What to expect on your first visit
Patients entering our program will first meet with Dr. Vincent Pera, MD, our clinical director. During this initial visit, Dr. Pera will conduct a medical evaluation, including a basic physical examination. Additionally, we will provide an overview of our program, gather and review pertinent medical and social history, provide education around eating, and, most importantly, listen to the individual goals of each patient. This information allows our providers and patients to determine the appropriate treatment program, tailored to each individual.
In addition to a medical evaluation, patients will meet with our Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker to address behavioral and psychological facets of the program. Patients will then have access to individual sessions with both our Nutritionist and Exercise Physiologist to complete this wrap around care plan.
Our goal is to help our patients achieve theirs!
