Our Medical Weight Loss Solutions

Our Concierge-Style Approach to Medical Weight Loss

Healthful Life MD does not currently accept major medical insurance to cover patient care. You may wonder, “Why don’t you take insurance?”

Unfortunately, weight loss solutions are poorly covered by insurance. Most major medical insurance policies do not include specialists, such as the registered dietitians, certified nutritionists, and personal trainers. Healthful Life MD uses all the above to create long-lasting solutions for our patients.

Fee-for-Service Model

In a fee-for-service model, we provide our patients with exemplary personalized attention. We don’t over-book visits to cover costs, and this allows us to provide the highest quality of care and service. People deserve a physician who:

  • Is present with them for more than the average amount of time
  • Takes the time to listen and understand their needs and their particular situation
  • Helps them understand the science of disease and wellness
  • Coordinates their care with the other physicians with whom they are working

We love the freedom this provides us to spend ample time with our patients.

 

Say Goodbye to “One Size Fits All” Weight Loss Approach

A “one size fits all” to medical weight loss often does not provide long-lasting results. Our comprehensive approach to medical weight loss allows our patients to work with various experts working with different specialties.

You also benefit from the accountability and support from a team that embodies the values of Healthful Life MD. Every visit and interaction is our opportunity for our team to be on the same page while providing you with optimal care.
