What type of results can I expect?

There are many factors that will affect your results. The most important factor is your dedication to the program; lasting weight loss is not a quick fix. Patients that truly dedicate to the program and are motivated have the best results. Depending on your current weight and your goals for weight loss, we have the ability to help you.

Results vary from person to person. Our goal is to help you build healthy habits so that you can successfully keep the weight off, permanently. If you are overweight, don’t give up, we can help!

Are there any conditions that are not compatible with Medical Weight Loss?

A great advantage to losing weight with the vivaMD Med Spa & Weight Management Center is that our program is safe for diabetic patients, safe for patients with high blood pressure, and other medical problems. The program is helpful in controlling further medical complications that are the result of other pre-existing conditions. It is also helpful in alleviating problems that are a result of obesity, such as: sleep apnea, high cholesterol, hypertension and heart disease.

How long do I need to stay on the program?
The duration of your program is determined by how much weight you want to lose. If you just want to modify your current eating habits and lose a smaller volume of weight, most patients are on the program for an average of 12 weeks. If you desire a greater volume of weight loss and have more aggressive goals your program duration may be longer.

How much does a consultation costs?

Consultations for Medical Weight Management are free.  Consultations typically last 30 minutes but can go a bit longer depending on the number of questions and concerns you have regarding your weight loss goals.

What does the program cost?

This is a tough question to answer since our program is multi-facetted and completely customized for each patient. During the consultation, our medical staff will discuss the options available, the cost involved with those options, and provide you with a quote for your unique weight loss plan.

Does insurance cover medical weight loss?

Generally speaking, insurance does not cover weight loss. There are changes frequently in covered procedures, so it is best to check with your eligibility department or your insurance manual to verify coverage. Since we are a private pay medical practice, we do not bill insurance. We can however provide the necessary medical documentation so that you can apply for reimbursement from your insurance provider. More information regarding reimbursement is available during your consultation.

I need financing, what are my options?

Financing is available from a third party group for patients requiring assistance. We also offer special in house financing for our weight loss patients. For more information about the financing options available, please inquire with a member of our staff. Please note that we provide financing contacts as a convenience for our patients. vivaMD Med Spa & Weight Management Center does not benefit from your relationship with this financial group. We encourage all patients to shop for the best options when making a financial decision such as this.
