As of this week, patients at the Northwest Suburban Chicago Wellness Clinic have lost a total of 80,931 pounds of fat.
The clinic aims to shatter the 81,000-pound-lost mark near the end of the year.
"We are thrilled to reach this point," said Dr. Anand Thakkar. "It's an honor to our practice and a local victory in the nationwide battle against obesity."
He points out that focusing on wellness and longterm lifestyle changes helps patients’ success at the medical clinic. Dr. Thakkar is an expert at weight loss and wellness and is an active member of the American Holistic Medical Association and the American Society of Bariatric Physicians. He is board certified in Internal Medicine and in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.
The clinic has served 2,050 patients. Patients lost an average of 34 pounds.
Weight loss treatments at the Hoffman Estates clinic include appetite suppressants, diet plans, FDA approved medications, behavioral therapy, fitness training, laser liposuction, nutritional counseling, B12 injections and food sensitivity tests.
“This is the best I’ve ever felt in my life,” says Jenny Hader, 39, of Hoffman Estates, who lost 105 pounds. “My life has been completely transformed. I’m never going back.”
Hader learned about the clinic from a friend. She had gained weight after a foot surgery and weighed 268 pounds.
“It started spiraling downward and I felt miserable,” she says.
Upon examination of blood work, Dr Thakkar discovered she has a thyroid condition. Following a diet and exercise plan, she lost more than 100 pounds in six months.
“Now, life is good,” says the mother of two. “In fact, life is great.”
Cutting edge medical technology and diet and nutrition counseling is offered to all patients. Chicago Weight Loss and Wellness Clinic emphasizes long term weight loss, promoting a healthy lifestyle and preventive care to achieve anti-aging and wellness.
“Thanks to Dr. Anand Thakkar and the Chicago Weight Loss and Wellness clinic, I feel great and got my life back. I feel more confident in every way," says Ken Patel of Hoffman Estates.
The public is invited to attend support groups held on the first and third Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the clinic, 1000 Grand Canyon Parkway, in Hoffman Estates.
