The Process

Our process starts with your first visit, which includes a medical history, a physical exam, a complete body composition scan, several lab tests (some will have EKG), an educational session in a group setting & a private consultation with the doctor.

The KMWL Process

As a medical practice, Kitsap Medical Weight Loss is on the cutting edge of obesity medicine. Dr. Stehouwer is the only board certified bariatric physician in the entire West Sound region. Kitsap Medical Weight Loss has a unique process because it’s a doctor/patient relationship that will always be tailored to the patients’ individual situation. We are not trying to sell a food replacement system, and it is not a “diet program.” Medications are often prescribed as a tool to help in the weight loss process.

The first visit includes a medical history, a physical exam, a complete body composition scan, several lab tests (some will have EKG), an educational session in a group setting, and a private consultation with the doctor. The first visit takes around 2.5 to 3 hours. The most commonly used medications are dispensed at our office.

Follow up visits are monthly, and depending on how things are going for the patient are 30 minutes or less.

I highly recommend a visit to Kitsap Medical Weight Loss for help with achieving and maintaining a healthy weight! I am truly impressed with this clinic’s wonderful, caring team, and am so thankful that Kitsap County now has a board certified Bariatric doctor! Dr. Stehouwer is the one to see whether you are a little or a lot overweight. She educates, supports and provides the tools with a diet that can easily be followed with, of course, some patient dedication! It is now my diet for life after losing 10 lbs in the first month, 45 total after appx 7 months. The entire staff is equally excited about each patient’s success, they truly care and as well they “practice what they preach” … the entire team follows the same diet. Dr. Stehouwer cares about you at a personal level. I always appreciate how she takes time to talk with me about how I am feeling and that she cares about me as a whole, not just a person on a diet. She has the knowledge and skill pertaining to weight loss that the Family Practice doctor doesn’t have, and the plan works. Thank you Dr. Stehouwer and Staff, you are great!*
