If you are looking for a weight loss program that is supportive, affordable, professional, and convenient, Proactive Medical Weight Management may be the place for you. Dr. Kim Thomas, a board-certified physician by the American Board of Internal Medicine, runs her bariatric – or “weight loss” – medical practice with one goal in mind: To give her patients the best care possible while also guiding them to reach their weight loss goals.

“I think what differentiates Proactive Medical Weight Management is our emphasis on quality, service, and caring,” said Dr. Thomas. “We value our patients and we strive to make their experience positive and motivating. We find that patients achieve greater results when they feel encouraged rather than lectured.” She went on to explain that her philosophy is to treat patients with “courtesy, respect, consideration for their time, and appreciation for their trust.”

After receiving her undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkley, Dr. Thomas attended osteopathic medical school at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona and went on to complete her postgraduate medical training in Arizona. She has served on the academic faculty for the University of Arizona School of Medicine, the Mayo Clinic Scottsdale, and Loma Linda University School of Medicine. She opened her first practice in Murrieta in 2006, and after seeing the demand for a second practice, she opened an office in San Diego in 2011.

Dr. Thomas explained what sets her practice apart from others: “Some weight loss programs are limited in what they can offer patients because they are not staffed by licensed physicians. Since Proactive Medical is administered by a physician, we can offer patients valuable and proven resources such as Proactive Medical logoprescription medications and compounded supplements to help them lose weight in a safe and sensible manner.”

Another unique feature about the practice is that patients get to see a physician or a physician’s assistant at every follow up appointment. “We really go the extra mile to provide a great experience for our patients in a convenient setting and at fees that won’t break the bank,” said Dr. Thomas. “We have helped thousands of patients enjoy weight loss success and look forward to helping many more!”
