Frequently Asked Questions
- We are professional, competent, and courteous.
- We know you value your time. We will not rush you, but we know you don’t like to sit and wait. We offer the fastest visit in Memphis!
- Convenient and low-cost medication. Most patients use phentermine, and they never have to make a second trip to a pharmacy. While we charge $25 for a month’s supply of phentermine, a well-known chain charges $55 for the same prescription.
We only take walk-ins, so you don’t need an appointment. We are well-staffed and we can get all patients in and out quickly. All we ask is that you come in before 11:30 AM Monday through Friday, or before closing time in the afternoon; we lock the door at those times and finish up the last few patients. We have no lunch break on Saturdays, but we allow our last patient in and lock the front door promptly at 1:30 PM on Saturdays, so come early!

If you are off by just a few days, it won’t matter much; we will continue the usual program. If you miss one of your visits by a week or more, we will start from the beginning again, but there will be no extra charges to you.
Lipo BCTM tablets are a more potent and effective combination of vitamins to boost metabolism and assist in weight loss.
Lipo BCTM tablets are specially formulated to:
- Increase metabolism to burn fat
- Assist the body in fat removal and transport out of the body
- Prevent abnormal accumulation of fat in the liver
- Help detoxify the liver to improve function
Lipo BCTM tablets contain many of the same ingredients as our Vitachrome shot but with some extras. (B9, Calcium, Vitamin D3, Biotin and PABA)
B9 (Folic Acid) = Good for brain function. Works with B12 to make red blood cells.
Calcium = For healthy teeth and bones.
D3 = Helps body absorb calcium
B7 (Biotin) = Necessary for carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism.
PABA = Natural, water-soluble compound that helps form folic acid. Helps prevent wrinkles, gray hair, hair loss and even protects lungs from ozone damage.
We recommend taking 1 tablet daily with food, but you can take up to three a day.
Lipo BCTM tablets can be taken alone or in combination with Phentermine.
They complement the Phentermine but are not meant to replace it.
(Phentermine is a prescription strength medication; Lipo BCTM tablets are just vitamin supplements).
There are no known side effects but the tablets contain fish oil powder so patients with fish allergies should not take them.
