Weight Loss Program*

Medical Weight Loss Center

What is the Bay Colony Physicians Weight Loss Program?**

Our program’s foundation is built on behavioral and lifestyle modification with a medical “jump start.” Our weight loss program in Dickinson, TX provides medical assistance in weight loss to help patients lose a significant amount of weight in a fairly short period of time, but also provides long-term behavioral modification techniques to continue weight loss after the program is completed.

Initial Medical Examination Includes:

  • Medical History Review with Provider
  • Blood Work (as needed)
  • EKG (as needed)
  • A personalized Diet Plan Outline
  • Prescription for 30-Day Supply of Appetite Suppressant During Visit
  • B-12 Injection

Current initial Consultation charge is $105 with B-12 injection or $125 with the Super Slim Shot. Monthly follow-up charge is $75; follow-up visits include the B-12 injection & a 30-day prescription for the appetite suppressant, $95 with a Super Slim Shot. (Prices are subject to change.)

Realistic Goals

Realistic weight loss is 15-35 pounds per each 12-week session, with an average loss of 20 pounds. Patients within the Bay Colony Physicians Program in Dickinson, TX may continue with the program to achieve their weight loss goals as long as progress continues. Losing weight is a lifestyle change and this program is not a quick fix solution.

What prescription medication is used?

Phentermine is the prescription medication utilized in the program. This FDA-approved medication should not be confused with the popular “Phen-Fen” combination that was used about 7 years ago. Phentermine has been approved by the FDA for appetite suppression and weight loss and is not linked to any of the adverse heart valve problems seen with other appetite suppressants. The side effects of phentermine may include insomnia, constipation, dry mouth and sometimes fast heart rhythm. During the program, each person will have a scheduled appointment with the medical staff and is monitored closely. Discount cards for medications are located at the check-out counter.

What are B-12 Injections?

B-12 helps in the formation of red blood cells and is essential for nervous system function. B-12 creates a significant energy boost for the body which ultimately creates more movement for the patient which helps burn more calories. At Wellnow Weight Loss Clinic we provide the B-12 injections with the initial consultation and for any follow-up visits, shots will also be available FREE of charge!

Can I enter the Bay Colony Physicians Weight Loss Program if I am taking other medications?

This will depend on the stability of your medical problems and types of medications you are taking. Certainly, weight reduction will help control hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and a number of other medical problems. We have many patients enrolled in the Wellnow program who are taking blood pressure medications, antidepressants, diabetic medications and a number of other prescription medications. We will be happy to discuss this with you during the initial consultation.

** The weight loss program at Bay Colony Physicians is Cash Pay only.
