Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a physician-supervised approach to weight loss that is based on sound medical evidence. Care is given by specialty trained licensed health care providers.

Your specific program is tailored to address individual health issues that could inhibit your weight loss, such as hormonal and metabolic disorders. Because weight loss is complicated, you’ll receive personalized care that addresses your unique needs.

Your weight loss journey begins with a detailed intake, physical exam and body composition analysis. Your physician may order your blood work to check your thyroid, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels, and identify metabolic imbalances that could get in the way of your success.

Prescription weight loss medications like Phentermine, Qsymia®, Contrave®, Saxenda®, and Belviq® may be recommended based on clinical need to help you regulate your appetite.

Whole Foods Approach

What separates Sound Medical Weight Loss from other weight loss centers is that we emphasize eating real food for sustainable results. We do not promote processed, prepacked meal replacement programs. Instead of relying on artificial meal replacements, you learn how to enjoy real food with healthy, nutrient-rich meals that keep you full and satisfied.
