Where Are You Located?

How Much Does This Program Cost?

Medical Weight Loss Clinic programs vary for each individual, and are individually based upon each person’s medical profile and goals. Our program is sensibly priced and will fit most anyone’s budget.

What is Included in my first visit for the weight loss program?

Your first visit will include the initial consultation with a medical assistant, an in-depth In-body scan, a B-12 Injection, a weeks worth of our appetite suppressant that we dispense here called Phentermine, and a food list that includes a diet plan for the first three weeks of the program. Additional injections, vitamin supplements and protein line are available for purchase.

How much weight will I lose a week on the weight loss program?

If you follow the program regime, it is entirely possible to lose 8-10 pounds a week especially during the first week. Of course, results may vary.

Do I need an appointment for the weight loss program or injections?

It is always best to schedule an appointment for new patients but we gladly take walk-ins for your convenience.

Are Medical Weight Loss Clinic services or products covered by insurance?

We do not directly accept insurance for our programs. However, if you have a Flexible Spending or Health Savings Account that covers weight loss services, MWLC can help provide you with documentation that will assist you in reimbursement for those types of programs.

Can I use FSA or HSA funds on this weight loss program?

The cost of a weight loss program for treating obesity may be a reimbursable expense under certain FSA and HSA plans, and any plan administrators consider Medical Weight Loss Clinic programs to be an eligible expense if certain conditions are met, and patients may be eligible to receive partial or full reimbursement for the cost of an MWLC program.

The first step for individuals interested in using an FSA or HSA account to pay for MWLC services and products, is to check with their plan administrator. Every individual’s plan differs, and the first step is to check and see if weight loss services and/or products are eligible for reimbursement under their specific plan requirements.

Do I have to see a doctor?

Brandon Medical Centers‘ weight loss clinic offers programs that are medically supervised with doctor visits, and also programs where patients are not required to see a doctor if that better fits the individual.

Do I need a prescription for the B12 or Vitamin Injections?

No. Prescriptions are not necessary for B12 or other wellness injections.

Does this involve pre-packaged meals?

Medical Weight Loss Clinic Programs consist of real grocery store foods (proteins, starches, fruit, vegetables, etc.), incorporating the use of Nutritional Protein Supplements (Bars and Shakes), to maximize your weight loss efficiency.

What if I cannot/do not want to take the Phentermine?

Our program is designed to not be dependent on the Phentermine, which is why we offer two vitamin supplements that can mimic the effects of the Phentermine for those who wish not to take it.
