Slocum-Dickson Medical Group is happy to announce the addition of a medical weight loss
program. The program provides diet, fitness, and healthy behavior management under the direction of
Slocum-Dickson’s Internist, Apruva Shah, MD.
This physician-supervised program utilizes a combination of clinical and lifestyle modifications to help patients
meet their weight loss goals. A new advanced 3D health scanner can be used to help track a patient’s
progress. The scanner measures body fat, bone mass, and lean mass to give patients a more accurate account
of their progress. Dr. Shah and his highly trained and licensed team provide patients with the information and
care to improve their overall health and wellness.
“Weight loss can be a struggle for many,” said Dr. Apruva Shah of Slocum-Dickson Medical Group. “The
medical weight loss program is designed to help meet weight goals and maintain them which will improve
one’s overall physical and mental health.”
Dr. Shah is now scheduling appointments for the medical weight loss program. To schedule an appointment,
