Weight Management/Obesity Medicine

"Let's get you looking cool for the summer" 

                          Dr. Abdullah

"And that’s fair because this is new—not just the drug, but the idea of the drug. There’s no API or software to download, but this is nonetheless a technology that will reorder society. I have been the living embodiment of the deadly sin of gluttony, judged as greedy and weak since I was 10 years old—and now the sin is washed away. Baptism by injection."

                 

Paul Ford shares his experience on Wired taking a newly drug that removes hunger!                        

As a Hormone Replacement expert, Dr. Abdullah has advanced knowledge in metabolic and obesity medicine, including the prescription of the hormone-based GLP-1 injectable Ozempic ®.

 

Dr. Abdullah also prescribes all the other injectables within the GLP-1 class such as Wegovy ®, Trulicity ®, and Mounjaro ® to ensure that you are able to get treated in case one of them is in shortage!

 

He also prescribes other obesity and lipotropic medicines such as Phentermine and "Lipo" and believes in practical effective coaching, not just to achieve quick weight loss, but also to ensure long-term weight maintenance. 

We will also address concurrent mental disorders such as treatment-resistant depression and food cravings and assess your candidacy for Ketamine therapy. Ketamine has shown great promise in treating depression and cravings, without the side effects of traditional SSRIs such as Prozac and Lexapro that cause increased appetite and weight gain.

 

Dr. Abdullah loves treating obesity and seeing how patients bloom into a happier healthier version of themselves. We don’t take insurance for Dr. Abdullah’s consultation; the first visit is $300, and subsequent visits are $250. 

 

They cost $900--$1300 monthly (depending on which brand we choose and which one is in stock). We still think it’s worth it, as they are very effective, and can reduce weight by 10-15 pounds per month, which is stupendous! In 3-4 months, you may achieve the same results as a gastric bypass/bariatric surgery, minus the surgical complications, cost, and chronic vitamin and mineral deficiency that ensues with these surgeries.

 

The health benefits of treating obesity are too many to list. Look at it this way: One cannot live their best life if obese! 

 

We believe in body positivity as a valid and much-needed social movement, but obesity is unhealthy and will reduce your life expectancy, and we don’t think that its glamorization is body positive!

 

With appropriate coaching by Dr. Abdullah, you would not have to be on these expensive medications permanently. The idea here is to coach you effectively while you’re on them, so you could maintain your weight when you stop them and save your money for a nice vacation! Doesn't that sound really nice?!

Weight loss is no longer an unattainable dream. Skip the fad diets and surgery. Get a medicine that works and get coaching that's effective. Look cool for the summer!

So what's the process?

Depends on whether you're a guy or a gal! See below!

Step 1: Contact us via text or call to request our women's weight management screen. This is a small set of labs (B12, A1c, TSH, T4) that you can either get done at any LabCorp in the country or at our office, whichever is more convenient for you. We charge you for these labs so you don't have to pay for them a higher price at the lab. These must be done before your initial consultation with Dr. Abdullah. We get the results in 3 business days. No need to fast.
