Frequently Asked Questions


Do you take insurance?

I provide a service that differs from the traditional outpatient office and therefore do not take insurance- this allows me to spend significantly more time with you to get a comprehensive evaluation, as the initial visit is 60-90 minutes long. This also gives me the freedom to conduct weekly televisits which provide accountability and quick adjustments for effective weight-loss.

Do you prescribe anti-obesity medications?

Medications are used in my VIP program and are prescribed as deemed appropriate- the FDA has approved use of these medications in patients with a BMI of 27 + one comorbidity (such as hypertension, abnormal cholesterol, diabetes), or a BMI of 30+. 


How much weight will I lose in one month?

Obesity is a complex disease with many factors involved including genes, hormones, neurotransmitters, metabolism, stress, sleep, nutrition, exercise and medications. The amount of weight loss and rate varies person to person, but since I work very closely with weekly follow-ups adjustments are made to optimize your weight journey.
