According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one-third of adult Americans are obese, which puts them at greater risk for developing life-threatening complications such as:

  • Certain forms of cancer
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Gallbladder disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High LDL cholesterol
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Sleep apnea
  • Stroke

But there IS something you can do to lower your risk and achieve a healthier lifestyle.

Developed to be on the cutting edge of obesity treatment, Mercy LIGHT is a physician-supervised weight-management program to help you Lose Inches and Gain Healthier Tomorrows.

At Mercy LIGHT, we evaluate each patient for the specific reasons that make it difficult to lose weight or keep weight off, including metabolism, environment and motivation. Based on your individual medical and psychological characteristics, we create a personalized strategy to help you lose weight and get healthy! 

Why Mercy LIGHT?

  •  Medical supervision. Unlike many weight-loss programs, Mercy LIGHT is physician-supervised, making it safe, effective and more credible to insurance companies. The program is directed by Dr. Doubek, a bariatrician certified through the American Board of Bariatric Medicine. 
  • Team approach. Incorporating a whole team of medical professionals, we offer support and treatment in five areas:
    • Medical supervision
    • Psychological evaluation
    • Nutritional counseling
    • Personal training
    • Surgical intervention
  • Emphasis on wellness, not just weight loss. Working with your primary care physician, our goal is not just to help you lose weight, but to develop an overall wellness plan that is right for you.
