We are pleased to offer an in-office weight loss program. The weight loss program is a counseling system promoting a combination of exercise with a low fat and low calorie diet. A prescription may be provided for medication that aids in the process if the patient qualifies medically. It may be necessary that certain blood work be drawn. You will need to be fasting for these labs (black coffee and/or water is ok).
An important element of the program is a monthly visit with a nurse counselor. Appointments are offered every Tuesday with our nurse coordinator, the first appointment lasting one hour, subsequent appointments lasting approximately 20 minutes. Appointments can be made through our appointment line in advance.
For more information about our weight loss program, talk to your provider at your next appointment or call our office at (334) 279-9333. Typically, insurance does not cover the lab work or prescriptions. Please check with your insurance carrier prior to your appointment.
