Twenty years ago, a physician had a vision. The late Dr. Douglas J. Jones, Jr., M.D., saw a need for South Carolina to have a carefully designed, personally tailored weight-loss program.
Taking his specialized knowledge in obesity, diabetes, thyroid disorders, osteoporosis, and weight management, Dr. Jones developed metabolic programs that factor in your specific weight-loss needs based on your family history, medical lab results, personal goals and your lifestyle.
His mission was to help individuals become healthier and lose weight by maintaining a minimum loss of 10% of their body weight. His approach was to treat each patient with compassion and encouragement in pursuing these challenging goals.
Full of charisma, Dr. Jones had a knack for being able to help patients who felt that weight loss and diabetes management was hopeless. He also felt that the time had come for middle America to be able to afford a weight loss system accessible and supervised through licensed medical doctors. The development of “Business Best Practices” created a balance in medical protocols within a non-insurance, preventative health model. He further established a positive, supportive working environment that has resulted in many colleagues who have been with the company for years.
