Headed by Dr. Angela Zechmann, South Sound Preventive Medicine provides non-surgical approach to the treatment of obesity. Our program is based on medical science, not fads or fad dieting.  We know that the traditional advice to count calories, eat less and exercise more may work for a short period of time, but eventually leaves people feeling deprived and frustrated. Dieting takes a huge toll on your physical and emotional health. This is no way to live. It’s time to think differently.  

At South Sound Preventive Medicine, we understand that successful weight loss requires a comprehensive approach. You will discover that weight gain is not a character flaw; it’s a disease. You will learn that your cravings are based in biology, not a lack of willpower. We will dig deeper to discover the underlying causes of weight gain.  We will treat you individually and compassionately.

In just a few short months, you start to experience significant weight loss, increased energy levels, better sleep, greater mobility, lower cholesterol, and a reduced risk of serious medical conditions. You feel vibrant and resilient again.  We will help you restore your health and well being, so you can reclaim the life you know you were born to live.
