If you have decided that you need assistance with your weight management or loss plan, and you are reaching out to a Doctor in Pasco County, then be sure that the Doctor of your choice will actually be the one that monitors your weight management. Often times, you see assistants in some major clinics and not the Doctor.
First, you should remember that the key to a long term loss of weight success is the change in your behavior. If you can do this on your own, you probably don’t need a doctor.
All patients who initiate the Full Weight Loss Service will have the following services performed:
- Blood Work
- Medication Management
- Dietary Management
- Bi-weekly weigh-ins
- Physician-Managed Program
- Support Staff.
We offer both solutions with and without medication control.
What is a Medical Weight Loss Program?
A medical weight loss program is a safe and effective treatment option for patients looking to make life-long changes to their weight management. In consultation with a doctor, these programs provide a variety of non-surgical options for patients looking for guidance and support during their weight loss journeys.
Who qualifies for a Medical Weight Loss Program?
Candidates usually fall within one of these two categories:
- A BMI of 27 or greater with health conditions associated with weight gain
- A BMI of 30 without associated health conditions

Our Program Treatment Options: Oral Medication
Get the benefit of added weight loss assistance from injectable or oral treatment options with Semaglutide. Semaglutide are prescription medications primarily used to treat type 2 diabetes with the off-label benefits of being an appetite suppressant and maintaining weight management.
Rybelsus is a Semaglutide oral medication used to treat type 2 diabetes through the regulation of insulin production. In combination with weight loss and nutritional consultations, Rybelsus has also been shown to aid patients seeking to lose and manage their weight.
Phentermine is an oral prescription medicine used as an appetite suppressant for weight management. Phentermine can help you feel less hungry throughout the day or make you feel fuller longer. Phentermine is approved for use up to 12 weeks and is meant to be used in conjunction with a weight loss management plan that includes healthy eating, increased exercise, and lifestyle changes. Phentermine is best used by patients struggling with obesity or who are overweight and have not been able to lose weight through diet and exercise alone.
Bontril is an oral medication that mirrors the effects of feeling full and suppresses the appetite. In consultation with our doctors, Bontril is an option for patients who are on doctor-approved nutritional and exercise plans and should only be used with an effective weight loss management strategy.
