How to Get Started on Your Weight Loss Journey

Want to lose all that weight? The first thing you should do is attend one of our free weight loss seminars. We provide in-person seminars as well as an online seminar.

The next thing you should do is contact your insurance provider regarding bariatric benefits.

If your insurance covers surgical weight loss below are some testing and documents that you should start completing.

  • Chest X-ray
  • Labs (CMP, CBC, Iron and TIBC, TSH, Fasting Lipid Panel, A1C, Vitamin D, 25 Hydroxy, Vitamin B12/folate, Vitamin B1)
  • EKG
  • Primary Care Physicians Letter (sample letter under patient documents)

Discuss your decision with your family physician. Your primary care physician’s support is important.
