A very understanding staff - weight loss clinic 9/24/2005

The staff at Stem Ross is very friendly, and understanding with regard to weight loss issues. They offer both day and night appointments. You can also obtain your medications through them, at a reasonable cost, or they will give you a prescription for you to fill on your own. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for a weight loss clinic. PROS: Very friend staff CONS: Can be a little pricey. more

  • <p>Medically supervised weight loss center. Nutritional guidance, appetite suppressant medication ,B-12 injection</p> <p>Dear Patient:</p> <p>Obesity represents a significant health hazard and the National Institute of Health has recommended that it should be treated. Modalities of treatment have been largely ineffective, especially for the long-term maintenance of weight loss. This we feel is due to the notion that obesity is an illness, not unlike hypertension or diabetes. The diabetic needs to receive his medications everyday, all his life to keep his diabetes under control. Likewise, the obese individual needs his treatment everyday, all his life or the obesity will recur and a hazardous "YO-YO" phenomenon will develop.</p> <p>Different people have varying types and degrees of obesity and their treatment plan may have to be different. We will attempt to construct the best plan for each one of you but our basic philosophy will apply to all. We believe that the reducing diet should be low in calories of course, but you should be able to adapt it easily from family meals or when eating out and it should be of a reasonable cost. Otherwise, you would not put up with it for a long time. This is why we do not suggest liquids and powders and monotonous prepared meals.</p> <p>We believe that the source of calories is as important as the number of calories and we urge you to greatly reduce the fat and nearly eliminate the simple sugars from your diet. Your diet should not contain more than 15% of the calories from fat. Secondly, we include anorectic medications to help you control your appetite. We urge you to drink large quantities of water and eliminate regular sodas and other sugar drinks. And last, but not least, we urge you to adopt a program of regular, non-strenuous exercise. We believe in educating our patients in the nutritional and caloric values of food and usher them into behavior modification and retrain them in a new set of eating habits. We like our program to be effective and successful so we insist that the patient do their share. We expect their full cooperation, patience and persistence. In turn, we pledge our full support, encouragement and careful follow-up.</p>. <h1>The Principals Of Our Program</h1> <p>Obesity is an illness and should be treated as such. Everyday for the rest of your life.</p> <p>Causes of obesity are beyond the patient's control. Being obese is not the fault of the patient.</p> <p>The anorectic medications are safe and effective. Their use is no longer limited to 12 weeks. They may be used for long periods as long as they give good clinical response.</p> <p>As you join our program you will find yourself in a pleasant atmosphere,where the doctor and the personnel pledge to you their support and encouragement. You,of course,are asked to do your share. Should your weight loss be inadequate,we will attempt discretely to find out why and correct the cause of the failure. (Without shouting at you,degrading you or upsetting you.) We will be happy for your success and we will express our feeling by sincere and kind rewards.</p> <h1>Our Plan Of Treatment</h1> <ul> <li><strong>Practical</strong>- The patient and family eat the same type of foods,even when eating out.</li> <li><strong>Affordable</strong>- We do not sell any ready-made expensive meals.</li> <li><strong>Safe</strong>- Adequate results with minimal medications.</li> <li><strong>Allows</strong>large amounts of the "right" foods so that the patient has no sense of deprivation and punishment.</li> <li><strong>Incorporates</strong>behavior modifications and training in a new set of eating habits with the hope of obtaining long term,sustained results.</li> <li><strong>Brings</strong> about slow but sustained weight loss.</li> </ul> <h1>Plan Recommends</h1> <ul> <li>Very low fat diet</li> <li>Very low simple sugar</li> <li>Selective restrictions of the High Glycemic carbohydrates</li> <li>All green vegetables</li> <li>Most fruits allowed</li> <li>Moderate sustained exercise</li> <li>Medications we use include: <ul> <li>Appetite suppressant medications (Always up to date on type,safety and effectiveness)</li> <li>Chromium picolinate or nicotinate</li> <li>Antioxidant vitamins</li> </ul> </li> </ul> <h1>Initial Office Visit Includes:</h1> <ul> <li>Instruction booklet</li> <li>Fat Finder</li> <li>Review of medical history</li> <li>Physical examination</li> <li>Body/Fat analysis</li> <li>Blood work</li> <li>Vitamin B12 injection</li> <li>New patient conference</li> <li>Basic Medications: <ul> <li>Appetite Suppressant</li> <li>Chromium</li> </ul> </li> </ul> <h1>Follow Up Visits Every 2 Weeks Includes:</h1> <ul> <li>Weight</li> <li>Analysis of body fat and lean composition</li> <li>Blood pressure</li> <li>Vitamin B12 injection</li> <li>Visit with medical personal</li> <li>Basic medications</li> <li>Support and encouragement</li> <li>Practical suggestions</li> </ul>
