WHO'S BEN TO A WEIGHT LOSS CLINIC?
A week ago I went to PCP to try and get my doc to prescribe phen. She told me even though she did have some patients on it she did not want to give to me even though with my BMI I was a candidate it she would not do it.. She ended up taking blood work from me and told me to come back in two weeks..UGH!
Anywho there is a weight managment clinic her in Liberty Missouri where I live but I was told that my first visit which I have to pay out of pocket would be $70 for 1st visit but that that would only be for first consultation with doc. And on 2nd visit I would have to pay 175 for blood work, EKG testing ect. I asked the nurse over phone if fer sure the doc whould prescibe phen on consultation meeting and she could not answer she said it depended on the type of program that doc and I do. UGH!!!!
My main question is has anyone been to a weight loss clinic. What exactly do they do on your first visit and do they prescribe on that day or what, and what is the usual amount I might have to be paying...
Please please I am so frustrated and only wanting help by taking phen. I just dont know and I am getting more and more depressed.

I go to one
I've only been once so far. I went on April 15th. I was weighed, filled out a general medical info sheet, then given a packet of vitamins, asked if I would prefer vitamin shots or pills, then given my phen and told to come back in a month. In all honesty I think where I'm going is just out for money lol. It is $100 a month. The nurse practitioner there said they don't do any blood work or anything.

I go to a weight loss clinic, the price sounds fairly reasonable. My first visit included bloodwork and an EKG. The cost was $200, which included one week supply of medication.
More than likely you will get phen the first day, I did. I think alot of doctors are turned off by people callling asking specifically for phentermine, because of it's possible dependency. You are, it appears (from your profile), at least 50lbs overweight, and unless there are medical issues uncovered during you exam, you will get phentermine from the clinic. Good luck to you.

To answer your question . . .
I'm seeing a Weight Clinic in Rhode Island. My doctor would not prescribe any meds to me because I wasn't considered obese [70+ pounds to lose]. With that stated, yes I'm paying a lot of money to lose weight, which I was prescribed Phentermine 30 mg. My health is worth spending the money.
Maybe you might want to see a nutritionist instead of a Weight Clinic if you cannot afford to spend the money. This is just one suggestion.
I started taking Phentermine on March 15th . . . I've lost a total of 23.4 lbs.

OK but Weight loss clinic? weight loss managment? This doc brocure says weight loss management. He is also a OBGYN. Do you think there is a difference. I mean I see like, here in my town we have a "INCHES AWEIGH" weight loss clinic do you think they are all the same. Money is not really an issue but again, I do not want to pay money when I really dont have to

I also go to a weight loss clinic, called transformations. They have been open close to 20 years now. To begin the doctor does an initial consultation, plus blood work, you see a nutritionist and then you decide what medication is best for you. The initial fee is $130 and then you pay 40 a week. I just started last tuesday and so far Ive lost 4 pounds.
My recommendation is exactly the same as libby0920 stated, wait to see your doctor in two weeks and see what he/she has to say and if the MD states that you cannot I would go to a weight loss clinic around your area.
Good Luck & Best Wishes!!

Question for GOGO...
I, too am new to MO, residing in KC. Welcome! I'm also trying to find a weight loss clinic in the area and you mentioned there is one in Liberty. WOuld you mind giving me the name of the Clinic please? I spent about an hour on the phone yesterday calling number I found online related to weight management and I found nothing. I have about a 3 week supply left from my last Doc in Michigan, so I really need to find someone fast!! Also good luck...

I go to a weight loss clinic also they charge $86 everytime you go & get the medications wich includes 2 month supply of phen,a daily multi vitamin with 1000mg b-12 with folic acid that i take 1 a week all I did was fill out papers telling them about my medical history & the med. that I was currently taken. My medical doctor is going to start checking my protien levels @ the end of this month to make sure I'm getting enough protien in my diet other than that that's all I have done.
