The SWL Medical Weight Loss Program

Step 1: Book your initial appointment

You can book your appointment from our website, Facebook, or over the phone. If this is your first appointment, please download, print, and fill out the formshere!

Step 2: Spend a full hour with your provider!

Unlike other practices where patients are in and out in 15 minutes, the SWL team is intent on hearing your story and issues, so that they can target the exact areas leading to weight gain. You’ll also have the program explained to you as well as have your EKGs taken if needed.

Step 3: Establish a personalized program that's a 100% fit

Medicine is not a “1 size fits all” science. We understand that each person requires different treatments, different doses, and different forms of counseling. Your program whether prescription based or not, will reflect your needs and your desires.

Step 4: Schedule your follow-up appointment

Prescription medications usually need to be refilled every 30 days. Your follow-up appointments allow us to monitor your progress and make sure that your treatments are being maximized to their fullest potential.

Doctor’s Consultation/Counseling Fee


Medical Boards has published guidelines for the treatment with controlled substances. It includes having patients return at appropriate intervals for re-evaluation. Cost is an important consideration when enrolling in a medical weight loss program.
