What is the weight reduction program?
The weight reduction program is a combination of diet, exercise, and medication, to help you achieve effective weight management.

How do I start the weight reduction program?
First you will need a physical exam to see if you qualify for the program. Your BMI, or Body Mass Index, will be calculated as part of the assessment. Other factors including your blood pressure and current health status will contribute to the exam. Based off your exam, the doctor will determine what avenue is best for you in achieving optimal weight loss. If administered medication, the doctor will inform you of your responsibilities during the program and what is required to successfully complete the program.

Please contact your doctor for further information about the weight reduction program.
