Our Comprehensive Weight Loss Program designed JUST for you!
The only way to change your life is to change your lifestyle. Long term success depends on permanent changes in your day to day life. Dr. Nawab’s philosophy is to give you the jumpstart you need to achieve and then maintain a healthy weight.
The Boroughs Medical and Wellness Center is a proud partner of The Center for Medical Weight Loss, the largest network of physicians specializing in weight loss in the country. Using evidence based weight loss programs, your success is inevitable.
Your initial consultation is approximately 45 minutes. During this Dr. Nawab will review your medical and weight history, discuss your short and long term goals, and present to you what your expected weight loss will be. Your visit includes:
- Full medical history
- State-of-the-art body composition and metabolic analysis with 4-page report
- Brief physical exam
If you decide to start one of our programs, you will then receive:
- Physical Exam
- ECG (electrocardiogram)
- An order for complete lab work
There are several options available to you. Your plan may involve full meal replacement, partial meal replacement, or a detailed calorie plan using your own food, specific to your metabolic needs. For some patients, an FDA approved medicine may be used to help decrease your appetite and increase your metabolism. We also offer vitamin based injections to help stimulate the metabolism and increase energy levels. Through your body composition analysis, we can very accurately predict the amount of weight you can lose over a given period of time. Dr. Nawab will help you choose the program best suited for you. And importantly, all plans include behavioral and lifestyle counseling, activity recommendations which is a vital component to each patient’s personal motivation to achieve his or her weight loss goals.
Your follow up appointments will be weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly depending on the plan you choose. At each appointment, which is approximately 15 minutes, Dr. Nawab will monitor your health and progress, check your vital signs and will do a brief exam. Any medical issues will be addressed at this time. Counseling on lifestyle changes and general weight loss information will be discussed during these visits.
What is Medical Weight Loss?
Before discussing what it is, it probably makes sense to start with what it is not. Medical weight loss is not surgery or diet pills. It is physician-directed weight management based on medical scientific principles that target the root causes of obesity and weight gain to achieve and sustain a healthy weight in the long-term.
How medical weight loss differs from other programs
The tools that medical weight loss physicians use to help you manage your weight are very different from what you find with commercial programs. First, medical weight loss doctors use your metabolism and body composition (mainly fat percentage) as true indicators of weight loss progress. Second, they can prescribe safe, low-calorie diets that are specifically designed to help you lose weight while breaking the cycle of food addiction. And should you choose, your doctor can also prescribe an appetite suppressant for you. Finally, medical weight loss doctors have the ability to view your weight loss and maintenance within the context of your total health profile. If you have a condition that requires medication that may be interfering with your weight loss efforts, your medical weight loss doctor can consult with your primary care physician to prescribe a safe, effective alternative to lift those barriers.
Who Can Benefit from Medical Weight Loss?
Medical weight loss is designed to help any individual with his or her specific weight loss goals, whether to lose 100 pounds or those last stubborn ten pounds. Everyone is different when it comes to weight loss, but medical weight loss can be used to treat everyone.
