Proactive Medical Weight Management Provides Professional Guidance, Support to Patients
At Proactive Medical Weight Management in Scripps Ranch, Dr. Kim Thomas provides professional guidance and support to help patients lose weight and improve their health. Her priority is the delivery of quality service and care in a friendly, convenient setting.
“We value our patients and we strive to make their experience positive and motivating,” Dr. Thomas said. “We find that patients achieve greater results when they feel encouraged and informed, rather than lectured. Our greatest reward is celebrating weight loss success with our patients so we do our very best to help them!”
Since opening her first clinic – Bear Creek Medical – in Murrieta in 2006, Dr. Thomas has helped thousands of patients lose weight and keep it off. “Some weight loss programs are limited in what they can offer patients because they are not staffed by licensed physicians. Since the Proactive Medical Weight Management program is administered by a physician, we can offer patients valuable and proven resources, such as prescription medications and compounded supplements to help them lose weight in a safe and sensible manner. And patients see a physician or physician’s assistant on every follow-up visit.”
At Proactive Medical Weight Management patients receive a comprehensive evaluation including a state-of-the-art body composition analysis that provides the data needed to design a personalized diet and exercise prescription. “Because the body composition analysis gives us insight about an individual’s lean body mass and metabolism, we are able to give specific parameters for their goal weight range. This weight recommendation is far more accurate than the basic BMI range that is usually given to patients by their doctors,” said Thomas.
“The data gleaned from the body composition analysis also allows us to give patients the guidance they need to maintain their weight loss. For most patients, our program also includes prescription medication that helps curb hunger and supplements that help optimize the body’s fat burning capabilities. These resources typically substantially help patients in their efforts to lose weight.”
Board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, Dr. Thomas received her undergraduate degree from the University of California Berkeley, attended osteopathic medical school at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, and completed her postgraduate medical training in Arizona. She served on the academic faculty for the University of Arizona School of Medicine, Mayo Clinic Scottsdale, and Loma Linda University School of Medicine before transitioning from her primary care practice to focus on bariatric (weight management) medicine.[quote]‘We give sound, scientific advice and outline proven strategies for losing weight’

She’s also the mother of 5-year-old twins. “I understand how challenging it can be to juggle career and family. Too many of us lose ourselves in just trying to keep up with our day-to-day responsibilities. It is so important not to let that happen both for the sake of our own health and for the health and well being of those around us,” Dr. Thomas said. “It is possible to find a balance. The first step is making yourself and your health a priority. It’s an investment that will always pay off.”
When asked about the philosophy of her practice, she responded, “Our philosophy is simple: We treat our patients the way we would like to be treated. We show them courtesy, respect, consideration for their time and appreciation for their trust”. She continued, “We really go the extra mile to provide a great experience for our patients in a convenient setting and at fees that won’t break the bank. When our patients lose all that weight, we want them to have some spending money for new clothes!”
Dr. Thomas said medical evidence supports that patients can achieve meaningful, sustained weight loss with Proactive Medical Weight Management’s methods. “We give sound, scientific advice and outline proven strategies for losing weight,” she said. “We have helped thousands of patients enjoy weight loss success and look forward to helping many more.”[divider]Proactive Medical Weight Management is located at 12090 Scripps Summit Drive, Suite C, in Scripps Ranch.
