If you are interested in a consultation but have never been seen in the Weight and Wellness Center, ask your doctor for a referral.
If you are a returning patient, you may use myD-H to communicate securely with your providers, request or change appointments, review your medical record, and more.
For referring physicians
The Weight and Wellness Center is a referral-based specialty clinic seeking to improve the health and wellness of individuals with excess weight and obesity by determining the best treatment plan for each patient and assisting in the facilitation of that plan. We partner closely with patients and their families to develop a tailored approach that meets their particular needs, lifestyle challenges, and health and wellness goals. We also work to identify both underlying causes of obesity and adverse health consequences of obesity.
Because we recognize the importance of integrating care with your patients' medical home, patients must be referred to participate. If you have a patient you would like to refer for consultation by our team, please contact the DHMC Physician Connection Center.
