We Offer A Comprehensive Approach to Weight Loss and Overall Wellness.
At BWH, we recognize that along with the many difficulties that overweight or obese women face, many health problems that we address with our patients stem from obesity including uterine cancer, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), diabetes, and hypertension. To help you achieve your health and weight loss goals, we offer a wide range of medical treatments, nutritional counseling, physical activity plans, as well as educational and therapeutic resources.
Your first visit is an initial consultation that addresses your concerns and questions, any medical diagnoses you may have, and walk you through the elements of obesity treatment. Your treatment program includes nutrition (specific diet plans available), physical activity (specific training and exercise plans to be discussed), lifestyle modification (stress management, sleep, etc.), and for some, medication.
After the first visit, our patients can expect close follow-up from your provider and our staff. Facilitated group sessions and follow-up visits are encouraged for our weight loss patients. Enrollment in our weight loss program is a commitment that patients will make for 3-12 months, depending on the prescribed program. In addition, our team will communicate and collaborate with your primary care provider if needed.
Weight loss services may or may not have coverage under your insurance plan. Before scheduling an initial weight loss consultation, our team will verify your coverage and benefits and communicate with you about your out-of-pocket and non-covered costs. For those with commercial insurance and/or Medicare plans, a weight loss consultation may be covered. Before starting your program, our office team will communicate with you about your benefits and out-of-pocket or non–covered costs.
