About Our Weight Loss and Wellness Center
We wish you hope, strength, and wellness during this very difficult time with COVID-19 affecting people here in Tucson and around the globe. We are here to help you stay motivated with your wellness, health, and weight loss goals. Through virtual appointments over the phone or via our telemedicine portal, you can stay connected with us. We can prescribe medication for pickup at your local pharmacy, offer health coaching, and also prescribe weight loss and immune health supplements with virtual appointments. It is more important now than ever to care for our minds, bodies, and souls. We are here to help you and our community get through this challenging time together.
We have been providing non-surgical medical weight loss for over 10 years. Our programs are based on your health history, body composition and lifestyle. In addition, we offer natural and prescription based appetite suppressants with customized healthy carb, low carb, keto, and intermittent fasting plans to help you lose weight and keep it off. We focus on science-based diets to help you lose fat, gain muscle, and also have more energy. For many people struggling with weight loss despite their best efforts, we can do further testing to determine if declining hormones are causing weight gain. This is a common side effect of the aging process. Fortunately, we can help.
How We Can Help with Weight Loss
Bio-identical Hormone therapy is a science-based method of optimizing your hormones under the supervision of our physician. A hormonal imbalance may occur at any stage of life. There are many potential factors that may be at play. These include adrenal fatigue, thyroid disease, metabolic syndrome and sexual dysfunction. In addition to addressing any imbalance of hormones, you will work with our health coach to help curb emotional eating, binge eating, and cravings.
As a result of hormone imbalance , you may be experiencing one or a combination of what have become known as the classic symptoms of aging:
- Limited energy
- Mood swings and depression
- Hair loss
- Low sex drive
- Sleeplessness and fatigue
- Poor concentration and memory loss
If symptoms like these have begun to affect your quality of life, you could be a candidate for bioidentical- hormone replacement therapy.

Meet Our Lifestyle Coach, Samreen Khan
Samreen is an integral member of the team here at Vail Medical Center and Weightloss. As our weight loss and lifestyle coach, Samreen guides patients through their wellness journeys. She is an expert health and weight loss coach who has been helping patients lose weight and change their lifestyle to take charge of their mind, body and wellness. In addition, she offers support and guidance under the supervision of our physician, Dr. Azam.
Here is a closer look at the areas where Samreen will provide ongoing assistance:
- Emotional Triggers – It’s common to struggle most with weight loss and healthy habits when you are under stress, feeling grief, or experiencing other periods of emotional distress. Samreen helps patients identify their personal triggers for binge eating, cravings, and other bad habits. She then helps to build healthier stress management skills to allow you to achieve your goals.
- Salt and Sugar Cravings – Cravings can quickly damage your weight loss efforts, but it can be difficult to manage intense junk food cravings for salt and sugar. With Samreen’s help, you can learn to break your bonds to junk food and start craving the healthy foods your body truly needs.
- Lifestyle Specific Goals – No weight loss program is one size fits all. In fact, weight loss programs that aren’t tailored to individual needs and preferences are often doomed to fail. Samreen works closely with patients to understand their health histories, daily routines, and social lives. With this information, she helps set lifestyle specific goals that you can stick to.
- Establishing a Joyful Relationship with Food – Here at Vail Medical, we believe in fostering joyful relationships with food. Dieting isn’t about focusing on what you can’t eat. It’s about treating your body to the nourishing foods that will take you further in your health and wellness. Samreen can help you build a more positive relationship with your diet and improve your outlook on weight loss.
