  • Effective, long-lasting results

Melissa tailors each medical weight loss program to your unique needs, lifestyle, food preferences, medical history, and more.

Which weight loss plan is best for me?

To determine which weight loss program is best for you, Melissa weighs you, determines your body mass index (BMI), and checks your blood pressure and other vital signs. She completes a physical exam and reviews your lifestyle, medical history, possible symptoms, medication regimen, and meal and exercise preferences.

You might need a blood test to evaluate your hormone levels, cholesterol, blood sugar, and other indicators of possible disease risk factors.

What happens during medically supervised weight loss?

Melissa develops a custom nutrition and weight loss plan just for you. She takes into account your food preferences when developing menu plans to ensure your program is something you can stick with long-term. There are multiple weight loss plans you can choose from based on your budget and needs.

Melissa prescribes hormone therapy or appetite-suppressing medication, if needed, to make your weight loss journey as simple and effective as possible. 

You also have the option of vitamin B12 injections, methionine inositol choline (MIC) injections to break down fat, IV nutrition therapy, PiYo™ exercise classes, and more.

Melissa can help you manage diabetes, high blood pressure, or other diseases when necessary. It’s important to take any medications exactly as directed.

How long does it take to lose excess weight?

Follow up with Melissa in person or virtually weekly, monthly, or as needed until you reach your ideal weight. She alters your treatment plan whenever needed as you begin to lose excess weight. 

You can expect to drop about 1-2 pounds weekly, up to five pounds per week, in some cases, until you reach your goal. Melissa also helps you maintain your new body weight long-term.

Such suppressants make it easier to effectively reach your goal weight and maintain it long-term. They make the perfect addition to a medically supervised weight loss plan.

Are appetite suppressants right for me?

She checks your vital signs, weighs you, calculates your body mass index (BMI), and develops a customized medical weight loss plan. She prescribes you a medication that works best with your unique needs.

What happens when taking appetite suppressants?

Appetite suppressants are meant for use in combination with a nutritious meal plan and regular exercise program. You might take oral medicines or receive a weight loss injection. It’s important to take the medicine exactly as directed.

Additional effective weight loss strategies include getting plenty of sleep (at least seven hours each night), drinking more water, keeping your body moving, and eating nutritious foods. Melissa answers questions you may have about your weight loss program and follows up with you regularly to make sure it’s working. 

She can adjust your medication or nutrition plan whenever needed.
