How It Works

Four steps to a healthier, more fulfilling life

1. First Visit: New Patient Evaluation.

We start with a 45-minute evaluation by a physician, which may be billed to your insurance or you can pay out of pocket.


2. Second Visit: Start Your Program

At your “Start Program” visit, you’ll be enrolled in the program of your choice and get access to all of your program materials and the Sound Weight & Wellness App. We’ll also review or order labs, provide full program instructions, and schedule your follow-up visits.


3. Three or Six Month Programs

During your weight loss program, you'll receive medical oversight, accountability, nutrition guidance, meal plan samples, education, and effective strategies to support your weight loss.

You’ll follow up with your physician at least once per month, get bi-weekly body composition analysis weight checks, and daily online support.

You’ll be able to securely message your weight loss team and share your tracking progress with your provider.

4. Maintenance

Upon completion of your program, enroll in our Balance for Life Maintenance Program to receive continuity of care and essential support for continued weight loss and/or weight maintenance.

Our weight loss programs are surprisingly affordable. Because our programs are physician-supervised, the provider visits and many of the labs are covered by most insurances, helping to lower your-out-of-pocket costs.

Our Quantum Medical Weight Loss program is a preferred corporate weight loss program and may be included in your employee benefits. Ask us about your corporate employee benefits coverage.


Physician Visits

Billed to Insurance*
Our program is supervised by Dr. Christine James, a Naturopathic physician. Contact your insurance company to ask if you have Naturopathic coverage. For our cash-pay patients, ask us about our self-pay fee structure.


Program Enrollment

Your monthly program fee is for the essential support services and materials you receive that are not billable to insurance. You’ll get comprehensive educational materials, an easy-to-follow program guidebook, body composition analysis reports, an online app with daily inspiration, audios, videos, and our bi-monthly support group.



Maintenance Program

Stay connected with your weight loss team. The Balance For Life Maintenance program gives you continued access to the essential resources and support you need to maintain your weight loss.


*Patient is responsible for physician office visits, insurance co-pays, deductibles, lab fees, medications, supplements, and any other fees that are not covered by insurance.



Can I use my Flex Spending Account or Health Savings Account for the Enrollment fee and appetite suppressants?

Yes. This is a medically supervised weight loss program and is prescribed by a licensed healthcare provider. Medications and/or supplements prescribed by a physician may also qualify as medical expenses under some plans.


Are there Medicare or Medicaid options?

Yes, we have modified plan for Medicare and Medicaid. Visits with Naturopathic doctors are not included in these plans.


Are there other expenses I should plan for?

Insurance coverage and deductibles vary with each policy. Typically, insurance plans do not cover nutritional supplements and specialty labs, which may be recommended for your treatment.
