About Us

Dr.SamYou’ve tried everything to lose weight. You’ve visited numerous physicians and specialists. You’ve tried several diet and exercise programs. Your weight loss/gain is similar to a roller-coaster ride – many ups and downs. You’re fed up with traveling to appointments, sitting in waiting rooms and not seeing the results you want.

Or, you’re simply too busy to deal with making and traveling to appointments, but you know you need to get your weight under control.

Sound familiar? If so, Virtual Weight Management is your solution.

Virtual Weight Management is a unique and comprehensive weight loss and weight management program administered online under close and direct supervision from Samer Kafelghazal, MD – a board certified internist who specializes in weight management and bariatric medicine. Dr. Sam (as his patients like to call him) is the founder and medical director of VWM and has 15 years experience in weight management. He applies the latest treatment methods to help patients reach their goals. Delanne Galea and April Mattson, project managers with more than 10 years experience each, support Dr. Sam with patient care and communications.

Dr. Sam has been featured in Crain’s Detroit Business, WXYZ-TV, Dbusiness and The Oakland Press as an expert in weight loss and weight management.

We provide each new patient with a free, private consultation with Dr. Sam. Once you decide to move forward with one of our programs, Dr. Sam will design a weight loss program customized to your medical history and lifestyle. Whether you need to lose 10 pounds or more than 100 pounds, you will work one-on-one with Dr. Sam until you reach your weight loss goal. For inspiration, watch the video on our home page with patient Michael Evans, who lost 190 pounds thanks to Dr. Sam.

We consider obesity a disease process that requires a comprehensive approach and medical management. We never blame our patients for their weight loss challenges. Rather, we partner with them and support them to reach their goals. Often times, we discover medical conditions contributing to weight gain that were previously undiagnosed by other medical providers the patient has seen. Our programs are all online based, but they have the same effectiveness, safety and privacy as seeing Dr. Samin the office – guaranteed.

How do our weight loss and weight management programs work? We monitor each patient’s progress and medical state weekly, and if you authorize it, we communicate with your primary care physician so everyone is on the same page and working to achieve a common goal.

We communicate with patients via a HIPPA compliant online portal, video conferencing and a smartphone app designed to protect your health information and privacy.

Virtual Weight Management is a subsidiary of Middlebelt Medical Center, PLC, a Livonia, MI-based weight management center that provides quality weight loss programs, Botox, fillers, laser treatments and non-surgical cosmetic alternatives.
