Starting with Sam at the front desk, somehow she is able to remember everybody's names, and is incredibly flexible with scheduling appointments. She is on top of here game. Both of the providers at this location are also incredible and they are very interested in your health. They are not just here to get your money and move on. They talk to you about your needs, your wants and your goals. They are very meticulous with tracking results and how you are doing and adjusting medication such as needed. Additionally I have lost about 50 pounds in 9 months. AmazingDevon H.Devon H. ★★★★★ After over two years working with my PCP and not seeing any results, I had to change things up. I can’t begin to say how happy I am with Rivas. I have lost over 20lbs, I feel great, and I am not the only one who notices. The doctors and staff are so friendly and really listen to what your concerns are and offer great advice to help achieve your goals. Cannot recommend enough!js_loader

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.

Constipation or diarrhea

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.
