Surgical Weight Loss Center become Comprehensive Weight Loss Center

To meet the needs of patients seeking weight loss help without surgery, the DeKalb Medical Surgical Weight Loss Center will change its name to Comprehensive Weight Loss Center, effective April 10, 2018. Nutritional counseling has always been part of the surgical weight loss program but will be tailored to the specific needs of those wishing to lose weight without surgery.

The Center, along with DeKalb Medical Physicians Group Surgical Associates, will relocate as well. Both offices will be located on the first floor of the 2665 professional building in space previously occupied by the Charles B. Eberhardt Cancer Center.
