Patient Information

Mediversity offers a new, personalized, non-surgical science-based approach to losing weight and improving fitness. In addition to ongoing medical supervision and assistance, we empower patients with the knowledge and skills to proactively manage their own health. Our program goes beyond calorie counting to create a program you can maintain for life.
Those that aren’t seeing their desired results at the gym or after dieting are ideal candidates for the medical weight loss programs at Mediversity. Whether you need to lose 10 or 110 pounds, we can help you reach your weight loss goals. Our medical team will develop a customized program that will help you lose weight and transition into a healthier lifestyle.
Your healthcare professional will create a personalized plan for you that helps you succeed and begin new habits that will transform your weight, level of fitness and satisfaction. We ensure you have ongoing support and monitoring when you need it. Your own weight loss goals define how long the program ‘takes’, but health and eating habits to maintain your ideal weight or fitness requires long-term changes. Our team will help you create a plan that works for you.
Recent physicals or tests conducted by your Primary Care Physician are acceptable. For us to retrieve this information, you will be required to sign a release form during your Initial Consultation.
When you come in for your consultation, the healthcare professional will thoroughly review your medical history and discuss it with you to review any contraindications or potential issues.
Yes! A health condition is one of the main reasons for enrolling in a medically supervised program. Obesity and being overweight can be significant factors to a variety of medical conditions, as well as vice-a-versa – medical conditions and medications can contribute to weight challenges. We have the expertise and experience to ensure that your weight loss process is done safely.
The BMI or Body Mass Index is a calculation which takes your weight in kilograms (kg) divided by your height in meters (m)squared. Since your BMI describes your body weight relative to height, it correlates strongly with your amount of body fat. However, it is not a direct measure of body fat, and by itself is only an indicator of obesity/overweight. For example, very muscular individuals can have a high BMI without being overweight. Because of this, other methods such as calculating waist-to-hip circumference ratios are also used to evaluate obesity. Note that BMI is used differently for children. For Adults, these are the generally accepted ranges within BMI: Normal weight 18.5 – 24.9 Overweight 25-29.9 Class I Obesity 30 – 34.9 Class II Obesity 35 – 39.9 Class III Obesity 40+
Patients who follow their programs and maintain their in-clinic treatments and evaluations tend to see results within the month that treatment begins.
The Mediversity team will provide the program, tools and guidance to help you succeed. The success rate of the program is entirely dependent on the individual, their commitment to their weight loss program and the goals they have set for themselves.
Program fees can vary for each individual and are based on your own weight loss goals and medical needs. Book a consultation with us today to discuss your options.
We recommend you speak with your tax accountant to determine whether our program can be deducted from your taxes.
Every patient is different, and how much weight you can lose depends on your personal Body Mass Index, health conditions, motivation level and goals. Our staff will design your weight loss program and monitor your progress so that you can safely achieve your goals. Then it’s up to you to take action and follow the recommended program we’ve designed specifically for you.
This will vary by individual and your own goals. To lose weight quickly, and safely, medical supervision is highly recommended. Plus, you get the added benefit of learning habits to help you keep the weight off.
Exercise is not a required component of our approach, but we do encourage exercise and physical activity to improve your weight loss, fitness level and to help you feel better overall.
We will work with you to find a solution together that advances and sustains your weight loss and health gain goals. Sometimes our patients find they have actually gained muscle and lost fat and the scale doesn’t know the difference!
Our diet consists of real food that you can purchase at your grocery store. We educate you on appropriate food choices and portion sizes because this is not a quick fix. This program is geared to help you make a lifestyle change so you succeed in your goals. Patients looking for recipe ideas and to simplify meal planning will love our Mediversity cookbook.
