits & goals.  The Physician identifies and treats the hidden causes of overweight and obesity in each patient, such as slow metabolism, hormonal and nutritional imbalances or genetic factors. Patients also improve  metabolic parameters such as cholesterol level and blood pressure, while on the program.   Physician's Plan has locations in Charleston, Summerville, Florence and Mt. Pleasant, SC.   In North Carolina, they are located in Hickory and Huntersville.
