Getting started with the MediSlim weight loss program is simple. Here is everything that you will need to know to start losing weight and living a healthier lifestyle. Once you are 100% sure that you are ready to start the MediSlim program, follow these simple steps below.

  1. The first step is to contact us. You can contact the MediSlim staff at 362-SLIM (7546), or by coming into our office on Wednesdays only. You can also begin the enrollment process online.  At this time we will provide you with the program enrollment materials, and you can schedule your initial consultation appointment. All that is required to begin the enrollment process is a $50 non-refundable deposit, which is applied to the initial fee and is due at this time. Any cancellations without a 24 hour notice will result in a forfeit of this deposit. MediSlim accepts cash, major credit cards, and checks, for which we must also obtain your driver’s license number.
  2. The second step is to complete your enrollment materials. You should have all enrollment materials finished and ready to hand in at the time of your initial consultation. The remaining $245 fee will also be due at the consultation. This fee is used to cover your complete physical examination, blood tests, body composition analysis, and EKG. Dr. Jain will provide you with a recommendation for your own customized weight loss program.
  3. Following your consultation appointment it is time to get started on meeting your weight loss goals. Patients in the MediSlim weight loss program have weekly follow-up visits to check their weight and blood pressure. Any symptoms or issues that emerged during the week can be addressed at this time, and adjustments to medication levels will be made as needed during this time as well. There is a $40 fee for each weekly appointment, and this fee includes the cost of the most commonly prescribed weight loss medications.

During the active phase of the MediSlim weight loss program you will receive a discounted rate to participate and work-out at a local fitness center. Fitness centers are a great tool that can help enhance your weight loss efforts. Group fitness classes and individualized personal training can help you to burn fat and tone muscle faster than you may be able to accomplish by working out on your own.

Many health insurance companies cover all or some of the costs associated with the MediSlim medical weight loss program. If you would like to contact your insurance company, then we can assist you with any billing codes. However we do not deal directly with any insurance carriers, and are not connected with any specific insurance plan. Our office can provide you with a letter of medical necessity if it is required by your insurance company.
