How to start?
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.
2.- Pre-visit testing
The following tests will be scheduled at least one week before your initial consultation and can all be performed during one visit to the office that will last approximately 45 minutes:
Fasting blood work: To test thyroid, kidney, and liver function and to screen for diabetes and cholesterol disorders.
Electrocardiogram: To screen for heart disease prior to prescribing an exercise program or weight loss medication
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 one of our nurse practitioners and she will conduct a focused medical evaluation and discuss the following aspects of your individual weight loss program.
4.- Follow-up visits
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.
