What is medically-assisted weight loss?

The providers at Horizons Health & Wellness offer medically-assisted weight loss programs in a clinical environment to help you achieve your weight loss goals. Your medical history is reviewed to identify underlying medical issues that may be interfering with your ability to lose weight and keep it off for the long term.

As part of your program, you work with a physician and other health professionals to determine your nutritional requirements and dietary needs. You also receive counseling on how to make behavioral and lifestyle changes to help you reach a healthy weight.

How will you address factors that influence weight loss?

You’ll receive a customized weight loss program based on your specific needs. Part of your program may involve:

  • Balancing hormones
  • Adjusting your metabolism
  • Using weight loss medications
  • Improving sleep habits
  • Treating chronic medical conditions
  • Supplementing with vitamins, minerals, or other nutraceuticals

Your weight loss program is medically-supervised and includes three phases. Sessions are available for individuals, couples, or groups.

What is the three-phase weight loss program?

Horizons Health & Wellness uses proven methods which rely on laboratory assessments that reflect your metabolism and hormone levels. Your provider guides you through the customized program and teaches you how to maintain a healthy weight for life.

The phases of your program include:

Phase 1: You receive educational tools to master your nutritional, behavioral, and health needs.

Phase 2: If you desire further weight loss following Phase 1 of the program, Phase 2 offers additional guidance to troubleshoot weight loss obstacles.

Phase 3: The final phase focuses on maintaining your achieved weight loss indefinitely and identifying underlying issues causing weight gain.

What are informational weight loss sessions?

The professionals at Horizons Health & Wellness also offer free group information sessions to help you determine if the program is right for you. The group informational sessions are open to the public, and men and women of all ages are welcome to participate, including teens. Contact the office to reserve a spot in one of the sessions for yourself or a family member.

If you desire a one-on-one information session, these can be scheduled with a $25 deposit. One-on-one sessions are 30-minute consultations with our weight loss coach, and can provide valuable information for people who are considering starting the weight loss program, but who perhaps have more complex needs than can be addressed in a group session. If you ultimately choose to join our program, the $25 will be applied to the cost of the program.


Medical Weight Loss Program Details

Are you ready to PERMANENTLY lose weight without surgery, counting calories, counting points or starving yourself? We know this probably sounds too good to be true, but our program is based on the Petteruti Method, with 20 years of success behind it. This is not your typical weight loss program; the Petteruti Method relies on the results of your particular metabolism, hormone and lab assessments, in conjunction with the latest evidence for medical interventions, to help you reach your healthiest weight. We guide you through the weight loss process and teach you how to MAINTAIN it long term.

Have you ever wondered if your hormones or prescription medications are causing you to gain weight? Or if you need medication to boost your metabolism? Or if a natural supplement could help you lose weight? Have you successfully lost weight in the past, only to gain it all back and more?

Dr. Angela Aslami and Rebecca Souza, NP will customize the program to your specific needs. They will determine if you need hormone balancing, weight loss medications, adjustments to your metabolism, vitamins, medical foods, nutraceuticals, sleep studies, and/or medications for chronic medical conditions. You will meet on a regular basis with our providers throughout your weight loss journey- THESE MEDICAL VISITS ARE COVERED BY INSURANCE.

In addition to the medical supervision described above, our weight loss program has 3 phases, and can be completed in either individual, couples or group sessions. These sessions are conducted by our weight loss coach, who has over 6 years of experience as a personal trainer, lifestyle educator, and fitness instructor. THESE SESSIONS ARE NOT COVERED BY INSURANCE. PAYMENT PLANS CAN BE ARRANGED AND WE HAVE 0% FINANCING AVAILABLE FOR UP TO 18 MONTHS IF NEEDED THROUGH OUR PARTNER CARE CREDIT.


Program Structure and Pricing

Phase 1 (6 months total)              Price:  Individuals $1500               Couples $1250                   Group $1000                                                     

Schedule: Once/week for the 1st 2 months, then every other week for months 3-6 (30 minute sessions for individuals and couples, 1 hour for groups)

Phase 1 is only necessary once, to provide you with the necessary education and tools to master your nutritional, behavioral and health needs.

Phase 2 (4 months total)              Price:  Individuals $1000               Couples $850                     Group $700

Schedule: Every other week for 4 months (30 minute sessions for individuals and couples, 1 hour for groups)

Phase 2 is only necessary after completing phase 1 if more weight loss is needed/desired, and can be repeated as often as necessary to continue weight loss.  This aspect of the program is designed to continue the successful weight loss started in phase 1, to ensure that you don’t gain weight or stop losing weight, and to offer guidance and assistance in troubleshooting your unique obstacles to further weight loss.

Phase 3 (maintenance, 1 year total)              Price: Individuals $800                    Group $500/year 

Schedule: Once/month (30 minute sessions for individuals, 1 hour for groups)

Once you have reached your target weight, Phase 3 can be repeated indefinitely to make sure you don’t regain.  If there is any sign of regaining weight, you can re-visit your provider to determine if medications, hormones, medical foods, nutrition changes, etc. are needed to reverse weight gain.

Optional add-ons in any phase include personal training, exercise education, group fitness classes, yoga, meditation, vitamins, supplements, and medical foods (meal replacements), but these are not required.  However, you will reach your goals faster if you take advantage of some of these options.


We look forward to helping you achieve your weight loss goals to improve your overall health and wellness. Please call us now to reserve your place in one of our information sessions.
