What should I expect during my weight loss journey?

During an initial weight loss appointment at America First Urgent Care, a provider weighs you and determines your body mass index (BMI). They evaluate your blood pressure, other vital signs, and medical history. 

Your weight loss specialist asks about your symptoms, personal and family history of diseases, medications, lifestyle habits, usual diet and exercise patterns, and more.

You might undergo heart function testing, imaging procedures, blood tests, or other diagnostic tests to detect or rule out specific medical problems that may need treatment before or during weight loss.

Your personalized weight loss program may include:

  • Custom meal plans

  • Behavior-change therapy
