Gateway Medical Weight Loss and Wellness is a family practice clinic staffed by Susan Morgan, MD and Stacey Groves, our certified Physician Assistant.
We see patients for a variety of medical problems, and often have same day appointments available.
We see patients from age 2 to 65, and offer vaccinations, check-ups, school and work forms as well as urgent care visits.
We are also known as one of the best diet clinics in Murfreesboro.
Here you will find caring doctors and nurses who strive to give you the best possible health care, in a friendly, inviting atmosphere. We take the time to get to know you and truly listen. Nothing makes us happier than keeping you and your family healthy!
WE SPEND MORE TIME WITH EVERY PATIENT.
We realize diagnosing illness requires time to listen without rushing you.
WE USUALLY SPEND 90 MINUTES WITH EVERY WEIGHT LOSS PATIENT.
Breaking life-long bad eating habits takes time and education. This is one of our specialties.
WE DO NOT SUPPLY FOOD SUPPLEMENTS OR PREPACKAGED MEALS FOR WEIGHT LOSS.
To be successful you need to be able to design your own meals.
WE DO NOT HAVE ANY UP FRONT CHARGES OR PRE-PAID PACKAGES.
Since this is a regular doctors office, you pay your co-pay or out-of-pocket deductible each visit, plus any meds you may need.
WE DO NOT REQUIRE YOU TO COME IN EVERY WEEK.
We want you to weigh yourself weekly, but that can be done in the privacy of your own home.
Our primary goal is to diagnose illness, prevent illness and teach you how to improve your life.
We spend approximately 90 minutes with each new weight loss patient.
We do a complete medical history, diet history and physical.
We do screening laboratory tests and and an EKG if you haven't had them in the previous 6 months.
Together we taste test different foods to find out your likes and dislikes.
We expect you to use the grocery list supplied at the first visit to buy the foods you need to eat from your favorite local grocery store.
We give lots of options for your meals, (even eating out) that actually make sense.
We discuss the different medications available for weight loss, their pros and cons, and make them available through our clinic.
We have an exercise physiologist on staff to help you come up with a fitness plan.
Above all, we listen. We work with you as life stresses push and pull you to fail. We help get you on track, and keep you on track, until you reach your goal.
