At your first appointment, your doctor will conduct a thorough physical assessment and talk through your general health including your lifestyle and family history, along with any health concerns you may have.
Based on this consultation and your health needs, relevant tests and investigations will be ordered to develop a suitable treatment plan to manage your weight moving forward. This may include prescription of relevant medications or supplements, along with referrals for dietetic sessions or a physiotherapist or exercise trainer to help support a healthy lifestyle. For some a referral to a counsellor for support of your emotional health may also be recommended. You will be supported and encouraged by your doctor throughout every step of your weight management journey.
