What Questions will You Ask Me?

At the first appointment At The Gurnee Weight Loss Center, we will need a complete medical history. You will be asked about several things including: Current medications, current and past medical conditions, any previous surgeries you might of had, previous weight loss attempts, allergies you may have, smoking habits, drinking habits, eating habits, exercise habits, etc.

Will You Need to do a Physical Exam?

Yes. At The Gurnee Weight Loss Center, we require a full exam. We need to be absolutely sure of your physical condition as it relates to medical weight loss…something which may not have been the focus for your primary care physcian.

Will You Order Lab Tests?

Most Likely, but not always. Dr. Tack may order medical tests which are appropriate for weight-related medical conditions. After asking in-depth questions and carefully examining you, Dr. Tack may not need blood tests to know what medical weight loss program will be best for you.

Will I get a Medical Weight Loss Program Immediately?

Most patients will be given a general diet, a request to keep a food and lifestyle journal, and a lab test order. On the followup visit, the results of the lab test will be used to determine the best medical weight loss plan, which will be discussed in detail on the followup visit.

Will Medications be Prescribed?

This depends on the individual. Some patients are prescribed medicines..and some patients are not. The use of certain vitamins involved with fat metabolism may also be used as part of our medical weight loss program. Your physical examination and blood test results will reveal much of the information Dr. Tack will need in considering the possibility of prescription medication as a supplement to your weight loss solution.

Do your Medical Weight Loss Programs Work?

Yes. Many of the patients at The Gurnee Weight Loss Center have tried “Fad” Diets that specialize in rapid weight loss at the sacrifice of proper nutrition and crucial health factors. In the beginning, the results of these “Fad” Diets may seem successful…But this is dangerous to your health and often short lived.

You will be changing your lifestyle for the long-term, exchanging bad eating habits for better ones while improving your will power to continue forward. As time goes by, you will look and feel healthier.
