Dr. Ellen Stehouwer with a patient

Kitsap Medical Weight Loss is a clinic devoted to extending the lives of Kitsap County residents in Washington. Each patient is treated with the proper care and support based on their own personal needs, preferences and circumstances.

Kitsap Medical Weight Loss offers patients the opportunity to partner with a Board Certified Bariatric physician (Dr. Ellen K. Stehouwer) who approaches obesity/overweight as a chronic disease. We use state of the art diagnostics, and a multidimensional approach with therapy including nutritional, metabolic/biochemical, psychological, and behavioral aspects. Because obesity is a chronic disease, KMWL will work with the patients to not just lose the weight, but maintain that loss.

The most unique thing about Kitsap Medical Weight Loss is its proactive medical approach to treating overweight and obese patients. Getting to a healthier body weight and composition can by itself alleviate or remove chronic conditions and physical complaints that otherwise would be treated individually, as symptoms to be suffered through. KMWL is the only medical alternative to the commercial diet programs and food replacement systems in the West Sound. Patients aren’t locked into a program or a boring routine of the same products over and over. Each patient is treated with the proper care and support they need, based on their needs, preferences and circumstances.

As a fellow health care provider in Kitsap County, Kitsap Medical Weight Loss has provided me with a resource to give my patients who want/ need to lose weight to improve their health. This is the real deal. Eat real food, learn about healthy, attainable lifestyle changes and get lots of support from a team that celebrates every lost pound with you. I have seen my patients be able to stop their diabetes medication, improve their ability to complete activities of daily living and return to active lifestyles that include travel and athletic pursuits and the best part, keep the weight off. If you have thought about trying to get healthy, this is the place to start and so much less expensive than 30/10 weight loss, Ideal protein, Jenny Craig and Nutrisystem.*
