Millions of Americans battle with weight loss every day! LifeMed Institute is dedicated to helping our patients win this battle offering several medical weight loss programs helping hundreds of our patients lose weight.
Based on medical and scientific evidence physicians can target the root causes of obesity and weight gain to achieve and sustain long-term weight loss. Working with a doctor to help you manage your weight is very different from “commercial” programs. With a medical weight loss program a physician can prescribe medications to help ensure your success. Additionally, if you have a condition that requires medication this can be prescribed or if you are on one that may be interfering with your weight loss, a physician can see if other options are available.
No, medical weight loss is something anyone can benefit from (barring contraindicated medical conditions). Whether a patient has 100 pounds or more to lose or just needs to get those last few pounds off a medical weight loss program can help!
Weight loss of any kind takes dedication, emotional fortitude and consistency; all of which are much easier with support! Here at LifeMed Institute, we make sure you have that help. Patients are assigned a point of contact available via phone and email to answer your questions or just help you through a difficult day. Patients will also meet with this person at designated times to have their progress checked (weight, measurements and body fat percentage); this schedule will range from weekly to bi-weekly depending on the program prescribed. In addition, the physician will be available for follow-up appointments.
