1. How often do I have to visit for weight maintenance? 

Initially we encourage weekly visits to monitor your physical condition and your progress. But we understand that our patients are just as busy as we are, that is why we provide flexibile Times for your appointments to accommodate and work with your needs. 


2. Does my insurance cover any of the weight-loss programs cost? 

Our team wants to make this program available to everyone. Contact the office with specific questions about the first visit procedures and pricing. We tried to work with your insurance company to cover for office visits and Bloodwork. Anything that is not billable to the insurance would then come out of patient pocket. For questions on pricing, please give us a call.


3. How long do I have to stay on the program? 

As you know, weight loss is a marathon not a sprint. After you have lost the weight, we will give you the tools, support, and encouragement you need to help you keep it off. 


4. What if I only need to lose 10-15 pounds, should I so consider participating in the NuYu weight-loss program? 

NuYu weight loss program is not only for people who are extremely overweight or obese. Any person who is unhappy with or feels unhealthy due to their weight can benefit from our program. If you are already at a healthy weight or for any other reason, our staff will tell you. Your overall health and well-being are what’s most important to us.


5. What is a realistic expectation of my weight-loss results? 

On average, patients compliant with the NuYu weight loss program lose 6.4 pounds the first week and 14 pounds the first month.However, long term loss and maintenance is actually more important than first month loss.

7. What is a bariatrician?

A bariatrician is a licensed physician (Doctor of Medicine [MD] or Doctor of Osteopathy [DO]) who, as a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP), has received special training in bariatric medicine- the medical treatment of overweight and obesity and its associated conditions. Bariatricians address the obese patient with a comprehensive program of diet and nutrition, exercise, lifestyle changes and, when indicated, the prescription of appetite suppressants and other appropriate medications.

The Bariatric Practice Guidelines developed by the ASBP outline four medical (non-surgical) body fat reduction/weight loss methods: dietary modification, exercise prescription, behavior modification, medication (when appropriate).
