How does medical weight loss work?

Many patients can lose weight…only to see it return. At Digestive Care Specialists’ weight loss clinic, we use medications to treat the biological/hormonal drivers of weight gain to help you lose weight and keep it off. You will undergo a medical evaluation by our weight loss specialists, and then get a prescription for the medication appropriate for you. You will continue to be under medical supervision, while our registered dietitians work directly with you to achieve sustained weight loss by creating a plan tailored to your individual needs and medical history.


Does each person have a different medical weight loss plan?

Losing weight takes more than willpower; there are often many underlying medical, genetic, hormonal, behavioral, and other factors involved. Our providers are certified in obesity medicine. They will work with you to decide which medication is best for your case. Our dietitians take a holistic approach to your overall wellness and create individualized, scientific-based comprehensive plans. Each plan incorporates nutritional, behavioral, and exercise recommendations that are the most effective for your unique physique.


What is the process of each medical weight loss consultation?

You will have an initial medical consultation (in person or virtual) with one of our providers certified in obesity medicine. You will receive a prescription for the medication deemed medically appropriate in your specific case (such as Semaglutide, and other medications). You will have regular medical follow-up visits to monitor your progress and adjust your medication. You will have one-on-one visits with your dietitian and you will have their undivided attention so you can share and discuss your medical history, lifestyle, goals, concerns, and discuss your progress. During these meetings, you will receive mindful eating counseling, individualized meal plans, coaching, and nutrition guidance.

Maintain a healthy weight over the long term.

Maintaining a healthy weight over the long term not only helps you feel better, but also reduces your risk of developing many health problems, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and heart disease.

We accept most major insurance plans. However, if your insurance plan does not cover weight loss, we do offer self-pay medical weight loss packages: Discover our self-pay weight loss packages
