My name is Leslie Ellison, and I've worked in the weight management industry for over 23 years. I'm passionate about empowering people with knowledge, and working closely with patients to achieve their individual goals. I began a new journey myself by opening Weigh to Wellness in June 2014. I love my job! My husband and I have been married for 19 years, and we've been blessed with two precious children: Gavin, 15, and Ava, 11. We also have a miniature Goldendoodle named Cash. Our family spends a lot of time at the ballpark, and we enjoy being at the lake. I look forward to providing the best in weight management care for you!
Dr. Timothy H. Real
Welcome to Weigh to Wellness! My name is Dr. Timothy H. Real, and I've been a private practice physician for over 29 years, board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. I am also board certified by the American Board of Obesity Medicine. Many of the chronic diseases I’ve treated have the major contributing factor of obesity. These diseases include heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis of back and knees, hyperlipidemia, and now, growing evidence that weight can contribute to the risk of cancer. Most doctors counsel their patients they must lose weight, but don’t provide the structure, tools, and accountability needed for this to happen. That’s where Weigh to Wellness can fill the gap. About 63% of Americans are either over weight or morbidly obese. Estimates suggest that by 2020, 50% of Americans will have diabetes or pre-diabetes, and weight control is key in prevention. We have found that when patients are motivated to make a change and lose those extra pounds, they require less medication. Let us help you get healthy and regain control of your life!
