Medical Weight Loss Doctors Questions and Answers

It is always admirable when you put your health first and aspire to a healthy weight! However, it is not always easy to do so on your own or through one-size-fits-all commercialized programs. As such, you may benefit even more in your weight loss endeavors from the knowledge of a medical weight loss doctor! At InShape Medical, we are happy to provide various medical weight loss programs to help you achieve your weight loss goals.

Does Medical Weight Loss Really Work?

There are several reasons why medical weight loss programs are a highly effective and safe way to lose weight! Unlike generic weight loss programs, medical weight loss programs are closely directed by a physician who can tailor the weight loss program to address your specific needs. As such, the success of medical weight loss programs stems from the singular focus they place on the individual and the medical expertise brought to bear on the program.

When you choose to lose weight through a medical weight loss program, your plan will be personalized to help you reach your particular goals, lifestyle, and personal preferences. Moreover, when a doctor supervises that weight loss program, they can take into account the key contributing factors to your specific weight gain and what treatments and medications your body will respond to best, given your metabolism and overall health.

In addition to medical expertise, medical weight loss programs also provide you with incredible support and encouragement throughout the journey with wellness coaches and support staff.

At InShape Medical, our physicians, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, and wellness coaches would be happy to meet you and develop a medical weight loss program tailored to your specific needs.

What type of doctor do you see for weight loss?

If you seek medical help for weight loss, there are several different doctors and medical professionals who can provide excellent treatment. Some of these include bariatric physicians or surgeons, endocrinologists, nutritionists, dieticians, or general practitioners.

What plans are available for medical weight loss?

Weight loss plans and programs vary according to the precise expertise of the weight loss clinic staff and the resources and equipment available to the clinic. At InShape Medical, we offer the following weight loss programs:

  • The Countdown – Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) medical weight loss plan
  • The Slim-Down – Quick Weight Loss
  • The Sugar Slayer Program
  • Prescription Appetite Suppressants

What is the difference between medical weight loss and weight loss?

While there are numerous commercial weight loss programs that you may or may not have heard of, including Weight Watchers® (now known as WW®), Jenny Craig®, and others, the main difference between these and medical weight loss programs is that the latter are closely guided by a medical doctor and are focused on the individual, while the former are generalized programs aimed at helping broad swaths of people. In this way, medical weight loss programs are a more flexible, personalized, and supportive way to lose weight.

How can I lose weight fast medically?

While there are numerous ways to lose weight safely, effectively, and quickly through medical treatment, it is best to consult with a medical doctor first about which treatments or programs will be safest and most effective for you. At InShape Medical, we happily offer free initial wellness consultations to new patients, and we would be happy to schedule one with you to help you decide which medical weight loss program will help you lose weight safely, effectively, and quickly!
