“We are a Christian family-owned business with five locations in five different cities. Our first location opened in Cullman in 2007. We had so many people losing weight that the word spread fast. People drove from Birmingham and Huntsville to our Cullman location the first year of business. We soon opened in the other markets. We are excited about helping a lot of people in the Cullman area lose weight and keep it off the right way. We have had so many patients even come off blood pressure, diabetic, and cholesterol medications while losing weight on our program. We would love to help anyone who is struggling with their weight. Our team of doctors, dietitians, nurses, and weight loss professionals are well educated to help anyone in need of our services. We even provide programs to help teens, children, and those of all ethnic groups get healthy.” said owner, Hannah Erickson, Medical Weight Loss Center, 256-739-4010 or www.mdwls.com.
