Medical Weight Loss

Our programs are personalized to meet your individual needs and lifestyle

Are you ready to reclaim your health and vitality? Are you searching for the underlying health issue that is causing your symptoms and undesired weight gain? Are you unsure of your next steps to healthy weight loss and maintenance? No matter where you are on your journey to wellness, we are here to support you. Whether it’s optimizing your diet, balancing hormones, overcoming autoimmune disease, or healing a leaky gut, we’ll customize a nutrition program that is best suited to help you address the root cause, beat the symptoms and achieve your goals. By using detailed health histories and laboratory testing (dependant of doctor recommendation), we create a highly-tailored plan for individuals to lose as little as 10 pounds to those who need to lose more than 100 pounds. At JB Medical Wellness Clinic, our mission is to help you maintain your new weight for the long-term and enjoy improved health and energy.

Evaluation and Weight Loss Plans

Have you been trying to lose 10-20 pounds for as long as you can remember? Whether you are looking for a diet as an adjunct to an exercise program or a diet plan designed by a medical provider who has experience in weight loss, Dr. Bakos and his professional team can help you achieve that long-sought weight loss success. Did you know that losing as little as 5% of your body weight, which, for many people, amounts to just 10-20 pounds, can make a big difference not just in how you look and feel about yourself, but in your health? Women who are slightly overweight tend to drop one dress size for every ten pounds they lose. Men will usually drop one inch from their waists for every 10 pounds of weight they lose.  Men and women alike improve their heart health risk factors by losing even small amounts of weight. For example, for every pound of excess weight you lose, you decrease your blood pressure by 1%.  Give JB Medical Wellness Clinic weight program your commitment, and we will partner with you to help achieve your goals.

How is medical weight loss different from regular weight loss programs?

To achieve long-term weight loss, it’s important to make lifestyle changes to support your goals. That’s why the best weight loss programs focus on establishing healthy eating habits and a regular exercise routine.

What sets our medical weight loss therapy apart from regular weight loss programs is the inclusion of prescription appetite suppressants like Phentermine. These appetite suppressants make it easier to follow a restricted-calorie diet and focus on establishing new, healthy habits, thereby contributing to faster weight loss that stays off for the long-term.

Depending on your individual weight loss goals and health history, Phentermine may be prescribed. 

There are many other medications and the doctor will discuss these with you when appropriate.

Your Initial Visit

Our first priority is your overall health and well being.  On your first visit, you will fill out intake forms that focus on areas of your medical history.  You will initially meet with Dr. Bakos and one of our medical assistants and you will have a minor physical that measures your vital signs,  do a computerized weight and body composition analysis and calculate your BMI. These measurements are taken so that we can better understand your weight-related health risks and help you track your progress through your weight loss program. During this visit, we will also take your photo. Most of our patients enjoy comparing that photo with ones taken later in their weight loss program. It can be a very rewarding comparison.

Weekly Check In
Our weekly visits are designed to help you lose weight effectively, quickly and safely with individual attention and personal support throughout your weight loss journey. We like you to visit us each week to weigh in, have your blood pressure checked, refill medications and ask questions.

Since keeping the weight off long-term is key, we will continue to be with you every step of the way as you near your weight loss goal.  When you have reached your goal, we will be here for ongoing weigh-ins, electronic body comp analysis and encouragement. You may want to add supplements like B12 and lipoplex injections when you visit. We highly recommend a weekly or bi-weekly maintenance program for continued support and personal accountability.
