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.

We’ve all been on diets and all failed. Well, this time Skip and I desperately needed help to overcome my limited mobility due to back surgery that didn’t go as expected. Kitsap Medical Weight Loss ISN'T a diet. It’s a life style change that has been the most positive thing to happen to us in years, and years. We learned what our worst enemy is when eating… CARBOHYDRATES. After 5 months we’ve both lost over 35 pounds and have learned we eat to live, not live to eat. Dr. Ellen and her staff have been incredible. The first month was very difficult but we learned what we could and couldn’t eat and received lots of positive support suggestions and recipes to try. And we don’t even miss potatoes, pasta or French fries any more. For the first time for as long as I can remember I can see my toes. Some visceral fat disappears in the first two weeks. It gives you more incentive to keep going. I am more mobile and stand up straighter and walk better. GIVE IT A TRY. You won’t be disappointed.*
