Outline of Holland Clinic's Classic Medical Weight Loss Program
A very brief outline of our classic medical weight loss program.
Simple and Quick Guide to Classic Care at Holland Clinic.
This is an introduction to our Classic Medical Weight Loss Program. It is written in outline form and serves as a guide to the care offered patients. We will explore many of these topics later in much more detaill and we have included links to this information.
Our Classic program employs trusted medications like phentermine, phendimetrazine, and diethylpropion, often supplemented with a low dose of topiramate (Topamax).
We offer in-office dispensing of all our Classic program medications. This provision eliminates the need for pharmacy trips, enhancing convenience and cost-effectiveness.
Extensive research affirms the significant efficacy of Classic weight loss drugs; they outperform placebos in credible studies.
Introduced in the late 1950s, these medications have been used by upwards of half a billion people, with no evidence of severe medical complications.
Comparison with GLP-1 Drugs
Expert application of Classic weight loss drugs yields results comparable to GLP-1 agonists.
GLP-1 drugs are notoriously costly, with patients typically paying around $900 every four weeks. Classic weight loss medications, on the other hand, are markedly affordable, with patients paying an average of $80-$120 per four weeks - making them approximately ten times less expensive.
Holland Clinic Classic
An Unrivalled Cost-Effective Solution Our competitive prices rank Holland Clinic among the most affordable medical weight loss providers in the US. While most weight loss programs conceal their pricing, we believe in transparency. We encourage you to compare our prices and validate our cost-effective approach.
Caution against Deceptive Practices
Beware of clinics promising GLP-1 drugs for as low as $99 per month. Often, this fee only covers the prescription, leaving patients to shoulder the additional $900 cost for the drug. Ensure you're getting the full cost upfront to avoid such misconceptions.
Be extra cautious of clinics offering 'compounded semaglutide' injections. Unless it's FDA-approved Ozempic or Wegovy, it's likely an unapproved, potentially dangerous substance.
Insurance companies rarely cover weight loss drugs, GLP-1 or Classic, unless you have severe, treatment-resistant diabetes, hypertension, or a 'Super-Morbid' BMI. This makes affordability a significant factor in choosing your weight loss regimen.
Hype vs Reality
GLP-1 drugs, due to the social media hype, are more in demand, while the equally effective Classic drugs remain under the radar. We aim to educate our patients about the proven effectiveness of Classic drugs.
Despite the hype, many patients pivot towards Classic drugs once informed about their effectiveness.
The Holland Clinic Classic program is a time-tested, evidence-based, and cost-effective solution for weight management. It deserves your serious consideration.
