Our Cornelius office is open now!


We are a premier Bariatric Medicine practice specializing in medically supervised, comprehensive weight management and wellness programs to help you achieve long-term weight loss and improved health.  Along with achieving successful weight loss and increased energy, our patients frequently find they can reduce or eliminate medications for high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, high cholesterol, depression, and many other conditions.

Our team of highly trained medical professionals individually design a program, based on the latest medical research, to accommodate your particular needs.  Whether your goal is to lose 2 pounds per week or 20 pounds per month, we do not approach weight and wellness with a "one-size fits all" philosophy.  We believe this approach is the reason that our success rates are very high.

Our physician, Dr. Peter McIlveen is one of the few doctors in the state of North Carolina that is Board Certified as a specialist in Obesity Medicine. Other programs do not have physicians that have attained this high level of competency.  This achievement, along with extensive medical training and experience, makes us uniquely qualified to meet all of your weight loss needs.

Our patients do not ask us to help them become a new person.  They ask us to help them find themselves; they want people to "see them" and not the surrounding weight.  We understand that obesity hurts, both physically and emotionally.  Call us today to see how we can help you start your journey to achieving weight loss, wellness, and balance in your life.


Congratulations to Dr. Peter McIlveen!
