Am I a Candidate?
Being overweight is not just about willpower or eating right. We are all genetically, chemically, and structurally different. Weight loss is difficult for many reasons, and each individual, regardless of their body mass, can benefit from medical assistance to maintain or improve their overall wellness.
Before we design your customized treatment plan, one of our primary care doctors will conduct a thorough health evaluation to assess your physical, mental, and emotional influences and determine which services may best suit your wellness needs.
Typically, individuals who are overweight can be ideal candidates for medically supervised weight loss. However, you may not qualify for certain prescriptions, semaglutide, or hCG if you're pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a history of some medical conditions (including heart disease, thyroid disorder, cancer, or kidney dysfunction).
How does Medical Weight Loss work?
Medical weight loss programs crafted by our physicians at HEALOR Primary Care are designed to target your individual needs and maximize your success. Since no two people are exactly alike, no two treatment plans are exactly alike either.
To receive medical weight loss care, you will need to attend a consultation with one of our primary care doctors so we can perform a thorough assessment of your health, complete a few lab tests, learn about your detailed medical history, and conduct a body composition analysis to determine your BMI (body mass index) and body fat percentage.
Once you take part in our medical weight loss treatment program, you will be asked to attend weekly checkups. During these visits, we will conduct body composition tests to ensure you are losing fat and not muscle. Your visits may also include any necessary injections as you need them, such as MIC, B12, carnitine, BCAA, triamino, semaglutide, and others.

Medical weight loss refers to a treatment program devised and monitored by a doctor.

Medical weight loss is a unique, personalized program to help you achieve a healthy weight for your body.
MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS TREATMENTS
HEALOR Primary Care offers a number of advanced methods for weight loss, such as hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) treatments, nutritional counseling, semaglutide, and other medications. All of these therapies may be utilized in tandem to help reduce your appetite, improve your diet and lifestyle, and boost metabolism for dramatic weight loss that stays off for the long-term. At your medical weight loss planning consultation, our physicians will conduct a thorough body composition analysis to assess your visceral fat, BMI, and general body shape to figure out the ideal treatment approach.
hCG treatments utilize the hormone produced by the body during pregnancy and pairs a low-calorie diet (typically around 500 calories) to reset the patient's metabolism without any feelings of weakness or hunger. This type of diet is carefully monitored by our team and has demonstrated high success rates.
Nutritional counseling is also provided by our office so our patients can learn everything they need to know about a proper, balanced diet. This is to ensure that they continue to make good habits and lifestyle modifications that see them throughout their journey and the rest of their lives.
Semaglutide injections (also known as Wegovy) are administered under the skin weekly for 16 – 20 weeks, with the dosage increasing as time goes on. Semaglutide works by imitating the hormone GLP-1, which targets receptors in the brain that control appetite and food intake. In a clinical trial, patients without type 2 diabetes lost an average of 12% of their previous body weight, while those with type 2 diabetes lost an average of 6.2% of their initial body weight.
Certain medications may also be prescribed to you, depending on your unique health needs and situation. Any prescription drugs you are given will be explained in great detail, and our doctors will let you know when and how to take your meds.
