*** Update to services provided, as a result of COVID-19 ***
- March 18th, 2020
"COVID-19 is placing stress on Canada's public health system. Calgary Weight Management Centre will now be offering virtual care to make sure that we can continue to care for our patients safely and effectively. This means that we will be using video and audio technologies for all patient visits rather than asking them to come into our office. We do our best to make sure that any information you give to us during virtual care visits is private and secure, but no video or audio tools are ever completely secure. There is an increased security risk that your health information may be intercepted or disclosed to third parties when using video or audio communication tools. To help us keep your information safe and secure, you can:
- understand that video, emails, calls, or texts you may receive are not secure in the same way as a private appointment in an exam room
- use a private computer/device (ie not an employer's or third party's computer/device), secure accounts and a secure internet connection. For example, using a personal and encrypted email account is more secure than an unencrypted email account, and your access to the Internet on your home network will generally be more secure than an open guest wi-fi connection
If you are concerned about using video or audio tools for virtual care, please contact the clinic to discuss your options.
By providing your information, you agree to let us collect and use your personal health information through video or audio communications (while following applicable privacy laws) in order to provide you with care. In particular, the following means of electronic communication: email, videoconferencing (eg Doxy), or text messaging (including instant messaging)."
CALGARY WEIGHT MANAGEMENT CENTRE
Safe Sustainable Weight Control
Housing a highly skilled and enthusiastic multidisciplinary team, Calgary Weight Management Centre provides expertise to patients seeking assistance with achieving and maintaining a healthier weight
Diets don’t work because no one can “diet” forever. “Diets” come with a start and an end, and often with the end of a diet comes weight re-gain, or relapse. Those who try many different diets frequently experience weight cycling - the repeated loss and re-gain of body weight. For many people, weight cycling can also lead to feelings of discouragement and failure, which can then contribute to further weight gain and lower self-confidence.
Calgary Weight Management Centre is a patient focused weight management facility that provides comprehensive and realistic weight loss and weight maintenance programs to adults, children and families who struggle with their weight.
