How Our Program Works

Begin your program with a 60-minute Initial Weight Loss Consultation followed by weekly appointments.

Phase II

  • The prescribed diet program begins for the agreed time period.
  • Weekly consultations are scheduled with Oceanview one week in advance, 24 hours cancellation notice is required, as medications are prepared in advance for each patient.
  • Each patient is seen by a Physician or Nurse Practitioner at each visit. Questions are answered, education is provided.
  • Children are welcome, bring them into the office, you may bring them to the office during your weekly appointments, although we ask that no food or drink be brought in for our other patient’s sake. The smell of McDonalds can be tempting for some.
