What to Expect
Dr. Lyon offers several different diet programs depending on your goals and lifestyle. She will work with you one on one to tailor your chosen plan to best fit your individual needs, because no two people are just alike!
At your initial visit, she and the staff will spend a good bit of time learning more about you and establishing you as a new patient. They will perform a comprehensive clinical workup including an EKG, physical exam, and a blood panel (specifically tailored for bariatric medicine). You will get an overview of different diet options and consult with Dr. Lyon about what kind of program you would like to follow. According to your regimen, you will most likely leave with supplies to take home – protein supplements, vitamin supplements, and optional prescriptions. The initial office visit could take as much as two hours since there are so many things to do!
Routine office visits are more brief than the initial appointment. At each follow-up visit, we will analyze your body composition and make sure your weight loss is progressing as it should. You and Dr. Lyon will meet at every visit to discuss any problems or questions you may have about your plan, to make any changes to your plan or medications as you need, and to teach you different aspects of health and nutrition in order to maintain your weight loss for the long-term.
Once you are established as a patient here, you are welcome to make appointments at any time. Some people may want to lose some weight and take a break to maintain that loss before starting up again. There is no need to go through the initial first visit again once you have begun at WaistLines.
