Services & Medications at CCP Weight Management
Every patient is provided a custom program to meet their needs. Goals are set and monitored throughout the program and your team of providers will help you track your progress.
Community Care Weight Management is for adult patients and Community Care patients aged 16-18 years. To be eligible, you need to have either a BMI over 27 with at least one other weight-related issue such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, or a BMI of 30 or greater. If you match the criteria, speak to your primary care provider and ask for a referral to the program, and our Weight Management team will take it from there. Patients are seen by the nurse practitioner at least once every three months, and there will be other appointments as appropriate with behavioral health providers, nutritionists, and clinical pharmacists. Our teams collaborate seamlessly to offer patients a holistic approach to weight management!
Patients referred to our program receive personalized support tailored to their unique needs. Our team works hand in hand to guide you through lifestyle modifications, incorporating evidence-based practices for sustainable results. When deemed necessary and in adherence to FDA guidelines, our experienced pharmacists and providers may introduce medications as part of your weight management strategy. Our team will work with each patient and review medical history, test results, and lifestyle and determine if medication use is appropriate. Commonly used medications include Wegovy®, Saxenda®, and Zepbound®. These medications are not a quick fix. Any weight loss plan should and will include eating healthy and routine exercise.
