At our weight loss center, we prioritize transparency and realistic expectations. The results with Semaglutide are individualized, and we adhere to the clinical trial dosing regimen, adjusting every 4 weeks as needed. On average, once you reach the full dose at week 17, a steady weight loss of 1-3 pounds per week is commonly observed. We believe in letting the actual outcomes speak for themselves rather than relying on empty promises or gimmicks. Come and discover what you can achieve on your weight loss journey.

The pace of results varies among individuals. While some experience a weight loss of 5 pounds after the initial injection, others may not observe significant changes until 6-8 weeks into the treatment. Our approach involves starting with low doses and gradually increasing to mitigate potential side effects. It takes a minimum of 17 weeks to reach the full 2.4mg dose, ensuring a careful and effective progression toward your weight loss goals.

This treatment is a particularly good fit for you if you are looking for a long term solution, you have taken phentermine or another stimulant medication (like ADHD meds) before, and/or you need to lose more than 10-15 lbs.

You can not be treated with semaglutide if you have:

  • Medullary Thyroid cancer

  • Multiple endocrine neoplasia

  • Type 1 Diabetics

  • Type 2 diabetics already taking a GLP-1 medication

  • History of pancreatitis

  • Chronic kidney disease (unless cleared by nephrologist)

  • Nursing, Pregnant, or trying to get pregnant

You can still use phentermine if you have any other medical conditions not listed above.

Short moments of nausea,

Constipation or diarrhea

Fatigue

Takes away desire for alcohol

Yes, unlike vaccines or many other shots you may think of, this injection is done with a tiny needle that only goes under the skin, not into muscle. Patients often don’t realize we already gave the shot.

We do not process any insurance. Unfortunately, most insurance companies refuse to cover medical weight loss, but we are happy to provide invoices for reimbursement if your insurance does. Some patients are able to get reimbursed for the visit.

We have telehealth available for patients who live in Maryland and are interested in treatment with semaglutide. You will have a monthly video appointment with a medical provider and the medication will be shipped to your house.

Rivas on Laurel-Bowie Rd is amazing and second to none with customer service. I have been with them for 3 month and I have never encountered anyone being rude, dismissive, or incompetent. Every member of the team, front desk, assistant, not rse, doctor and even the other participants makes this place one to come back to. Each week I am greeted with a pleasant smile and taken care of as if I am the only customer. This Rivas is amazing.
