Physician-Supervised Weight Loss
We are a medical weight loss facility. We use medications to aid in weight loss. We also address behavioral and dietary changes to further weight loss and instill healthy behaviors. We treat Binge Eating Disorder as well as obesity. There is no singular plan, as everyone is different and has different struggles related to weight loss.
At your first appointment, we will review your medical history, as well as try to identify your struggles and develop a sensible plan that will work with you, along with appropriate medication. We will see you back in the office once a month to weigh in and refill your medication.
Monthly visits are a requirement to make sure that your medication is helping. If at any time you feel the weight loss medicine is not working, we can add to it or change it. We do have medications here in the office, and we can electronically transmit prescriptions for any drug that the provider deems appropriate for you.
