Frequently Asked Questions

The Medical Weight Loss program at ReforMedicine begins with a targeted physical examination, a number of lab tests, and 90 minutes of time with your provider.

There are no required products to buy, contracts, or hidden costs to the ReforMedicine Medical Weight Loss Program. You pay as you go for the appointments as they take place.

Medical Weight Loss patients always see one of the providers who specializes in the program. The four individuals include: Dr. Usher, Christina Funk, Dana Toenies, and Renee Carlson. Most patients start with one provider and stick with that individual throughout their weight loss journey.

If you take prescriptions for chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or others our medical staff monitors and adjusts these monthly.

People considering the Medical Weight Loss Program sometimes ask why the cost of the initial appointment is more than the follow ups. The reason is simple, the first appointment is by far the longest and most significant appointment of the entire process. Weight loss patients are scheduled for 90 minutes with the provider and have a significant number of non-invasive lab tests completed as part of the comprehensive approach to weight management. A great deal of the time is spent covering the many factors that can put you at risk for obesity and share the plan and strategies you will be using to reduce your risk and begin to make real progress losing weight. We review any other chronic conditions you may have or be at risk for, any medications you are on, and look for any other issues that may be contributing to your risk factors.
