Dr. Donald Nelson Gardner, MD has practiced medicine in Mt. Airy, NC for 26 years. As a board certified family practice physician, Dr. Gardner deals daily with the management of chronic diseases. As a member of the Bariatric Association, and as the directing physician for Northern Medical Weight Loss, Dr. Gardner is driven to help patients gain control over obesity-related diseases. Many weight loss programs are medically-supervised, but Dr. Gardner saw the need for a medically-directed program, and Northern Medical Weight Loss has risen to that challenge.

Before It Starts

Dr. Gardner and the Northern Medical Weight Loss staff are dedicated to the overall health and preventative care of our patients. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (source: CDC), in 2008, overall medical care costs related to obesity for U.S. adults were estimated to be as high as $147 billion. People who were obese had medical costs that were $1,429 higher than the cost for people of normal body weight. Obesity is linked with reduced worker productivity and chronic absence from work. Obesity is financially costly, but more importantly obesity puts your health at risk. And these increased health risks are ones that you cannot afford:
  • Coronary heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure.
  • Type 2 diabetes.
  • Cancers, such as endometrial, breast, and colon cancer.
  • High total cholesterol or high levels of triglycerides.
  • Liver and gallbladder disease.
  • Sleep apnea and respiratory problems.
  • Degeneration of cartilage and underlying bone within a joint (osteoarthritis).
  • Reproductive health complications such as infertility.
  • Mental health conditions.

We firmly believe that by participating in a medically-directed weight loss program, such as the one directed by Dr. Gardner and developed by Northern Medical Weight Loss, you can gain control over obesity-related diseases, and get yourself on the path to health and wellness.
