We are a medical weight loss center located in the East Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia. We are a team of Nurse Practitioners committed to creating personalized treatment plans to assist each client with meeting their weight loss and wellness goals. We understand that there is no single plan that works for everyone, therefore we will strategically design individualized regimens.
We will encourage you to “Get in the Zone!” and you will often hear us use that slogan during your visit.
Weight loss is often viewed as an uphill battle leaving you feeling discouraged and defeated. But we want you to view it as an enjoyable journey with many challenges that you will overcome.
During this process you will travel through multiple zones before ultimately entering into your “well zone”!!! Your well zone is your desired goal (optimal weight, optimal strength, optimal endurance, and reduced health risks).
A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is an Advanced Practice Nurse who has additional education and training in a specialty area. NPs can prescribe medication, examine patients, diagnose illnesses, and provide treatment. NPs bring a comprehensive holistic approach to health care with a unique emphasis on the health and well-being of the whole person.
Most NPs have an average of 5-10 years professional experience as a Registered Nurse (RN) prior to completing a masters or doctoral degree program.
To be recognized as expert health care providers, NPs undergo rigorous national certification, periodic peer review, clinical outcome evaluations, and adhere to a code of ethical practices.
NPs are more than just health care providers; they are mentors, educators, researchers, and administrators.
NPs are committed to optimizing patient outcomes through lower health care costs and increased patient satisfaction.
During your first visit, you will be provided with multiple forms requiring completion. Next, you will meet with a Nurse Practitioner. She will check your blood pressure, check your height and weight, complete your bio impedance analysis (BIA), and perform a limited physical exam. Then she will review your medical, surgical, diet and exercise history and recommend a weight loss/wellness plan that best meets your needs.
Most health insurance companies will NOT cover weight loss treatments and what they are willing to cover is extremely limited. Payment for services will be accepted in the form of cash, credit, or debit. We offer affordable rates and payment plans for all products and services. A $15 deposit is required for all appointments booked online. Deposit will be credited to your final balance at your first appointment. Appointments must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance in order to receive full refund, otherwise deposit will NOT be refunded (no exceptions).
