Medical weight loss and physician-guided wellness in Indianapolis
The doctor will see you now! Few medical spas in and around Indianapolis or Hamilton County have an on-site physician to help you with your weight loss goals. EssenceMD does, and has a proven weight loss approach. Dr. John Fry is a board-certified cardiologist that can help you lose weight, maintain a healthy weight, and keep your heart healthy.
Diet and exercise are only part of the weight-loss challenge
Our food preferences, diet, and exercise routine are only part of achieving a successful BMI. As we age and genetics alters our bodies, losing weight can be challenged by a number of other reasons:
- Hormone imbalances in men and women
- Stress and personal crises
- Medications that cause water retention or weight gain
Consult a doctor for weight loss treatment
Wellness centers, gyms, and spas can help a lot of people. But advanced medical conditions require diagnosis and treatment from a doctor.
Dr. John Fry has practices in Downtown Indianapolis and Carmel. After your initial consultation, blood work, and a full patient history, we can give you clinical recommendations for weight loss medications, meal replacements or meal plans, supplements, and other obesity-beating options.
FAQs about medical weight loss programs and nutrition
What’s the difference between a nutritionist and a physician when it comes to obesity?
A physician is able to prescribe medications, unlike nutritionists. In addition, EssenceMD’s on-site cardiologist can offer advanced information about treatments and services that can affect your heart.
Are bariatrics or surgical options available?
For some patients, yes, but EssenceMD does not provide surgical procedures. We can, however, refer you to qualified surgeons during your consultation.
Are their weight loss centers or a weight loss program that can help in addition to EssenceMD?
Exercise and eating well are always recommended. We can discuss options suitable for you and your weight loss plan during a consultation. EssenceMD also provides wellness solutions, supplements, and treatments.
I don’t live in Indianapolis. Can EssenceMD see me virtually?
Yes, for some consultations and treatments. Any on-site procedures such as EMSCULPT would obviously require an in-person visit.
What sort of lifestyle changes should I expect to make as part of my weight loss journey?
Eating well and exercise are top contenders. We would always recommend a patient consults with a physician before starting any weight loss program, just to ensure your heart and body health is up for the kind of programming you’re about to embark upon. Everyone’s weight loss needs are different in order to lose weight and keep it off. And all patients have unique body types that can alter how you lose weight. EssenceMD also offers a lot of non-surgical methods to alter your body composition and appearance.
