Patients in North Fulton who need weight management assistance have a new option, with providers who will support them at every step of their journey.
Wellstar's Center for Best Health now has an office in North Fulton, conveniently located at 1360 Upper Hembree Road, just across the street from Wellstar North Fulton Hospital and inside the primary care practice of Dr. Nandini Sunkireddy and Dr. Amy Barfield.
Dr. Sunkireddy is the physician overseeing this Center for Best Health location, and she is welcoming new patients to both primary care and the Center for Best Health.
The Center for Best Health offers a comprehensive approach to weight management and includes behavioral health, nutritional therapy and dietician services, medication management, meal replacement through Optifast and exercise management. When bariatric surgery is an appropriate option, our providers will offer referrals.
Our providers tailor care to each patient’s individual needs and lifestyle, creating the right treatment plan to help each person achieve their optimal health. The interdisciplinary care team includes a physician, dietitian, exercise physiologist and psychologist.
“We support you as a team in every step of your weight loss journey until you reach your goal,” Dr. Sunkireddy said. “We all support your efforts to keep the weight off by helping you develop a healthy lifestyle.”
The Center is for people whose A1C is equal to or greater than 6.5, indicating diabetes, or those who have a BMI equal to or greater than 30 with another chronic health condition such as high blood pressure.
