StartClinic is a Medical Weight Management center focused on helping you transform your body and improve your health by achieving your weight loss goals.
As a nation, we are living and working longer – but are we maintaining healthy weight and fitness levels that allow us to enjoy the extra years of our lives?
Far too often, our habits don’t support a healthy, energetic, pain- and drug-free longevity. Instead, with each year we get sicker and develop chronic conditions that are painful, life-threatening and require medication.
Start Clinic only utilizes methods that have been proven by science to be effective in helping you lose weight, increase fitness while maintaining overall health. Our medical weight loss results are supervised by Glen Halvorson, M.S., M.D. who has worked with Olympic teams and has 35 years of medical experience helping patients reduce weight, improve fitness and manage pain.
Start Clinic weight loss programs and nutritional counseling utilize methods known to achieve lasting medical weight loss results.
Jump-start a slow metabolism or ignite your body’s fat-burning mechanism with proven methods provided by a medical doctor.
Start Clinic is the only Phoenix medical weight loss clinic with a gym and certified fitness trainer.
Your first appointment at Start Clinic begins with a comprehensive evaluation, including:

We may also run diagnostic assessments to uncover any imbalances that could prevent you from reaching maximum medical weight loss results. This will lead us to recommend the proper supplements and medical interventions that could speed your progress. At Start Clinic, we are focused on your needs and goals to understand how to support you in reaching the weight loss, fitness, and age-positive results you want.
