What to Expect at Your First Visit-Two Parts

(1) WELLNESS EXAM:

A staff member will conduct a wellness exam that includes Body Composition Analysis (BCA), weigh in on the digital scale, Resting Metabolic Rate evaluation (after fasting). You will also get an EKG and your body measurements will be taken. It takes approximately 40 minutes for these evaluations to be recorded.

(2) PHYSICIAN VISIT:

After your wellness exam, you will have a one-to-one meeting with Dr. Verma which lasts approximately one hour. During this consultation, you will review the details of your medical history, the physical exam, BCA, metabolism analysis, EKG, and lab results.

Dr. Verma will create a tailored medical weight loss program that is customized to your specific needs and goals. Your unique plan will include a guided meal plan, nutritional supplements if needed, behavioral and lifestyle modifications, and access to a handy digital app that many clients find helpful. If medication is required, Dr. Verma will prescribe it.

Because Dr. Verma is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and works as a hospitalist in a local hospital, he is able to adjust your medications as needed; however, he will also collaborate with your primary physician.
