How often do I follow-up?

The most important aspect of follow-up visits is to help you maintain your weight loss.  Follow up visits are customized to your specific needs based on your availability and the accountability necessary for your weight loss. Initially after your first consultation we will see you every two weeks.  After your first follow-up visit it will be decided if you will continue to follow-up every two weeks. From that point on your follow-up appointments are based upon your needs as established with your provider.

At your follow-up visit you can expect to meet with your provider and a dietitian to review progress towards your goals.  You might be referred to our exercise specialist to discuss adding exercise to your lifestyle.
