Quality of life Medical Center (QLMC) was founded by Dr. John McGettigan in the late 1990s in Tucson, Arizona. QLMC is Dr. McGettigan’s vision to create a single-facility medical practice focusing on both the patient experience and the total health of each person under a doctor’s care.
A Unique and Multi-Speciality Practice
The mission at QLMC is to provide superior care to our patients, to create a lasting relationship with our patients and to embrace the individuality of our practitioners. Our providers are encouraged to practice medicine around their interests. We have Doctors, Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistants that specialize in sports medicine, hormone and age management, thyroid management, men’s health issues, pain management, well women and much more.
QLMC is a multi-specialty medical practice working closely with our research division (QLMRC) in patient management and recruitment. This sizable multi-specialty practice allows our research providers to maintain a constant presence on the front lines of patient care.
Because we are so heavily involved in cutting edge device and pharmaceutical research our practice is always learning always challenging and always looking at the latest ideas in medical care.

QMed Weight Loss Clinic, located in Tucson, Arizona, was developed because we saw the struggles of our medical practice patients and felt we needed a dedicated program that maximizes success, draws on our research and expertise and provides short and long term success.
Medical Weight Loss Clinics
In today’s busy medical practice we found it difficult to truly roll up our sleeves and work hand in hand with our patients to get the weight off and improve their overall health. The current medical insurance fee for service market didn’t allow our providers to partner with our patients in their weight loss program.
We started QMed because we realized that telling our patients on their annual well exams to ‘work on losing some weight’ just didn’t cut it. Our patients needed education, more time with our providers and a series of research backed options to get the weight off and to keep it off.
This program is based upon years of medical practice, knowledge from multiple medical disciplines and scores of medical studies. Our weight loss program hopes to get to the core reason why problems like diabetes, hypertension and obesity occur.
The obesity epidemic in America and in Arizona is straining all aspects of the health care system. In order to truly help change patients lives, physicians needed to build a program that attacks the problems of obesity from many angles and with the latest technologies.
