Options Medical Weight Loss 959 E. Johnstown Road Gahanna, OH 43230 will host its grand opening starting Monday, August 19th at 8:00 am

The top-rated weight loss franchise, which is located off E. Johnstown Road in Gahanna, will offer customized weight loss programs, FDA-approved appetite suppressants, one on one counseling, lipotropic fat burners, B12 injections, and their Options Diet System, according to the company’s website.

According to the company’s press release, Options Medical Weight Loss is a one-of-a-kind, boutique weight loss clinic that combines the benefits of medical prescriptions, and nutrition while patients are managed by their team of professionals. Every patient can choose from their 19 different programs, which they customize to each individual’s goals, medical history, and any social obstacles they may face.  “We are excited to bring our successful system to help anyone in Gahanna/New Albany area that may need it, said William Barton, CEO of Options Medical Weight Loss franchising. “One of the components that’s missing in this industry is the aid of medications and program customization. “We feel we deliver both with perfection.”

In 2014, the weight loss franchise opened in downtown Chicago, since then, they have expanded in the Chicagoland area with four locations. The company opened in Arizona in 2018, and now Ohio is the franchise’s newest market. They have plans to expand even more in the Columbus area.

According to the press release, Options Medical Weight Loss attributes their aggressive growth plan to the overall results of their patients, the positive feedback, and the need for a weight loss center that has options for everyone.

“Obesity is on the rise, up to 40% nationwide, and our mission is to stop this epidemic one city at a time,” said Nate Long, Clinic Manager and Co-owner.

Long said that greater Columbus area residents would now have more weight loss options because there are very few weight loss centers like Options Medical Weight Loss that can address all weight loss needs and manage patients’ medical history at the same time.

Barton said despite not being overweight himself, his family has always battled with weight loss, including a father that passed away after struggling with obesity. He believes if this clinic existed in 2012 his father may still be alive today. He said his motivation to grow the business is from watching patients transform their bodies and lives, including one patient that lost 224lbs in a little over fifteen months and has kept it off for over a year and a half.

“The Illinois and Arizona clinics have been a great success, and we are so excited at the opportunity to bring this new weight loss philosophy to,” said William Barton and Dr. Katrina Mattingly their Chief Medical Director, in a written statement. “While there are many types of weight loss centers in the greater Columbus area, there is a reason Options Medical Weight Loss has had hundreds of five-star reviews, and that is because we put the patient’s needs first, we understand dieting is hard and we offer prescriptions to aid with those struggles.” “Most of all, customer service and our patient’s goals mean more to us than anything else”.
