About Olivera Weight Management
Your Chicago Weight Loss Clinic
Making a difference in our patients’ lives through safe, sustainable weight loss.
For nearly 40 years, Olivera Weight Management at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center—one of Chicago’s leading, medically safe weight loss clinics—has been helping people lose weight, eat better, become more physically active and adopt a healthier lifestyle. We offer a holistic approach that focuses on the practical, the doable and the sustainable. We don’t promote fad diets that lead to quick weight loss—and just as often—quick weight gain. Our purpose is to help you control hunger cravings and make meaningful, effective changes in the way you live and the way you eat.
Applying proven medical expertise to weight loss.
Olivera Weight Management was started by Dr. Arturo Olivera, Sr., to help his arthritis patients relieve the stress of excess weight on their joints.
Today, his son, Dr. Arturo Olivera, Jr., has refined and further developed this medically proven treatment program to include the use of FDA-approved appetite suppressants, such as Phentermine, combined with education on diet, exercise and stress management. Our respected weight loss clinic and our experienced and caring staff provide medically monitored weight loss that is safe, sensible and delivers lasting results.
