You see every day. Nutritional pollution and sedentary lifestyles are creating a health crisis that’s spiraling out of control, causing increased morbidity and mortality among women, men, and, lately, even children. We’re prescribed more and more drugs for hypertension, coronary heart disease, dyslipidemia, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes. Managed care doesn’t allow our doctors the time we actually need to counsel us on a long-term, regular basis. So we keep gaining weight—and losing ground.

Dubuque Family Eye Care’s commitment to your good health doesn’t stop with the vision care we provide. As an extension of our practice, we also offer weight loss and diet management assistance to our patients and to anyone else wishing to live a healthier lifestyle.

Obesity and the health issues associated with being overweight present serious  problems for countless people, including many in our practice and our community. This number is growing every day and something needs to be done, so Dubuque Family Eye Care has teamed up with the professional coaching division of Medi-fast, Optavia® to bring you the most recommended, and effective weight loss and diet management program available today.
