At your follow-up visits, you can expect to meet with your provider and a dietitian at one of our weight loss center locations to review progress, address any new concerns or barriers, and fine-tune your game plan. Your provider may also discuss referrals to our behavioral health services, physical therapy, or other specialists as needed.
Weight loss is never a perfectly linear process without any ups and downs. Iowa Weight Loss Specialists is here to provide the support, encouragement, and tools you need for long-term success.
