How many hospital branches do you have?

We have two branches, one in Merriville, Indiana and the other in Gold Coast, Chicago. You can find more details here.

Does my health insurance cover the weight loss treatment?

Physician visits, dietician sessions, some medications, and blood tests are covered by most insurance policies. However, body composition tests are not always covered and cost $75 each. Body composition tests are important for tracking your progress and will be administered at the start of the weight loss program and again every 3 to 6 months. For more information about the body composition test, please visit our website, and watch the video under weight loss the right way.

What is the cost of the weight loss program if I don't have insurance?

We offer flexible and affordable plans, designed to work with any budget. You can also enroll in the monthly membership plans to reduce the cost of each visit. For more details please visit the pricing page.

How quickly should I expect to start losing weight?

Some patients exhibit immediate weight loss within the first two weeks of starting our program, while others take between four and six weeks to start losing weight. A healthy weight loss rate is about 2 pounds per week, which equates to 8 pounds per month.
