INNOVATIVE WEIGHT MANAGEMENT
Innovative Primary Care now offers Wegovy, an FDA approved weight loss drug that has helped countless people achieve a healthy weight. Our physician-led program incorporates the four core elements of weight management: behavior, nutrition, physical activity and pharmacology. Let’s take this journey together.
About Our Medical Weight Loss Program
Innovative Weight Management is a physician-led program to educate and guide you to lose weight safely, and keep it off long term. Obesity is a chronic health condition, and it should be treated as such. Our science-based 12-month program consists of initial consultation, regular check-ins, ongoing monitoring of your progress and achieved goals. All four core elements of weight management will be addressed: behavior, nutrition, physical activity and pharmacology.
Initial consultation with a weight loss doctor
During your first intake appointment, we will spend 30 minutes discussing your current health, your weight loss goals, and how you have tried to lose weight previously. We will also review your current weight, BMI and metabolic profile, if you have not had a recent check-up.
Personalized weight loss program
Medical weight loss means tailoring a program to your body, for your health. We offer patients clinical support, education and monitoring, so they can manage their weight successfully, just as they manage other aspects of their health. Together, we’ll address all four core elements of weight loss and weight management: behavior, nutrition, physical activity, pharmacology.
Regular visits with our medical weight loss team in Chicago
We will meet weekly during the first month of the program to discuss your progress and any challenges you are facing. After the first month, we will meet monthly moving forward.
At monthly check-ins with your weight loss doctor in Chicago, we will review how you are progressing with your nutrition and exercise goals. We will also check your vitals, track weight loss to date and discuss whether or not you are experiencing challenges. Some check-ins may be able to be done virtually through our telemedicine portal.
Prescription for weight loss medication
FDA approved medications, like Wegovy, may be helpful in weight loss. Medications we may recommend include the following:
Innovative Primary Care also has non-pharmacological herbal supplements that can aid in weight loss, such as Adipromin. This herbal dietary supplement prevents fat cells from maturing and growing.
Complimentary consult at medical grade spa
Patients will enjoy a complimentary consultation at Innovative MedSpa midway partway through their weight loss journey. This optional appointment will offer you a look at medical grade spa services that can enhance your image and celebrate your hard work.

Weight Management FAQs
Do you prescribe weight loss medication to every patient?
No, but weight loss mediation is often prescribed. Prescription medication can often boost the efforts that a patient is making to lose weight. Ultimately, it will take a combination of diet, exercise and behavioral changes to see results. Medication however can amplify those benefits and help you reach your goals.
How long will I have to take weight loss medication?
GS1 medication is typically used for at least six months, and often longer depending on the patient. Our weight loss team will work with you for the duration of your journey.
How is your medical weight loss program different?
Our program is physician led. Your doctor may have recommended that you lose weight before, but have they ever helped you achieve that goal? We will! Our weight loss program is a one-year program that touches on all four key elements of weight loss: nutrition, physical activity, behavior and pharmacology. This combination, coupled with expert guidance and regular check-ins with your physician leads to success.
Are weight loss services covered by insurance?
Innovative Primary Care accepts most major insurance plans for weight loss visits. Prescription medications, such as Wegovy, may vary in cost based on your insurance provider.
