Our mission at NWWC is to be the preferred weight and wellness center, providing compassionate, quality, holistic patient-centered care that supports a life-changing journey and improves health and well-being.

The opportunities to help people live healthy active lives have never been greater. That is why we offer comprehensive bariatric surgical and non-surgical medical weight loss programs. With insurance advocacy, individualized fitness plans, nutrition counseling, therapeutic services and long-term dedicated support we are redefining the health and wellness experience.
