What to Expect

Here’s what you can expect on your first visit.
There are just three easy steps to your personalized weight loss plan:

Your Medical History
Your visit starts with us asking for your medical history, including any prescription or over-the-counter medication you may be taking. It’s very important for us to understand your overall health when designing your personalized plan.

Body Composition Analysis (BCA)
You will be asked to step on a special scale that will give you a total breakdown of the percentages of fat, muscle, and water in your body. Your resting metabolism and blood pressure will also be taken. This gives us a baseline of where you’ll start your weight loss plan.

Consultation with Our Medical Team
Finally, we will review your medical history and BCA results, and then will sit down to get to know you. This is the time to open up about your weight loss goals and challenges, and what you truly want to get out of a weight loss plan. In order for us to design your personalized plan, we need to get to know the whole you.

At the end of your visit, you'll have a plan, personalized just for you! If you decide to move ahead with your personalized weight loss plan, you’ll not only be following a medically proven weight loss approach, but you’ll be building a relationship with our medical team here at The Veranda, who will be your greatest support throughout the process. Initial consultation fee starts at $40.
