What is your weight loss program?

We are committed to helping you maintain a healthy lifestyle and weight. Our program consists of a series of visits that focus on helping you overcome dietary, physical and emotional barriers to successful weight loss.

How much weight can I expect to lose as part of your program?

Results vary, however our goal is to help people focus on sustainable weight loss through healthy lifestyle changes. Most should expect to lose 5 to 10% of their current weight. Many will lose more.

Is any specific diet recommended?Weight_Loss_Program_copy

Many dietary approaches are reviewed as part of our program. However, our focus is on creating a diet that is “right” for you and maintainable over time. People often lose weight with fad diets, but rarely keep the weight off. We do use Optifast products for those patients who qualify for a Very Low Calorie Diet and chose that option.

Are medications for weight loss used as part of your program?

There are several medications approved by the FDA for the treatment of obesity. As part of our program, we will review if any of these options are appropriate for you. However, our philosophy is that there is no “magic pill” for weight loss and the focus should always be on lifestyle changes that are sustainable over time.

Will my insurance cover this program?

Insurance coverage for obesity varies by carrier. Always verify with your insurance what they do and don’t cover. We will bill your visits as regular office visits and expect that the majority will be paid with no problem.

Will my primary care provider be involved in my weight loss program?

Successful weight loss typically involves a team approach. We will send your doctor updates on how you are doing with each visit and may ask them to help with managing chronic conditions that affect your weight and overall fitness.
