The weight loss program is medically supervised where you will receive:
Body mass index screening Meal recommendations Fitness recommendations (customized to fit your lifestyle needs) High blood pressure screening Wellness counseling to continue a healthy lifestyle Incremental goals Prescription for an appetite suppressant
We follow Dr. Magarino's motto: “I’m not here to judge you, I’m here to help you.”
At each monthly visit you will be treated with care by Sandra George, APRN-BC and skilled staff. We want to help you on your journey to healthy living. To that end, we are also able to prescribe non-diet medications such as antibiotics or blood pressure medication. Many of our patients use us as their primary care doctor even after meeting their goal weight.
In an effort to better serve you, the program is affordable, customizable, and designed to be realistically attainable. Our follow-up visits are short (typically you will spend less than 10 minutes here* so many of our patients come before work or on their lunchbreak) and are scheduled monthly, instead of weekly, since most people lead busy lives.
*To help you plan your appointment, we want to let you know the times you might wait a little longer than usual: we are typically busier when we open/reopen and about an hour before we close.
