Do You Have Any Questions?



Is this a fad diet?

No. Our medical weight loss program may require we dispense prescription appetite suppressants. Because of that, every patient is evaluated individually to ensure the program is safe. For more than 40 years these medications have been FDA approved and recommended by the American Society of Bariatric Physicians.


Is this safe?

Yes. Our program is implemented and supervised by a physician. We have proven solutions and guidelines making it one of the safest methods of losing weight.


Will my life change much?

It may. In many cases, weight gain happened because of something changing in our daily lives. So, with that in mind, you may need to make some slight adjustments in your daily routine to get you to your goals sooner.


Do I have to exercise on the program?

There is no requirement for exercise, but research does show that it will increase your likelihood of maintaining a healthy weight.


How quickly will I see results?

Each person is a bit different. Most patients lose weight in the first two weeks and continue to see a reduction in their weight as they continue to the plan.

Happy patients
