"I can't be more pleased with the success I've had with Options Medical Weight Loss. My coach is Miranda, and her support has made all the difference for me to stay motivated. She helped me make this program work in my real life too, after the program ends. I gained nearly 30lbs during Covid, and I've lost all of it. I feel better too because I've lost over 25lbs of fat, and minimal muscle loss. I am so grateful to Miranda and the entire staff, they're so friendly. I actually enjoy going in every week.
