Physical Health Services

Struggling to lose weight? You are not alone. Obesity adversely affects your health and well-being and is difficult to manage on your own. We can help. We offer weight-management services with a comprehensive medical and behavioral treatment approach.

Comprehensive Weight-Management Program

Numerous factors often contribute to weight gain and can make it difficult to lose weight or maintain weight loss unless each factor is identified and addressed. Our providers will create a comprehensive treatment plan, involving medical and behavioral treatments, that is designed to fit your unique needs,  reduce your weight, and improve your health long-term.

We don’t tell you to “just eat less and exercise more”.

We offer extensive dietary counseling, exercise counseling, behavioral/emotional counseling, and medical testing and treatment of potential causes of and results of obesity.

Medical Treatment

At every visit you will see an obesity medical provider trained in identifying and treating the biological/metabolic factors preventing you from losing weight and can help you decide if a prescription weight-loss medication may help you lose weight and maintain weight loss.

Dietary Counseling

We spend nearly 60 minutes with new patients and 15-30 minutes at each follow-up visit teaching healthy dietary habits and practical ways to implement them into your life.

Behavioral/Emotional Counseling

For many, losing weight is difficult due to stress, anxiety, emotional eating, poor habits, etc. Our team of weight-loss medical providers, mental health counselors, and life coaches can help you overcome the issues that may be hindering your ability to lose weight.

Exercise Counseling

We teach you how to incorporate daily movement and appropriate exercise goals into your specific treatment plan.

People are so kind here. They help people however, whenever they can. They never send people away. They have references if they cannot offer services at the time. They pray with you, care for you. An outstanding group of people that just want to give back to the community. Very Jesus driven!

I'm so thankful for the direction and support I've received from Branches Weight Loss! They've helped me change my life-long views about myself, my weight, my eating habits, and health in general. They offer so much more than a scale and a measuring tape! I'm much healthier and 60 lbs lighter!

Does Branches accept TennCare or Medicaid?

Regrettably, the State of Tennessee does not permit Branches to accept clients who have TennCare or Medicaid insurance, even if the client is willing to come as a self-pay client. The state has designated providers that are pre-authorized to accept these insurances. For clients with these insurances, we refer to: Harmony Health: (615) 603-2272; Dr. Deborah Driggs: (931) 486-8670; Kimara Wilson-Clarke: (931) 368-3234; Jessica Huddleston: (615) 745-3405; Rhonda Pendergrass: (615) 645-2967. https://www.tn.gov/tenncare
