One of the many benefits of our medically based program is that we can offer prescription weight loss medications to our patients. They can help the body fight hunger and cravings and make patients feel fuller.
Individuals trying to lose weight have many challenges. Many of our patients struggle with their appetite. For those individuals, we offer a variety of appetite suppressants to assist in managing their cravings. These are medications that require an evaluation of your medical history, physical exam, blood tests, an EKG, and sometimes further testing prior to starting or continuing appetite suppressants.
