Our business was founded in February 2014 by Nurse Practitioner and Owner Tracie L.R. Ojakangas, who wished to create a clinic dedicated solely to the healthy and safe means of medical weight loss. The intent of our business for our clients is to develop realistic weight loss and aging goals and to partner with them toward attaining those goals, so that they can feel their best to pursue their lives with renewed confidence, enhanced focus and positive energy. Our clients are greeted by a non-judgmental team that provides the best treatment and personalized service available.
