What does a weight loss plan involve?
Most patients begin a weight loss plan by attending a group class for new patients at our weight loss clinic. In this class, there will be an overview of the weight loss program and all available services and treatments. Patients will complete an Obesity Medical History Form and an Eating Behavior Questionnaire to identify specific dietary and weight loss needs.
After the group class, Dr. Nwizu will determine the best weight loss program to suit each patient’s personal needs and goals. Patients will attend subsequent follow-up visits with Dr. Nwizu to track weight loss and make adjustments to their weight loss plan, as needed. These visits will range from 10-20 minutes, depending on the patient and program.
