Featured Image

Are you struggling to lose weight even when eating a healthy diet and exercising? At HEALOR Primary Care, Dr. Raj Singh understands that losing weight with dieting and exercise may not always produce the results his patients are looking for. He is experienced in creating a medically-supervised weight loss plan for his patients that helps them lose weight and improve their health. He evaluates each patient in Las Vegas, NV and assesses their health to design a plan that works best for their body.

What is medical weight loss?

With the help of our experienced board-certified physician, Dr. Singh, at HEALOR Primary Care, we help our patients achieve the weight loss they want with a low-calorie diet, nutritional supplements, and counseling. We understand that obesity can lead to heart disease, increased cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes, all of which shorten your life. With the help of a medical weight loss plan, our patients of all ages can live a healthier and longer life in Las Vegas, NV.

Am I a candidate for medical weight loss?

Weight loss can be difficult for many reasons, regardless of your size. Before we design your custom weight loss treatment plan, we must determine if you’re a candidate for weight loss treatment. Patients who are not eligible for medical weight loss treatment at HEALOR Primary Care are those who:

  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding

  • Have a history of heart disease, kidney dysfunction, or have a thyroid disorder

  • Have a history of cancer

What happens during a medical weight loss consultation?

To receive medical weight loss treatment, you will first have a consultation with Dr. Singh. During this visit, he will assess your health, conduct lab testing, learn about your medical history, and conduct a body composition analysis that determines your BMI and body fat percentage. Once you begin medical weight loss treatment, you must attend a weekly checkup at our Las Vegas, NV office. During these visits, we can give necessary injections, such as BCAA, carnitine, or B12, for optimal health.

Our obesity management services include:

  1. Behavior modifications: These are suggestions for diet and exercise that reduce caloric intake and get you moving, which yields a caloric deficit.

  2. Pre-packaged meal replacement plans: This helps patients transition to self-prepared meals that are nutritious, including OPTIFAST® and Advanced Health System.

  3. Weight-loss medication: HCG medication, along with a low-calorie diet, can reset your metabolism and limit feelings of hunger. Dr. Singh can also prescribe other medications based on each patient’s health.
