Mercy Weight Management Clinic is designed for adults who desire a medically supervised weight management program that uses a team approach to help reach goals.
During the first visit, patients will meet with each member of the medical team. First, they will see June Vogelman, Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner, for a one-hour consultation and a physical exam. A meeting with the dietitian will be scheduled at the clinic that same day. After talking with all members of the team, a plan will be created. Plans are very individualized and are designed with patient input.
While some patients may strictly manage weight by exercise and nutrition, some patients may need prescribed medication. Another unique aspect of the clinic is that patients have a strong advocate in June, who will listen and treat them according to their needs and abilities.
While this clinic is for all adults who desire a weight management program, enrolling in the clinic for six months will fulfill the requirements set by most insurance companies for patients considering bariatric surgery.
Mercy - North Iowa is extremely excited to offer this service. It is a holistic concept to weight management, which makes it unique to other programs.
