Non-Surgical, Medically Assisted Weight Loss & Weight Management
Physician assisted weight loss, also referred to as medically assisted weight loss, is a comprehensive and medically managed approach to effective, lasting weight loss.
At OVYVO, our physician and physician assistants take a holistic approach to losing and managing weight. We work one-on-one with each patient to develop and maintain a treatment plan that may include an individualized nutrition plan, a realistic activity/exercise plan, and counseling to address behaviors that may be contributing to weight gain. As a medical weight loss clinic, we also prescribe medications to aid in weight loss when appropriate.
Who Can Benefit from a Physician Assisted Weight Loss Program?
At OVYVO, we understand every individual has unique circumstances and requirements when it comes to weight loss. That’s why each treatment plan is tailored to the individual, their situation, and their goals. If you’ve been struggling to lose weight and/or keep it off, our physician assisted weight loss program may be the ideal solution.
We treat patients who…
- have struggled with their weight for years
- have experienced significant weight gain in a short period of time
- have a family history of weight related illnesses (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart attack, stroke)
- suffer from Binge Eating Disorder
When Lifestyle Changes Are Just Not Enough
For many individuals, FDA-approved medications can play a vital role in their ability to lose and/or manage their weight by…
- Increasing metabolism
- Decreasing appetite
- Lowering the body’s set point
- Curbing nighttime eating
- Providing the energy needed to sustain a healthy lifestyle
- Changing your relationship with comfort food
- And assisting with binge eating
Your Initial Appointment
At your first appointment, we will review your medical history, identify your challenges, and develop a sensible treatment plan designed to help you lose weight and keep it off. We’ll determine what factors are contributing to your weight gain, such as your home and work environment, stress level, and your relationship with food. We also treat psychological factors, such as compulsive eating, loss of control, uncontrolled cravings, and addictive type behaviors.
Follow Up Visits
After your initial visit, we will see you in the office once a month to weigh in, refill your medication, and adjust your plan if necessary. During these appointments, we will discuss any difficulties or concerns you may have, as well as tips, strategies, and motivation to help you stay on track. Monthly visits are key to building healthy habits and lifelong positive change. We are committed to supporting you every step of the way!
