Meet our Medical Team
Because the process of recovering from eating disorders can cause physical symptoms and medical complications that are potentially life threatening, patients being treated at Summit are monitored onsite by our medical team consisting of our nurse, physician and psychiatrist, all of whom are experienced in the treatment of eating disorders. Proper medical monitoring and intervention are essential components of recovery. Summit is the only medically-supervised, comprehensive treatment program in Sacramento, California, serving both adolescents and adults with anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder.
