Physician-Guided Weight Loss Services
In the United States, the obesity rate stands at 42.4%, the first time the national rate has passed the 40% mark. Rates of childhood obesity are also increasing: about 19.3% of US young people, ages 2 to 19, have obesity. Wellness Medical Clinic provides a physician-guided weight loss program that includes comprehensive metabolic and hormonal testing, with medical diagnostics to monitor physiological shifts throughout the program. Prescription weight loss has been proven to be safe and effective for some patients through clinical trials. We provide more natural weight loss options with vitamins and supplements for others.
Our program is always physician-assisted, and it includes:
- Expert Consultation: Discuss with your expert medical professional your current concerns, health history, genetic background, and your desired goals.
- EKG: A non-invasive, quick procedure that measures electric signals in your heart to determine whether you have certain forms of heart disease.
- Bloodwork: To help identify any potential blockages in the upcoming plan, such as hormone in balance or other sources of problems that may be negatively affecting your weight.
- Fat and Body Composition: Body composition refers to the portion of the fat you have relative to lean tissue, bracket muscles, bones, body water, organs, etc. This measurement clearly indicates your thickness, and we will track your fat loss and muscle gain progress.
- Weight Loss Medication: Weight loss medications help individuals lose weight by suppressing appetite because it affects the part of the inner brain that controls our impulse to overeat. Along with diet and exercise, the medication boosts metabolism, burns fat, and helps shed pounds.
- Lipotropic Injections: Patients get Lipo-lean injections. The key components in this weight loss injection are methionine, inositol, choline, L-carnitine, and B12. These weight loss injections aid in the fight against mental and physical fatigue and can help manage stress levels. Lipotropic injections aim to speed up the removal of fat within the liver. The liver is one of the body’s vital organs, and the liver's primary function is to remove fat and toxins from the body. The amino acids are present, and they believe injections can stimulate the liver to enhance the process of metabolism.
BioTE and Women
Hormone therapy can be traced back over 2200 years when the Chinese isolated sex and pituitary hormones for medicinal purposes. It is estimated that in Ancient Greece, at least 50% of women died by age 34. Additionally, they believed that women were inferior to men and that a woman’s value was based on fertility, so menopausal women were not the focus of much literature or study.
By the Victorian era, physicians believed there was a link between the womb and the brain, making all women susceptible to insanity. This was thought to be especially true of women in menopause. As a result, they believed the only logical treatment was to lock up these women in asylums.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a natural alternative to traditional hormone replacement therapy. Bioidentical Hormones are created from plant chemicals found in soybeans and yams, a more natural alternative. The body knows how to best use the hormones because they are identical to the molecules produced by the body. BHRT can come in oral, topical, and pellet forms. BHRT uses pellets (smaller than a grain of rice and placed in the fatty tissue underneath the skin), offers a consistent release of the hormone, and may help address rollercoaster-like effects. The body is given what it can no longer produce. Hence, treatment is tailored and individualized for every patient. In the long-term, men and women will have a reduced incidence of Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, and osteoporosis. Also, multiple studies have shown a long-term reduction in breast cancer. Testosterone and estradiol also improve lipid profiles, reduce triglycerides, and increase HDL cholesterol, which can positively benefit the cardiovascular system. Therapeutic testosterone levels can also protect the body from diabetes and prostate cancer.
BioTE and Men
Do you feel decreased sex drive? Less energy? Mood changes? Poor sleep?
Chances are, your testosterone levels may be too low.
Hormone balance is not just a problem among women. It is natural for men’s testosterone levels to decrease as they get older, as early as 35. The male sex hormone testosterone plays a central role in a man’s strength and muscle mass, energy and stamina, and zest for life. Testosterone levels peak during adolescence or early adulthood and decrease after age 30. When they drop too low, it can leave you feeling like a shadow of your former self. But you can take action to reverse this.
Peptides are strings of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins. There are many peptides, each of which has a different role in your body. Some common benefits include anti-aging assistance, improving muscle growth, promoting weight loss, fighting bacteria while promoting wound healing, etc.
Peptide treatment uses natural and non-invasive supplements. It is helpful for your overall health and wellness and is effective for your health plan.
Are you suffering from urinary incontinence? It can be uncomfortable and embarrassing to talk about our sensitive areas. Urinary incontinence is usually caused when the muscles in and around the bladder do not work the way they should, causing the urine to leak when physical movement or activity such as coughing, laughing, sneezing, or heavy lifting puts pressure on your bladder.
What is Votiva Vaginal Rejuvenation?
It is a non-surgical option for vaginal rejuvenation and tightening; to regenerate vaginal tissue and strengthen the existing structures offering internal support. It uses Radio Frequency energy.
How Does It Work?
It uses radio frequency energy to rejuvenate the vagina, labia, and vulva, inducing tissue remodeling by gently hitting the skin and surrounding tissues. It is a versatile treatment for vaginal rejuvenation and an asset to many aesthetic and minimally invasive treatments.
How Long Does It Take?
Votiva, a non-surgical tightening, takes about 30 minutes for the average body part.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
With just one session, your results will last for a few weeks. With a series of three sessions performed once every four weeks and yearly maintenance, results can last for more than 4 years.
Why Do I Get Vaginal Laxity or Vulvar Enlargement?
Vaginal tissue can become stretched out due to childbirth or large hormone changes like menopause, leading to increased laxity in the labia and thinning of other vaginal tissue. Many women may feel self-conscious due to the appearance of loose skin in their gentle areas. Furthermore, vaginal looseness can lead to other health concerns, such as repeated vaginitis, urinary incontinence, and loss of intimacy in a relationship. This quick, painless treatment may help you restore your inner confidence.
