Express Patient FAQs

Beginning February 4th, 2021,  we will begin offering Express every Thursday.

Our goal with Express appointments has always been to provide patients with busy schedules a convenient opportunity to come in on Thursday morning before work or other scheduled activities. We had many patients whose treatments qualified for these quick in-and-out visits where they could meet with a provider and still maintain their busy schedule.

We know this was a popular, convenient and much-needed service and we’ve always been proud to offer them.

Remember, if you are an Express patient and want the option of these convenient visits, we will have them available on a NEW schedule on Thursdays- starting on February 4, 2021.

How to Encourage a Loved One to Seek Out Weight Loss Support or Medical Expertise

Losing weight is about more than losing five extra pounds to get that perfect summer body or fitting into that dress. It is about becoming the healthiest version of yourself. Studies show that two-thirds of the U.S. population is overweight. Those who lose weight and keep it off greatly decrease their chances of developing diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and more. While some are able to lose weight easily, for others it is much harder. Does this mean these individuals are not working hard enough? Absolutely not! Everyone is different. What works for one person might not work for another. There’s also the chance that an underlying medical condition is making it more difficult for the individual to lose weight. Seeking out weight loss support and/or medical advice is very beneficial to those who struggle with weight loss.
