Weight Loss Management Q&A

What is weight loss management?

Weight loss management is a medically supervised program designed to help you maintain a healthy weight. It incorporates nutritional education, exercise guidance, supplement protocols and (if necessary) prescription medication to encourage natural weight loss.

If you’re overweight and can’t seem to achieve your goals through traditional diets or exercise, Dr. Suarez can help. Following an exam and a review of your medical history, he can develop a custom treatment plan that aligns with your needs.

What does weight loss management involve?

The service begins with an in depth initial evaluation with Dr. Suarez and Health Coach Luisa Hays in order to assess areas for improvement in Nutrition counseling, Lifestyle and Exercise recommenations, as well as Supplement Protocols. Medication management is individualized for each case but typically involves use of peptide therapy (Semaglutide or Tirzepatide) which is provided at an affordable cost through a compounding pharmacy. Patients are encouraged to perform regular follow up visits every 2-4 weeks while under the care of Dr. Suarez, especially in the first couple of months where consistency, habit forming, and side effect monitoring is crucial to success.
