Did you know that we have doubled the size of our state-of-the-art clinic in Midtown Anchorage, brought on new providers and new services to help you, and have become the first bariatrics clinic in the state to offer psychological services alongside bariatrics? Phew! We’ve been busy!

We added two licensed clinical psychologists to our team and partnered with local boutique gym Body Renew as a way to offer more convenient and affordable services to you. We cater our care to each patient, helping you meet wellness goals through surgical and non-surgical options, lifestyle changes and mental health support.

In recent years, experts have increasingly pointed to mental health as a contributing factor for a number of physical ailments, including obesity. In order to offer patients the most comprehensive and high-quality care in the state, we welcomed Licensed Clinical Psychologists Dr. Janet H. Elliott and Dr. H.B. Acker to the team. “The clinic’s rapid growth in just under two years, including the addition of psychological services, is testament to our medical team’s ability to help people make real, long-term changes in their lives,” said Dr. Clark.

Morning Motivation

It is too easy to put off exercise until tomorrow. Especially if you’re a parent who is constantly responding to the needs of others, it is hard to put your needs at the top of the list. Finding motivation (and time, and energy…) can be challenging, which is why exercise should be scheduled into your daily routine. Working out first thing in the morning is sometimes the easiest time to fit it in – before the kids are awake, before your workday starts, and before you’ve gotten sucked into other tasks and projects. Plus, working out in the morning will kick-start your metabolism and wake up your brain and body for the day.

Healthy Food Choices

Did you know that eating sushi can be attributed to a healthy lifestyle? With the wide variety of sushi choices out there (and many of them fully cooked), sushi is quickly becoming a regular part of many American’s diets. The health benefits of the ingredients in sushi include good carbs from the rice, omega-3 fatty acids and selenium from the fish, along with Vitamins A and D, calcium and magnesium. Frequently, vegetables are included in the dishes and those contain any number of nutrients from vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, E and K, fiber, magnesium, beta-carotene and numerous minerals such as copper, phosphorus, potassium, zinc and iron. Of course, preparation is key – avoid tempura or fried style items and take it easy on the soy sauce to keep sodium intake down.
