Visits with the medical providers will help determine the factors that are contributing to your struggle with weight loss. Our physicians and mid-levels will complete an extensive history and physical and work with you to determine appropriate treatment options, including evaluation for use of weight loss medications, changes in medications that may be causing weight gain or inhibiting weight loss, need for laboratory work-up and provide routine follow-up with you. Our medical providers will also collaborate with your primary care physician to ensure they are involved as part of our treatment team.
Visits with medical and behavioral health providers will help you develop new habits. Participation in interactive groups is also highly encouraged. Topics range from meal planning, tips for meals and snacks, mindful eating out, managing triggers, incorporating healthy changes into the family as well as several groups that focus on changing the thought process and behavior for eating. These groups help provide broader health information so that you can get started with the basics and allow for individual visits to be tailored to your specific needs.
Our Medical Weight Loss pathway includes working with a physical therapist to identify how best to incorporate exercise into your new lifestyle. You will begin with individual appointments and group fitness opportunities, with an end-goal of a self-sustaining, long-term plan to continue your weight-loss success.
Proper nutrition is an important part of non-surgical weight loss. Therefore, you will have individual visits with registered dieticians. They will guide you to make good decisions about food, changing negative behaviors about food, and provide tips and tricks for your new lifestyle—all with a goal to help you reach your weight-loss goals.