How Does Labiaplasty Help Us?
Suppose you were experiencing discomfort in your genital area due to large vulvar tissue. In that case, you might also be experiencing irritation and discomfort in the genital area while having sexual intercourse, wearing tight clothing, and exercising. Aviva is an alternative to Surgical Labiaplasty to treat the discomfort of the genital area, the labia, or its appearance. This procedure is non-excisional and could restore the normal function and aesthetic appearance of the genital, vulvar, and vaginal area to a much younger and youthful appearance. We provide Aviva and Votiva treatments at an affordable price at our Wellness Medical Clinic. Our skilled female Physician will meet with you before treatment and discuss your specific concerns to create a personalized treatment plan.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
What is Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma Injection therapy is a regenerative therapy in which the patients are injected with platelets extracted from their blood. PRP injections are the most suitable for the treatment of torn tendons, injured muscles, and any kind of sports injuries. Though this therapy is becoming very common in cosmetic treatments, not everyone is a good candidate for this therapy.
Are You an Ideal Candidate for PRP Injection Therapy?
Anyone having the following health conditions is not recommended to receive platelet injection therapy:
According to a survey by the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, an estimated 18 million men over 20 experience some degree of erectile dysfunction (ED). The study found many risk factors for ED, including diabetes, lack of exercise, poor circulation, and simple aging. Regardless of what causes erectile dysfunction, a poor erection can tremendously impact your mental well-being and self-confidence.
The P-Shot or HIM shot, also called the Priapus Shot, is a regenerative injection containing Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). It can help in the area of erectile dysfunction while improving sexual stamina and sensation and also boosts your self-esteem. It has been shown that the injection of PRP helps to improve blood flow to the penis, resulting in stronger, longer, and more sustainable erections.
Many men feel they have improved girth with the P-Shot almost immediately after the procedure. Increases in the health and function of the penis are expected to occur approximately three weeks after the therapy. As with any medical procedure, not all patients will experience every benefit of the P-Shot®.
PRP Joint Injections
Platelet Rich Plasma is a Regenerative Injection Therapy used to treat many soft tissue injuries (tendons and ligaments).
Doctors use PRP therapy to treat osteoarthritis. The theory is that the platelet-rich plasma might inhibit inflammation and slow down the progression of osteoarthritis. It is believed that it stimulates the formation of new cartilage and increases the production of natural lubricating fluid in the joint, thereby easing painful joint friction.
What is the Difference Between PRP Injections and a Cortisone Shot?
PRP injection is NOT the same as a cortisone injection; cortisone injections are only temporary pain relievers that do not alter the underlying cause of the pain. However, PRP offers pain relief and tissue regeneration and has a more prolonged healing and pain relief time. Most procedures, including plasma therapy for joints, take 30-35 minutes, and healing takes place over a few weeks and months.
We treat the following musculoskeletal conditions with PRP:
Trigger Point Injections
A trigger point (TP) is a tender area of muscle that develops when the tissue surrounding the muscle, called fascia (or myofascial), contracts and sticks to itself. They are often identified as painful “knots” under the skin that can cause pain in the area where it has developed. They could also feel tight and contracted, even when trying to relax, and they are often sensitive to the touch. The affected area may even become inflamed or swollen. Trigger point injections are pain management treatments that involve injecting a local anesthetic combined with a steroid medication into a trigger point to relax muscles and relieve pain.
Are Trigger Point Injections Nerve Blocks?
Trigger point injections are not truly nerve blocks; rather, they are muscle blocks. Muscles that are chronically tense or in spasms become tender and painful, and the pain triggers more spasms, and a vicious cycle develops. Chronic pain is usually associated with poor posture, injury to the muscle, poor mechanics leading to muscle stress, joint disorders, tension headaches, fibromyalgia, or myofascial pain syndrome. Physical therapy and exercise are the primary treatments, but injections into the muscle can help to break the vicious cycle.
How Soon Will I See an Improvement in Pain?
Some patients will experience immediate relief; however, it usually takes 24 to 72 hours for the effects of the steroid medication, and it may be up to one week before the maximum benefits are achieved. Trigger injections target the pain caused by muscular problems.
Acupuncture is a treatment that uses very thin steel needles inserted into the skin to stimulate specific points in the body. The goal is to relieve a health condition or symptom, such as pain.
Medical acupuncture is used to denote the practice of acupuncture performed by a licensed physician.
How Does It Work?
Traditional Chinese medicine explains that health is a result of a harmonious balance of the complementary extremes of “Yin” and “Yang” of the life force known as “Qi,” pronounced “Chi.” Illness is the consequence of an imbalance of forces.
Qi is said to flow through meridians, or pathways, in the human body. These meridians and energy flows are accessible through 350 acupuncture points in the body.
Inserting needles into these points with the appropriate combinations will bring the energy flow back into proper balance. Some experts believe that acupuncture points are places where nerves, muscles, and connective tissues can be stimulated. The stimulation increases blood flow while simultaneously triggering the activity of the body’s natural painkillers, like endorphins.
Acupuncture has been known to help:
Most patients feel minimal pain as the needles are inserted; some feel no pain. Once the needles are in place, there should be no pain felt. Usually, needles are inserted from ¼ to 1 inch in depth. Even if you are healthy, you can benefit from acupuncture! Acupuncture has traditionally been used as preventive medicine and for health maintenance. Get in touch for details.
