Before your first appointment

The first visit to our clinic is quite extensive. It's very helpful for our team to have as much information about you as we can. Therefore, a team member will contact you prior to your appointment to gather background information. They'll ask about your medical history and any previous testing you may have had regarding your health. They will also want to hear about your lifestyle and any barriers or challenges you may have regarding your weight.

At your first visit

At your first appointment, you should plan on spending several hours with us. You will meet the members of our team for a comprehensive evaluation that will assess all aspects of your health, nutrition and fitness. We will ask you about your goals and challenges.

At this visit, you will learn more about the many factors that contribute to obesity, the medical consequences of obesity, and the treatment options. We will also explain our model of care and the research we conduct as a part of our program.
