Frequently Asked Questions

What is Medication-Assisted Weight Loss?

The mainstay of your treatment will consist of a prescribed medication that will decrease your appetite, curb your cravings, and reduce your portion sizes. Some medications also address medical problems such as insulin resistance, PCOS, pre-diabetes, and diabetes.

Is Everyone Eligible for the Weight Loss Program?

When compared to individuals who try weight reduction on their own, medical weight loss programs frequently have better outcomes, with participants losing more weight and sustaining their success for longer periods of time.

You might be an excellent candidate for our program if you:

  • Have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 27 or more. BMI, which relies on both weight and height to calculate body fat, considers scores of 30 and above as obese.
  • Unsuccessfully attempted to lose weight previously. If past dietary changes failed or the weight came back after the initial loss, our program could help you achieve and maintain your goals.
  • Want to lose at least 20 pounds. Our medically supervised programs are especially valuable for clients with notable weight loss goals.
Are All Patients Given the Same Medications?

No. Prior to prescribing your customized medical weight loss program, we analyze your health history, lab values, symptoms, and lifestyle to design the optimal program for you.

Can I Participate in the Weight Loss Program While Taking Other Prescribed Medications?

It depends on the kinds of medications you are taking. Semaglutide cannot be taken with other GLP-1 receptor agonist medicines or products containing Semaglutide. Additionally, it’s not known whether medical weight loss is safe and effective if taken alongside other over-the-counter and prescription medications. Always discuss your health needs with your doctor beforehand.

What is the Duration of the Weight Loss Program?

Your weight loss goals, lifestyle, and preferences influence the length of your weight loss program. For instance, our Semaglutide package can last as short as 4 weeks or up to 1 year or more, depending on the dosage you need. We can help you determine what to expect at a consultation once we determine how much weight you want to lose, your body composition goals, and other factors that may influence the duration of your program.

Does Your Weight Loss Program Require Extreme Dieting or Intense Exercise?

The Shot Spot puts your wellness at the forefront. Our medical weight loss program involves gradual, monitored weight loss that considers all facets of your health. No extreme dieting or intense exercise is involved—the goal is obtainable weight loss that you maintain in the long term by achieving a healthier lifestyle. You will work toward your body goals over time, minimizing risks and ensuring you feel your best at every step of the journey.

What is considered a “healthy lifestyle change”?​

Healthy lifestyle changes (also known as behavior modification) include changes you’ve made to your everyday routine.

We focus on real foods that are sustainable for long-term weight loss. No starvation diets or shakes to buy. We believe moderation is key to health. This means eating a well-balanced diet (fruits, veggies, low-fat meat, “good” fatty foods, etc.), meal portion control, and exercising at least 3 times per week for at least 30 minutes, with a focus on strength training. Our programs help maintain fat loss and gain healthy muscle.

Is There a Long-Term Commitment or Contract Required to Join the Program?

We have no memberships or contracts to lock you in. We aim to provide results that are long-lasting, so generally, we recommend continuing treatment through its entire course. However, your goals may change over time, and we recognize that how you feel about your wellness and body can also change while on the program.

Do You Offer Ozempic, Wegovy, or Mounjaro for Weight Loss?

No, we do not offer Ozempic, Wegovy, or Mounjaro at this time because we strongly believe there are better options available for our patients. The primary active ingredient in Ozempic and Wegovy is Semaglutide and the primary ingredient in Mounjaro is Tirzepatide. Our Nurse Practitioners are able to prescribe customized, locally compounded Semaglutide and Tirzepatide injections for weight loss without the insurance headaches and continual in-office check-ups that the name-brand versions of these medications often require.

Do You Offer Phentermine for Weight Loss?

No, our office does not offer Phentermine. We recognize that because Phentermine has been available longer than medications like Ozempic, many of our patients were introduced to medical weight loss through Phentermine and may expect to receive this medication. However, while Phentermine offers benefits for many patients, it is often not the right choice for others.

Phentermine is a controlled substance with a risk of addiction and abuse. Patients can build a tolerance to Phentermine’s effects, causing weight loss to slow or stop, leading some to take more than prescribed, a dangerous health risk.

At The Shot Spot, your wellness is always our top priority. We only offer and prescribe medications that we feel confidently are in our patient’s best interest.
