Follow-up visits for ongoing weight loss care are a key feature of our medical weight loss program. These are schedulled in increments of four weeks (4,8 & 12weeks) and are the heart of our medical weight loss program. These visits are a chance for patients to request treatment changes and for Dr. Holland to assess progress and health.
Regular Follow-Up Visits at Holland Clinic
Ensuring Success and Well-being in Your Weight Loss Journey
At Holland Clinic, we understand the importance of ongoing support and monitoring to ensure your success in our medical weight loss program. Regular follow-up visits play a crucial role in assessing your progress, providing emotional support, and adjusting your treatment protocols when necessary. In this article, we will walk you through what to expect during these visits and how they can help you achieve your weight loss goals.
Flexible Follow-Up Options
We recognize that our patients have busy lives, which is why we offer a range of options for follow-up visits. You can choose to come in-person or have a telemedical appointment over the phone or internet. Typically, follow-up visits occur every four weeks, but we also offer appointments every eight or twelve weeks for patients who need more flexibility.
Monitoring Progress and Health
The primary purpose of follow-up visits is to determine how well your treatment is working and to monitor your health. During in-person visits, we will measure your weight and vital signs. For telemedical patients, we will ask you to provide this information. We will also carefully review your satisfaction with your care, your progress with the lifestyle changes required for weight loss, and your overall health.
Dr. Holland's Interest in Patient's Response to Medications
Dr. Holland takes a keen interest in your response to weight loss medications. He will ask about any side effects you might be experiencing, whether the medications are working subjectively, and if they are causing any problems. Dr. Holland will also inquire about your general health, such as any recent illnesses, new medications from other providers, or scheduled surgeries.
Tailoring Your Treatment
Based on your feedback and progress, Dr. Holland will determine if your current weight loss medication prescription is working safely and effectively. Depending on these factors, he can make various changes to your treatment plan:
Keep the medication the same if it's working well without side effects.
Increase the dosage in some cases to enhance its effectiveness.
Add one of several other weight loss medications to your treatment plan if necessary.
