Dr. Wiita is a graduate of the University of Minnesota Medical School. She became board certified in Family Practice after completing her residency in the Mayo/St. Cloud Hospital program.
She earned her undergraduate degree in Food Science and Nutrition and became a Registered Dietitian before going on to Medical School. After residency, she worked for several years at the Park Nicollet Eating Disorders Institute, now known as Melrose Institute. She later transitioned to working with overweight and obese patients at the Park Nicollet Bariatric Surgery Department and eventually returned to Melrose to develop their Medical Weight Loss Program.
During her years at Park Nicollet, Dr. Wiita did extensive training in weight loss medicine and passed the board certification exam to become a Bariatrician. Having struggled with family history of obesity and with her own weight, Dr. Wiita understands the pain that obesity can cause, and she is passionate about helping you, as a patient, lose weight successfully and keep it off.
Like her patients, she has tried multiple methods to lose weight and keep it off. There are many promises of losing weight without having to work at it, lots of lose weight fast schemes, and volumes of advice available...And there are lots of ways to spend your hard earned money on weight loss, which can be very frustrating and confusing.
Dr. Wiita had been very skeptical about hCG weight loss during the era when there was inconclusive evidence regarding the results. This stemmed from availability of homeopathic hCG (available online without a prescription) and different interpretations and plans for losing weight with hCG.
Dr. Wiita trained in the Clean Start Weight Loss Program and has been testing the program herself so that she can fully understand the program and experience firsthand what you will go through while on the plan. The program uses pharmaceutical grade hCG, which is not available without a prescription.
With over 68,000 patients using the program to lose weight, in addition to her own weight loss of over 50 pounds so far, Dr. Wiita is confident about using the program to you lose weight. Although the hCG weight loss program is a superior program, Dr. Wiita understands that some people are looking for other options. She is available for consultations on a per visit basis to supervise other weight loss efforts. She draws on her experience as a dietitian and bariatrician to help you find the perfect weight loss plan for you.
If you've already lost weight, that's great! You are welcome to join our long term weight maintenance program to keep it off permanently.
