6 Compelling Reasons to Choose a Medical Weight-Loss Program

Embarking on a weight-loss journey can be a challenging endeavor, and seeking professional guidance is a crucial step toward achieving lasting results. The New York Bariatric Group (NYBG) offers a specialized medical weight-loss program that consists of nutrition counseling, exercise, and weight-loss medications. While weight-loss drugs and injectables, such as Ozempic or Wegovy, can be an effective short-term strategy, the long-term success and safety are still being researched and is unknown. Here are 6 reasons why choosing NYBG for your weight-loss journey can make all the difference.

  1. Comprehensive Support Program: A successful weight-loss journey extends beyond medications, and NYBG recognizes the importance of holistic support. Their comprehensive program includes access to nutritionists, psychologists, recipes, and support groups. This multi-faceted approach addresses the various aspects of weight management, ensuring that you receive the guidance needed to make sustainable lifestyle changes.
  2. Regular Follow-ups with Board-Certified Practitioners: Consistent monitoring and guidance are key to a successful weight-loss journey. NYBG's medical weight-loss program includes monthly follow-ups with board-certified medical practitioners. These regular check-ins allow for personalized adjustments to your treatment plan, ensuring that it aligns with your evolving needs and progress.
  3. Monitoring and Collaboration with Physicians: NYBG goes the extra mile to ensure your overall health is monitored throughout the weight-loss program. Regular blood work is conducted and communication with your primary physician is established as needed. This collaborative approach ensures that your weight-loss plan is seamlessly integrated into your broader healthcare strategy, prioritizing your well-being.
  4. Prescriptions by Board-Certified Professionals:One of the primary advantages of opting for NYBG's medical weight-loss program is the assurance that a board-certified medical professional is overseeing your treatment. This expertise ensures that the medications prescribed are not only effective but also safe for your unique health profile. Trusting your weight-loss journey to a qualified professional can make a significant impact on the overall success of your program. 
  5. Efficient Prior Authorization Process: NYBG's authorization department is renowned for its efficiency in obtaining prior authorizations for medications promptly. This streamlined process not only saves valuable time but also ensures that you have access to the prescribed medications without unnecessary delays. Commitment to a swift authorization process reflects NYBG's dedication to providing seamless and effective medical weight-loss solutions.
  6. Advanced Diagnostic Services: NYBG stands out by offering additional diagnostic services such as at-home sleep studies, metabolic testing, and specialized scans for detecting fatty liver disease. These advanced diagnostics provide a comprehensive understanding of your health, enabling the medical team to tailor your weight-loss program with precision.

Choosing a medical weight loss program is a big decision, and NYBG's offering stands out for its commitment to excellence and comprehensive support.

Nicole's success story

I hit my goal weight ... and I feel fabulous

I had the gastric bypass. I am Type 2 Diabetic and I wanted to gain control of my sugar. I hit my goal weight in about 5 and half months and I feel fabulous. The procedure has completely changed my life for the better because it has empowered me as a middle aged woman that I can really do everything and anything that I want to do. I don't put an age on anything. I don't say I'm too old for something.

Robert's success story

I was tired of the way I looked. I was tired of the way I felt.

I knew if I didn't change something soon, I was going to be in a lot of trouble. The consultation process was a lot easier than I expected. I was met with open arms. I was treated like I was the only patient here. Not only did they answer all of my questions, they had questions for me to make sure I was the right candidate for the surgery. After surgery and that weight started dropping off, my life started changing for the better.

I feel like a completely different person.

I had the gastric sleeve procedure. The driving factor behind me getting this procedure was my health. I didn't feel good physically or mentally.

I feel like a completely different person. I feel stronger. I feel able to accomplish more.

Eileen's success story

It saved my life.

The driving factor behind me getting my procedure was that I couldn't get up off the floor with my granddaughter. That was my why. That was my big reason for having this surgery done. After surgery, it was a little bit of a struggle with what to eat. What you put in your mouth that you don't even think about. You don't think about what you're eating or how you're eating and portion size. It's what I do now every single day. The procedure has changed my life in so many ways. It saved my life.
