The Start Clinic Difference

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.

Begin your journey to ultimate health and vitality by calling 602-795-3649 for an appointment, today!

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.
