What is the policy regarding age of patients who are able to participate in the weight loss clinic?

You must be at least 18 years old to participate in the weight clinic.  Dr. Summers will allow obese patients younger than age 18 to participate in the weight loss clinic if he feels that a medically supervised weight loss program is the best option for the particular person.  In this situation, Dr. Summers requires a parent/legal guardian to be present at the initial weight clinic consultation and at every follow up appointment.
