Our Approach to Medical Weight Loss
At Core Medical Center, our patients’ overall health is important to us. Our doctors believe that by combining portion control, proper food choices, behavior modification, and exercise with proven medications approved by the FDA to burn fat and suppress appetite, safe and effective weight loss will occur. Most patients report no side effects outside of losing weight.
Being overweight is a medical condition, and our physicians treat it as one. With the guidance of our trained medical staff, your chances of losing weight are significantly higher than on your own.
It’s often overwhelming to try to lose weight without guidance and direction, and at Core Medical Center we are here to give you that guidance.
It is not uncommon for us to attract patients who have tried 5 to 6 times to lose weight on their own and failed. This program is geared towards those individuals who have tried other weight loss methods and failed.
You will have weekly visits privately with our medical staff. At these visits, you will go over results and have the opportunity to ask questions or address concerns. We will also check your food and exercise diary to make sure you are staying on track. If needed, you may speak to your physician at this time as well. Our goal is to help you reach your weight loss goals and we are committed to support you in order to achieve that goal.

1st Step: Schedule a free consultation. If there is an aspect of the program that concerns you, then you are under no obligation to agree and the consultation is free. However, if you feel the program is a good fit for you, we will help you get started. If you decide to start the program we will do a physical exam, discuss realistic expectations and goals. Some select insurance spending plans cover our services and we will give you the necessary documentation to file it. Although it is not very often that this is the case, medical weight loss payment is typically a patient responsibility.
2nd Step: We provide you with all the tools to start the program. After filling out the paperwork, our doctors will do a physical exam and you will get lab work done to make sure the medications you will be taking are not contraindicated. You will be given supplements and other supplies to take home. The results to your blood work will be available in as little as 24-48 hours. If everything checks out okay we dispense the prescriptive medication used in your weight loss program.
3rd Step: You will come in for regular office checkups and counseling once a week at which time we will monitor your weight loss, fat loss and health improvements. We use an electronic pulse of energy that can distinguish fat, water and muscle. This allows us to monitor not only weight loss, but fat loss. We will look over your exercise log and food journal to make suggestions. You can also discuss with your physician how you are progressing in our program. This is a time to address setbacks, correct them early and get you back on track to reaching your goals.
