Frequently Asked Questions:
How long does the initial consultation normally last?
We suggest that you schedule approximately an hour for the initial visit. When you schedule your new patient visit, we will mail or email your new patient paperwork to complete prior to your visit. Completing the paperwork before you come in for your initial visit can help prevent unnecessary wait times.
Can I continue past the initial 3-month period?
Yes, we realize that after the initial period, you may desire to lose additional weight. As long as you have maintained compliance and experienced results, our providers will continue to work with you until you have reached your goal/ideal body weight.
Can I combine a “sick” visit at ExpressCare with an AtLast program visit?
AtLast is a customized program designed exclusively to assist in achieving a healthy weight and cannot be combined with a visit for illness. You may be seen for your AtLast appointment and a sick appointment on the same day, but the two visits will be charged separately.
Can I participate in the AtLast program if I take other medications?
With very few exceptions, those who take other medications can participate in the AtLast program. During your initial visit, our physician will spend time with you discussing your health history and any circumstances that might prevent your participation in the program.
Are appetite suppressants prescribed?
Based on the findings of your consultation with the physician, a program will be customized to optimize your weight loss efforts. As part of the customization, our physician may prescribe FDA approved appetite suppressants and/or other medications that have been found to be effective for weight loss.
Does AtLast include a diet and exercise program?
Yes, diet and exercise are important components to any healthy weight loss plan. Our physician will go over a plan that best suits your needs and lifestyle. You will receive this during your initial visit. We will not require you to go to the gym, but once you start experiencing the positive benefits of our program you may find yourself being more active and full of life.
