Our Medical Weight Loss Programs
Our success in weight management results from the individual attention we give to our patients. The exact program that we provide for you will depend on your weight loss goals, current lifestyle, existing medical conditions and other factors that will be unique to your situation. With this in mind, the following descriptions will give you an overview of the possible treatment options that we will draw from to create your personal program.
The most effective and complete weight loss program available. OPTIFAST combines the proven effectiveness of a controlled calorie liquid diet, with complete medical monitoring, counseling and education. The result is safe, fast, and effective long-term weight loss.
The OPTITRIM Program combines the best of two worlds; the OPTIFAST supplement and regular food. The program offers the same counseling and education programs as our OPTIFAST program.
For the patient who finds pleasure in the process of cooking and preparing meals, or who would find less-traditional diets unsuitable, we offer personalized, low fat, low calorie programs. You’ll consult with a registered dietitian to develop healthy, well-balanced new eating habits.

The staff at CONCI has had a lot of experience and success using a combination of treatments, VLCDs (very low calorie diets), and drug therapy. The medications available by prescription (if medical criteria are met), are Xenical, Meridia, and phentermine.
Surgical weight loss is usually seen as a last resort option for patients who are extremely overweight, have been unable to lose weight with other methods and have other medical conditions that are compunded by their weight. Our role in surgery is to provide you with the information that you need to decide if this option is right for you. We also provide you with the preoperative and post operative support that you will need.
