Your first clinic visit will run more smoothly if you have an idea about which medial weight loss program you would like to join; however, you should come to this visit with the mindset that your program choice may change, depending upon the conversation you have with the doctor or nurse practitioner. Our goal is to find the right medical weight loss program for you and tailor its components to your resting metabolic rate, goals, behavioral habits, and medical needs to maximize your potential for long-term success with weight loss and maintenance.
Yes, you may switch to a different program after initiating one program. During your first clinic visit, the By Design team will work with you in-depth to determine which medical weight loss program would best suit your individual medical needs and personal circumstance. However, individuals may begin one By Design program and find that they would be better served by the structure and components of another By Design program. To switch medical weight loss programs, you must first schedule an appointment to discuss options with Dr. Ard or a By Design program coordinator.
