Weight Loss Q&A

What is medical weight loss?

Weight loss at Esperanza Hope Primary Care consists of a medically supervised, reduced-calorie weight loss program that accelerates weight loss in men and women. Practitioners offer you the guidance, education, and medical treatments necessary to get and keep lost weight off long term.

What are the benefits of medical weight loss?

The benefits of choosing medical weight loss at Esperanza Hope Primary Care include the following:

  • Accelerated weight loss
  • A lower risk of chronic diseases
  • Chronic disease management
  • Balanced hormones
  • Reduced appetite
  • Motivational support
  • Healthy lifestyle education
  • Nutritious weight loss menus

Medical weight loss is often more effective than trying to lose weight on your own. Esperanza Hope Primary Care practitioners let you know what to eat, when to eat, and ways you can reduce your appetite to get excess weight off.

What happens during medical weight loss?

During medical weight loss at Esperanza Hope Primary Care, your provider uses the following to help you effectively drop weight:

Medical history review

The first step of medical weight loss is an initial weigh-in and medical history review. Your practitioner asks you questions about past diagnoses, symptoms you may have, your medications, current diet and exercise habits, and your weight management goals.

Physical exam

Your doctor examines you to detect signs of health problems that may hinder weight loss or require treatment. They check your vital signs and evaluate your heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, and more.

Diagnostic testing

Diagnostic tests help your Esperanza Hope Primary Care provider determine if you have a hormone imbalance or nutritional deficiency that negatively affects weight loss or a chronic disease. They might recommend a blood, urine, or imaging test.


Your Esperanza Hope Primary Care weight loss specialist personalizes a weight loss treatment plan just for you. It might include prescription appetite suppressants, dietary supplements, meal and exercise plans, nutritional counseling, hCG or hormone replacement therapy if necessary, and more.

The professionals at Esperanza Hope Primary Care routinely prescribe human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) as part of their weight loss program. Doctors have been safely using hCG to safely enhance and accelerate weight loss for over 60 years. Research suggests that small doses or injections of hCG can produce weight loss of a pound per day, sometimes even more, especially when used in tandem with a low-calorie diet of roughly 500 calories per day. This causes your body to enter a famine state, activating the hCG hormones, which then seek out and eliminate stubborn fat.

If you have diabetes or another chronic disease, your doctor may recommend lifestyle changes or medications to help you better manage your condition.

How much weight can I lose?

The amount of weight you can lose with medical weight loss at Esperanza Hope Primary Care depends on your initial body weight, weight management goals, and how well you follow the program. Expect to drop about two to five pounds weekly, at least initially.
