Thank you Turnure Medical Weight Loss for having a top notch weight loss program! I was able to lose 70 pounds in less than 8 months with Lauren and Holly's help and encouragement. They are like friends now and I know they will continue to help me as I work to stay fit and keep it off for good!
Being Healthy Is Not As Hard As It Seems
So far in the past 3 month Natasha has helped me loose 46 pounds! I am more then happy with how far i have come. She has taught me that being healthy is not as hard as it used to seem. Dr. Turnure has also been helping in my weight loss journey. I see him every couple weeks to insure that I am getting all the medical knowledge to help keep the weight off once i hit my goal. I will update in the next couple months!

Why Is Being Overweight Unhealthy?
Being overweight is not an appearance problem, it’s a medical problem. There are over 53 serious diseases that are caused by being overweight – heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stroke, diabetes and cancer to name a few. It is the 2nd most preventable cause of death killing over 300,000 people per year. Studies show that even losing as little as 10 pounds can reduce blood pressure.
The first step is to make a consultation appointment with one of our professional staff. They will explain the options of our program as well as the cost. Consultations are $35 and we have plans as low as $60 for a half hour visit. We are also able to bill some insurances and offer 12 months of “interest free” financing through *Care Credit. *Upon approval of credit, minimum purchase required At your first appointment, we will do a Body Composition Analysis. Our scale uses bioelectrical impedance (BIA) to estimate your body composition. It runs a light electrical current through your body, measures the degree of resistance (or impedance) to the flow of the current, then uses this information to estimate how much body fat you have.
Why The Scale?
It’s a simple fact that you can’t improve what you don’t measure. Getting on the scale promotes accountability as well as reliability.
We agree that it is not always about the number and that is why we offer a scale with bio-electrical impedance. Using this technology we can accurately measure your body fat and muscle mass index. The purpose is not to discourage you but encourage you.
