The program will begin with lab work and comprehensive initial consultation where you will meet with our practitioner for a medical exam and history review. Our practitioner will conduct a body composition analysis and EKG. Based on review of ANS testing, medical history, blood panel, current prescriptions, and weight loss goals, our NP will design a customized weight loss plan.
If you choose to proceed, this will be a 3-month commitment which will include 7 visits with our medical provider where you will be asked to account for your diet/exercise regimen. During your in-office visits, the medical assistant will weigh you, administer your B12 Booster (increases metabolism and energy) and calculate your BMI. After your medical exam and history review the Nurse Practitioner will determine if you are a candidate for a prescription appetite suppressant.
Common reasons why someone would not qualify for a prescription is a BMI below 26.5, high blood pressure, or a history of heart problems. If you are a candidate, our NP will write a 15 or 30-day prescription. We require that you return regularly to meet with the practitioner for a physical exam, diet and exercise review, and also refill your prescription (if needed).
Prescription weight loss options include Liraglutide (Saxenda), Tirzepatide (Mounjaro), Naltrexone (Contrave), Orlistat (Xenical), Phentermine, Semaglutide (Ozempic, Wegovy)
