Medical Weight Management Programs: A Personalized Approach
Dr. Fidel Garcia
Founder of Casa Health
As a concierge medicine physician in New York City, I am aware that each patient is different and that the most efficient way to lose weight may not be the same for everyone. In order to meet the unique needs of each of my patients, I have created our own customized concierge metabolic clinic and weight management program.
The usage of drugs created especially to help people lose weight is one of the main elements of these programs. One such drug is Mounjaro, which combines topiramate and phentermine. Studies have demonstrated that when combined with a low-calorie diet and moderate exercise, Mounjaro can result in significant weight loss. Patients who used Mounjaro in a clinical trial reduced their body weight on average by 11.2%, compared to 3.3% for those who took a placebo.
Semaglutide is yet another drug that can be incorporated into individualized weight reduction treatment plans. When administered in conjunction with lifestyle adjustments, the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist semaglutide has been proven to cause considerable weight loss. In a clinical experiment, semaglutide users lost an average of 11.5% of body weight compared to 2.4% of placebo users.
Our personalized weight loss management plans includes personalized food and exercise coaching, regular weight monitoring, and other health monitoring to ensure your body is performing at its best while undergoing this journey. While many providers can prescribe you a medication, it’s crucial to work with a doctor who can monitor you personally throughout the process. Failure to do regular lab work, weigh ins, and other clinical evaluations may mean that you don’t get the results you’re looking for, or worse yet, that you experience an undesirable side effect.
At the end of the day, an individualized approach to weight management means better results for you. The usage of drugs like Mounjaro and Semaglutide, along with a change in lifestyle, can result in significant weight loss and enhanced general health, but there are also many other options we may deploy to best suit your body and your goals.

Ultimately, I understand the value of providing a personalized approach to weight management medicine. The use of medications such as Mounjaro and Semaglutide, in conjunction with lifestyle changes, can lead to significant weight loss and improved overall health.
