01

INITIAL CONSULTATION (45-60 MINUTES)

Prior to your visit you MUST fill out and submit our initial intake form, which helps give us detailed insight to your medical, social, and psychological history that may be affecting your weight.  During our initial visit we will review your history together and touch base the FIVE areas what we will be working on together during your weight loss journey:

  • Identify and treat underlying medical causes of weight

  • Utilize medications to help with weight loss if indicated

  • Nutritional planning

  • Exercise recommendations

  • Work on changing behaviors

This initial visit is strictly a consultation to review the history of your weight journey, and introduce you to different treatment options targeting the five areas mentioned above. We will regroup at our second visit for an in-depth discussion on the treatment plan after you have had time to take in all the information from our first visit.

02

SETTING A PLAN AND EXECUTING IT

After your initial consult, we will see you two weeks later to start your plan. After that, we will see you monthly. We have discovered that regardless of what plan we help you pick, the biggest predictor of success is sticking with the monthly follow up. Some patients will need to be seen more often.

03

MAINTENANCE IS KEY

Once you have reached the maintenance phase, we recommend being seen every 12 weeks. It is often harder to keep weight off than to lose it, and regular long term follow-up is key to help maintain the weight you have worked so hard to lose.

Most people
will start to lose weight their first month of making lifestyle changes.
Many people lose most of their weight in the first 6-9 months.

Being ready to commit to change is the key to getting the most out of

your effort.

Our Personalized Evidence-Based Weight Management Program is offered to you at 
$450 for 9 months

due prior to initial consultation

After month 9, we should have you in the maintenance phase of the program, where we can start to spread out our visits to every 3 months.

The additional membership charge covers all factors included in each individuals' customized comprehensive medical weight loss plan developed using evidence-based medicine by our Obesity Specialty Care physician (see "About Our Program" above). The membership charge helps support this effective and sustainable model of care that unfortunately is not fully covered by insurance.

This fee covers the first 9 months of the program, and is in addition to any co-pays or deductibles that apply per visit. Most visits are covered by insurance, and we will be happy to discuss if your plan is accepted.  Cash pay patients are also welcome.

REQUIRED NEW PATIENT FORMS

If you are scheduled for an initial consultation, please make sure to fill out and send us a copy of a completed New Patient Intake Form at least three (3) business days prior to your visit.

 

A copy of the contract is available for you to review ahead of time, but you will fill it out when you check in for your initial consultation visit.
