Woodlands Weight Management & Wellness Center is a medically supervised program, which means that you will be cared for in a clinical setting by a nurse practitioner with specialty training in obesity medicine working under the direct supervision of a licensed physician.
We are skilled at managing the medications used to treat common conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, high cholesterol, and diabetes. Our goal, however, is to help patients achieve healthy weight loss and better manage these conditions with as little medication as necessary.
All patients undergo metabolic and cardiac testing so we can create a safe weight loss plan that meets your individual needs. We review your current medications to identify any medications that may be promoting weight gain, and we prescribe all FDA approved weight loss medications if they are indicated. We work with your primary care or referring physician to ensure your weight loss plan complements your ongoing medical treatment plan.
Because we are a medically supervised program, health insurance plans cover your treatment in our program. All Medicare insurance plans and most commercial insurance have “wellness” benefits that cover weight loss management at no cost to patients. Our office staff will be able to tell you what, if any, co-pay, coinsurance, or deductible would apply to your consultation.
