At Physique MD, we perform a thorough health and lifestyle assessment to gauge the optimal caloric intake for you to achieve weight loss. We adjust your caloric needs throughout the weight loss process to optimize your body’s ability to sustain and maintain a healthy weight. We believe everyone is different and your dietary plan can be customized to any dietary restrictions. This diet is typically in conjunction with short-term FDA approved medicines used to curb your appetite*. Once you achieve your goal weight, you will be transitioned to our maintenance diet plan.
Do you accept insurance?
We do not accept insurance. Our approach to medical weight loss is highly personalized and closely monitored. Unfortunately, insurance doesn’t value this level of care. However, we believe our prices are affordable and we bring value to our patients with this model of care. We are able to accept your FSA or HSA card and also happy to provide any receipts which you can submit independently.
How do I know if I am eligible?
What if I have had recent blood work already?
We will gladly accept updated lab work from an outside source and prevent any unnecessary or repetitive testing. Labs should be less than 3-6 months old at most.
Are weight loss medicines safe?
The main medicine we use is Phentermine, which is the oldest and most extensively tested weight loss medicine. You will undergo a comprehensive assessment prior to beginning the medicine and you will be closely monitored throughout your treatment
