BayouMD Weight Loss and Wellness was formed to provide patients of south Louisiana a safe, effective weight loss management system.  While south Louisiana is ranked one of the happiest places to live in the United States, we are also among the highest ranked region in the country for obesity.  So how do we change these statistics when our south Louisiana culture is centered around food?


Drs. Jennifer and Michael Straney asked themselves this exact question. Both having gained 40 pounds since medical school and seeing firsthand the negative effects that obesity contributes to a person’s overall health, they were ready for a lifestyle change. Through a balanced diet and moderate exercise, together, they lost 80 pounds*. It was not easy. It took education, discipline, and time. Their next step was to share their experience with their patients and use what they had learned to help others achieve their weight loss goals.  And through their personal weight loss journey, Bayou MD Weight Loss was born. 


*Individual results may vary based on your needs and meeting with the doctor.

We have created a medically supervised and personalized approach to weight loss. Even if you have tried and failed to lose weight on your own, do not give up. Sometimes you just ‘Can’t Lose it All Bayou Self’. Our team is dedicated to helping patients create a healthy and balanced lifestyle that works, and allows them to continue to enjoy and be proud of the culture of south Louisiana.
