We work hard to make scheduling a new patient appointment efficient and simple. Call 850-696-4479 to schedule your pre-visit testing and initial appointment. You will need to complete paperwork prior to the visit.
The initial consultation begins by stepping on our body composition scale, which measures your weight, percent body fat, percent muscle, and percent water. You will then meet Jenny West, our nurse practitioner specialized in weight loss medicine. She will review your test results with you, conduct a focused medical evaluation, and see if any further testing is needed based on your medical history and physical exam findings. You will then discuss the following aspects of your individual weight loss program: behavioral modification, exercise goal, diet plan, weight loss medication if indicated.
The frequency of your follow-up visits will depend on your individual needs. We recommend a weekly visit for the first month of the program, a visit every two weeks during months two and three of the program, and then a visit every three to six months to ensure you maintain your weight loss.
