Medical Weight Loss is not surgery. It is a physician - directed weight management based on medical scientific principles that target the root causes of obesity and weight gain to achieve and sustain a healthy weight in the in the long-term.
Medical weight loss is designed to help any individual with his or her specific weight loss goals, whether to lose 100 pounds or those last stubborn ten pounds. Everyone is different when it comes to weight loss, but medical weight loss can be used to treat everyone.
If you've made an appointment with Dr. Gorich for your initial consultation, here's what you can expect on your first visit. It's just three easy steps to your personalized weight loss plan:
1. Your Medical History. Your visit starts with Dr. Gorich asking for your medical history, including any prescription or over-the-counter medication you may be taking. It's very important for Dr. Gorich to know your overall health when designing your personalized plan.
2. Body Composition Analysis (BCA). The doctor will ask you to step on a special scale that will give you a total breakdown of the percentages of fat, muscle, and water in your body. Your resting metabolism and blood pressure will also be taken. This gives Dr. Gorich a baseline of where you'll start your weight loss plan.
3. Consultation with Dr. Gorich will consist of a review of your medical history, and BCA results, and then the doctor will sit down to get to know you. This is the time to open up about your weight loss goals and challenges, and what you truly want to get out of a weight loss plan. In order for the doctor to design your personalized plan, he or she needs to get to know you.
At the end of your visit, you'll have a plan, personalized JUST FOR YOU! If you decide to move ahead with your personalized weight loss plan, you'll not only be following a medically proven weight loss approach, but you'll be building a relationship with Dr. Gorich, who will be your greatest support throughout the process.
