Q: What happens at the first visit?

During your initial visit the doctor or nurse practitioner will obtain a medical history and perform a physical exam based on which he or she will customize the program for you. He or she will then explain and discuss the program with you and answer all your questions. You will then receive your prescriptions and laboratory orders if needed. By the time your initial visit is over, which can take 30 minutes to one hour, you will be ready to start on your customized weight loss program.
