Are Prescription Weight Loss Medications Right For Me?
While we feel the gold standard for long term successful weight loss for those that are significantly obese is Weight Loss Surgery, we recognize that the journey to the new you can be reached down many roads. If you’ve struggled with diets in the past and found yourself giving up due to hunger, consider our non-surgical physician assisted medical weight loss program. Depending on the individual, FDA-approved weight loss medications are used as a tool to help decrease hunger and cravings in conjunction with nutritional counseling to help you reach and maintain a healthier weight. Some prescription medications may not be used indefinitely but are used to give you time to focus on developing healthy lifestyle habits.
Our medical weight loss programs include:
- Ongoing guidance and support.
- Nutritional and exercise counseling to help you develop healthier habits.
- Meal replacement products to cut calories and improve satiety.
- Weight loss medications, including appetite suppressants, to encourage weight loss (depending on individual needs).
- Body composition analysis.
- One-on-one Physician-supervised program.
