What Can I Expect At My First Visit?
During your first visit, Dr. Maroon will measure your vital signs, go over your initial intake questionnaire and do a nutrition analysis. He will also perform a computerized weight and body composition analysis using our new state-of-the-art InBody 520. This is a professional body composition analyzer that lets you look beyond the number on the scale and see what your body is really made of!
What Happens Next?
Dr. Maroon will conduct a thorough evaluation to assess all the various factors that contribute to and perpetuate a weight problem, including a complete history, physical exam and laboratory testing. Included in this evaluation are the assessment of current and past medical problems, medications, historical weight patterns, previous weight loss attempts, behavioral eating patterns and a dietary/nutrition evaluation. This is designed to uncover any medical, metabolic or behavioral issues that need to be addressed. Dr. Maroon will then design and implement an individualized treatment plan based on your personal goals and preferences. This plan includes a nutrition strategy, behavioral changes, exercise and, if warranted, the use of medications to help control hunger. Frequent follow-up visits will include education, troubleshooting, goal setting, encouragement and accountability. Once you meet your weight loss goal, a long term maintenance plan will be designed to ensure your long term success.
