Weight Loss Q & A

What are the benefits of a medically supervised weight-loss plan?

While there are many weight-loss diets, most don’t take you or your health into consideration. Obesity is a disease that requires medical management. 

The benefit of the medically supervised weight-loss plan at Primary Medicine of Sherman is that it takes you and your very unique physical, emotional, and mental health needs into consideration. Dr. Hernandez and his nurse practitioners, Brittany Brown, NP, and Julie Thomison, NP, create a comprehensive plan based on scientific research that’s personally designed for you.

The medically supervised program isn’t just about eating the right foods, it’s about identifying and treating the root cause of your desire to overeat, alongside the physical causes. 

What can I expect during my first weight-loss consultation?

At Primary Medicine of Sherman, Dr. Hernandez, Brittany, and Julie want nothing more than for you to succeed at losing weight and do everything they can to make you feel comfortable during your first visit. Your exam begins with a body composition analysis, which helps Dr. Hernandez and his team determine how many calories your body burns, as well as your body fat, muscle, and water composition. 

The team also reviews your medical history and conducts a comprehensive examination to determine if you have any underlying health issues that may impair your ability to lose weight. 

What is the medical weight-loss plan?

The medical weight-loss plan at Primary Medicine of Sherman is a comprehensive plan individualized to meet your weight-loss goals and health needs. Some of the approaches Dr. Hernandez and his team may use include:

  • Prescription medication to manage side effects or emotional eating
  • Vitamin and mineral supplements to support health and aid in weight loss
  • Metabolism boosters
  • Meal replacements
  • Customized food plan
  • Appetite suppressants, if needed

Dr. Hernandez, Brittany, and Julie not only provide you with all the tools you need to succeed, but they also offer ongoing support. Losing weight isn’t easy and requires sustainable lifestyle changes. Dr. Hernandez and his team understand how hard it can be to make these lifestyle changes and they have made it their goal to guide you through the process in a professional, supportive way that helps you gradually adjust.

The medical weight-loss program at Primary Medicine of Sherman isn’t a quick-fix diet plan, but a diet focused on helping you make the necessary changes that support lifelong success.
