Medically Managed Weight Loss

The medically managed weight loss program at WMed is a specialty clinic within the Department of Family and Community Medicine. It is located in the Family Health Center, 117 W. Paterson Street, in Kalamazoo, as one of the WMed Family Medicine Residency specialty clinics. While one of the more readily visible goals for the clinic is helping patients achieve and maintain healthy weight, the larger overall goal is to enable participants to achieve vibrant physical, mental, and emotional health through lifestyle changes.

Fees and Insurance

Family health starts at the Family Health Center and we welcome every person regardless of ability to pay. Additionally, Medicaid is always welcome at the FHC and Medicaid patients are never turned away.

For patients who need assistance, FHC financial counselors are available to determine whether you qualify for our Sliding Fee Scale, what other resources may be available to you, and how to create a payment plan that works within your budget. We can also offer referrals to other programs, help patients navigate the Medicaid system and assist with paperwork and translation as needed.


Please ask to speak with a financial counselor if you are having difficulty paying your bill, have lost your job, are uninsured, or you’re simply worried about budgeting for your health care. The calm, kind and caring staff at the FHC is here to help you find solutions for healthy living.
