Guiding You Through Your Weight Loss Journey

If you've tried to lose weight for a while, you may have some anxiety about what to expect. It's normal to be nervous before your first appointment.

At your first appointment, your doctor will talk with you about:

  • your weight loss goals,
  • what your day-to-day routine looks like (diet and exercise),
  • how long you've tried to lose weight, and
  • your medical history.

Your doctor's goal is to help you find the best treatment so you can lose weight and keep it off in the long-term.

Your doctor will talk with you to determine whether you'd benefit from treatments like:

  • simple diet and exercise,
  • stress management,
  • behavioral or mental health therapy,
  • weight loss medications, or
  • more permanent treatments like bariatric or weight-loss surgery.

Your first appointment will last for about 60 minutes.

Follow-up appointments will last for about 30 minutes.

What Will Happen At the End of My Appointment?

When you leave your appointment, you will have:

  • any prescriptions your doctor gave you,
  • orders for any lab tests (if needed), and
  • a plan for next steps to improve your health.
