Medical Weight Loss by Healthogenics' three-step process helps weight-loss-seekers shed bulk and maintain their svelte figures through proper nutrition and supplemental lipotropic injections infused with vitamin B12. First, the professional medical staff conducts thorough medical evaluations, including a full-body-composition analysis and an individual consultation to discuss weight-loss goals. Using this information, as well as dietary needs or restrictions, the physician creates a custom weight-loss plan specific to each slimmer.
The stabilization phase comes next, when the condemned fat has been banished and the doctors discontinue the prescription of appetite suppressants and other pharmaceutical aids. Trained specialists continue to offer weekly support to help dieters stay on course.
Weight-loss maintenance, the program’s end goal, leaves folks feeling healthier, slimmer, and ready to sport horizontal stripes on their wedding days.

Of course, keeping eyesight healthy and strong from the get-go is the staff's number-one priority, and so they offer comprehensive exams that begin with an external inspection of the eyes and surrounding tissue, and end with a tonometry test to identify signs of glaucoma. In between, doctors take note of tracking abilities, visual field, refractive abilities, and colorblindness, and also perform an ophthalmoscopy test, where they inspect the retina to check for any detachment or sudden changes in its mood. A free hearing screening is also included with each patient's first visit, keeping jealous ears from feeling like eyes get all the attention.
