What to Expect

During your initial consultation you will meet with an expert weight loss
coach who will conduct a comprehensive initial assessment. Your weight
loss coach will review and discuss your concerns and weight loss goals,
and explore underlying factors that may contribute to your weight gain.
Following your consultation, you will be partnered with a team of medical
weight loss professionals who will provide a medical evaluation.
A nurse practitioner who specializes in weight loss and weight management
will conduct a full medical evaluation of your health, biological, emotional
and psychological issues that affect your weight.
Personalized Treatment Plan
Based upon the in-depth assessment and evaluation, your team will develop
a weight loss treatment plan to fit your unique needs. Your personalized
plan may include the following:
Diet and physical activity prescriptions
Nutrition and exercise go hand-in-hand, and your team will discuss these
two essential components with you in detail. We often deal with deeply
rooted lifestyle habits. We will provide special care and attention to
help you adopt these healthy habits in a successful, sustainable manner.
If you require additional guidance, our registered dietitian, behavior
health specialist and/or pharmacist are here to help.
Encourage and support behavioral lifestyle changes
To help you keep motivated and to reach your lifelong weight management
goals. Your team will encourage and refer you to Torrance Memorial Health
System and community based programs to teach you powerful skills and strategies
that will inspire you to live a healthier lifestyle. These programs may
include a diabetes prevention, group fitness classes, nutritional support
groups and much more.
We know that sometimes you can do all the right things and still not see
positive weight-loss results. It is possible that you have underlying
issues that causes abnormal weight gain or prevent weight loss, and these
issues may require medication to treat before you can successfully lose
weight. Our expert will assess your health and prescribe the most effective,
FDA-approved medication to treat your condition(s).
Follow-up visits allow you the opportunity to revisit topics or obtain
further information. In addition to weigh-ins, you will meet with your
team to monitor and evaluate your progress to make adjustments to your
treatment plan. The frequency of follow-up visits are based on your commitment
and treatment plan.
Initial assessment is free of charge. Medical evaluation, treatment plan
and follow-up appointments are covered through your health insurance.
Your co-payment might be requested. Additional fees, such as for consulting
with a nutritionist and registering for community-based programs, may apply.
