We only see walk-ins – no appointment necessary. Just be sure to be here at least 30 minutes before our lunch break or at least 30 minutes before our closing time. We are always willing to take as much time as necessary to answer your questions.
We treat patients from 16 to 64 years; those under 18 must have a parent with them on their first visit. Those over 64 can be treated with Xenical, but not appetite suppressants.
Our general guide for treating weight excess is BMI (Body Mass Index). We will calculate your BMI for you: it is based on height and weight ratios. A normal BMI is 19 to 24, and the statistically healthiest people are those with a BMI of 21 or 22. To qualify for appetite suppressants, your BMI must be 24.5 or higher.
By state law, we can only prescribe 30 days of medication at a time, and we must recheck you in the office before continuing therapy.
If you need more information about diet, exercise, or behavior modification, please ask – we’ll be glad to help!
