Frequently Asked Questions About The Weightloss Program

How much does the program cost and what is included?

The North Texas Clinical Weight Loss Program utilizes an appetite suppressant medication as a willpower tool to help patients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of at least 27 or above to achieve their weight loss goals with the objective being to not only help lose the weight, but to keep it off for the long term. Our proven approach to losing weight incorporates honest, sensible dietary & nutritional counseling together with practical, “real life” tips and information that have worked for us, personally, as well as our patients. Qualifying patients* will receive a prescription for a 30 day supply of Phentermine, which can be filled at any pharmacy.

With our free prescription discount card, a 30 day supply of the medication usually costs around $25.

Weight loss patients are encouraged to weigh in weekly, and if desired, can receive B-12 shots weekly.

Initial visit cost is $200.00 (excludes medication).

Weekly weigh-in’s are free & B-12 shots cost $10.

There are no hidden costs or long term obligations; however, in order to obtain a refill of the medication, a follow up medical evaluation visit is necessary. A vitamin B-12 injection is included with the follow up at no extra cost.

Follow up visits for prescription refills are $125.00.

Until the desired weight goal is reached, patients may take the medication for three months in a row and then must take a one month break before starting anew. During the month off, patients may continue to weigh-in weekly and receive weekly B-12 injections.

*Disqualifying conditions are listed in the New Patient Forms.

What if I can't take the medication because of a disqualifying condition?

Those persons who don’t qualify for or don’t choose to take the appetite suppressant medication can participate in the NTXCWL Modified Weight Loss Program.

The Modified Program has no minimum BMI requirement.

This one time visit includes the same sensible dietary & nutritional counseling incorporating the proven weight loss approach as the Regular Program, as well as a vitamin B-12 shot, but does not include the medical evaluation or prescription for medication. No follow up visits are needed however, participants are eligible to weigh-in weekly for free and may receive vitamin B-12 shots at the program rate of $10.
