Because your health is our concern, Bethany Medical created a Weight Loss Clinic devoted to helping patients lose weight the healthy way. Our objective is to help patients adopt new behaviors and a new lifestyle to boost weight loss and self-esteem. The Weight Loss Clinic is about adopting sensible eating habits and practicing portion control while staying active leading to an overall longer, healthier life, and is overseen by Dr. Andy Phung and Dr. Daniel Herlihy, Board Certified in Obesity Medicine.
We know that not all weight loss programs work for everyone. That is why we tailor each weight loss plan to the individual needs of each patient including diet, physical activity and/or exercise, medications, and support.
Tests and Assessments
During your initial weight loss visit with Bethany, tests and assessments are performed to better plan the appropriate steps to help you achieve your weight loss goal. Being overweight can increase your likelihood of having diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, arthritis, cancer, and strokes. Our medical professionals begin with screening for such problems. This may include but is not limited to:
- Spirometry test
- Chest x-ray
- Laboratory work
Tests and assessments are covered by most insurance plans and filed by Bethany Medical as a courtesy to you. You are, however, responsible for any rendered services not covered by insurance.
