Which medical weight loss plan is best for me?

To determine which medical weight loss program best suits you, Bobbi reviews your current body weight, body mass index (BMI), medical history, symptoms, and more during a health assessment. She discusses your typical diet, exercise routine, and other lifestyle habits.

A blood test may help Bobbi determine if you have any medical concerns and which weight loss plan is the most appropriate based on your metabolism and hormones. If you need to complete this test, you visit a nearby lab or use an at-home blood collection kit. 

What can I expect during my weight loss journey?

Bobbi develops a treatment plan that may include:

  • Custom meal and exercise plans
  • Semaglutide or another weight loss medicine (if appropriate)
  • Any medication prescriptions sent to your local pharmacy

  • Motivation and support
  • Disease management (if necessary)
  • Tools that track your progress
  • Dietary supplement recommendations

You can administer weight loss injections at home after learning how to do so safely. The price of the medicine varies based on the type of medication you receive and whether you have coverage from your health insurance plan. 

Puentes Medical Consultants doesn’t bill insurance but provides the documentation needed to file claims with your insurance company. You may also use HSA or FSA funds to cover your monthly evaluation costs. 

Bobbi lets you know what to expect and is available to address any questions you may have. Plan to steadily lose weight throughout your journey until you reach your goal. She alters your weight loss plan if needed to maximize the outcome.
