What to Expect During Your First Visit

We all know that carrying extra weight often comes with emotional baggage, which can include depression, low self-esteem, social isolation and more. This is among the many reasons many want to start a weight loss regimen. The first step is often the hardest, sometimes walking through the door looking for help is very scary.

We, at Elevation Medical Weight Loss, know that sometimes you just need a place to go where you can find non-judgemental, empathetic people who want to see you lose excess weight as much as you want to lose it.  Congratulations! You have found us and we are here to help you on your way to your goals!

To make getting started as convenient as possible, we offer both appointment and walk-in hours. If you are a walk-in patient, please expect to wait. Hopefully we can fit you in without delay, but we always prioritize our appointments first so please understand if we have to ask you to wait. *Shots and weigh-ins NEVER have to make an appointment.*

Our prescribers are usually not here every day.  We have several offices between which they have to travel.  The ONLY time you can get a refill on your medications is when a prescriber is present in the office.  There are NO exceptions.  Shots and weigh-ins are every day, and any time we are open.

Let us walk you through your first visit so you will know just what to expect.

Paperwork 🙁 Everyone’s favorite! Yes, but it’s not too much. Most of it is just consent forms. Two pages, front and back.

Photo ID – We need a photo ID on just your first visit. We will make a copy of it for your chart.

After all of the paperwork is done, you will be asked to go into the room and the first thing we do is weigh you (to get that part over with), after that is done we will ask you if you would like any injections. We offer B12, Fat Burner, Energy (with Anti-Inflammatory), B-Complex shots. These are weekly injections. You can choose to get them as you come or buy them by the package. We will take a waist measurement also. We also may take a blood pressure and heart rate. It’s very easy and only takes a minute.

When that is done you will be sent to the prescriber. Our prescriber will go over all of the plans with you and you and she will decide what is best for you according to what you want to lose and all the information that you give her. She will tell you exactly how to take your medications or to use your injections, whatever you choose. You will leave with paperwork and all of the necessary things you will need to start your weight loss program.

Once all of your decisions have been made you will come out to the reception area. Any program you choose, you will leave with. Payment will be required when you leave.

We accept CREDIT/DEBIT CARD, CASH, CARE CREDIT
*We do NOT accept Checks

Now you will be on your way to start your new adventure and we will be there for you every step of the way! We encourage you to weigh in once a week. We understand some of our patients live very far away and are unable to do that. We still would like to keep in touch with your progress and so we ask our patients who are not local to email us with their progress.

There you have it. Now you know what to expect when you come in for the first time. Now don’t be a stranger!

 

Happy Memorial Day!

Privacy Matters

This week we have another article of “housekeeping” so please bear with us. We want to take this time to address how we handle the privacy of our patients so as to better protect your sensitive medical information and so that you know what to do if you have questions or concerns regarding your information.

2018-05-06.jpg

MaiLan and Remy take their privacy very seriously.

As it stands, we are bound by HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) which puts limits in place not only on how we store and handle your information but also whom may have access to said information, but we also have our own policies in place to help provide more peace of mind to our patients.

As many of you know, when we receive a new patient we request a copy of their photo ID in order to ensure that the patient is who they say they are, we then place a copy of this ID in our patient files so that we are always able to confirm identification on follow up visits. In addition to this, we regularly search and provide updates to statewide databases in order to make sure that 1) there is no unknown medical history that could create a risk for our patients, and 2) no one is using our patients’ information to unlawfully obtain and abuse medications.

Lastly, we are not permitted, nor would we want to, discuss our patients with ANYONE outside of our medical staff and the patient themselves, not even to other physicians. If a patient and/or their primary physician (PCP) need us to communicate with a third party, we require that the patient signs a “release form” specifically indicating the scope of such communication. In fact, we will not even confirm that an individual is a patient of ours without such documentation, this is to protect your privacy. Signing such a release does not indicate anything other than your willingness to allow our prescribers to communicate with the person you identify, typically your primary physician, and does not constitute the admission that you are a patient of ours or that you received any medications from our office.

hipaa-patient-privacy

We apologize for the dry nature of this weeks article, however questions have been asked about our policies and we want to express just how fundamentally important it is to us that our patients are protected and receive the best possible medical care.

DUE TO THE OVERWHELMING RESPONSE TO OUR “BRING A BUDDY” PROGRAM…WE HAVE DECIDED TO EXTEND IT THROUGH JUNE!

We are thrilled that so many of you have decided to take advantage of our “Buddy” program! Our first two winners in our Weirton office were brand new patients~

Just to refresh your memory, below are the rules for the “Bring a Buddy” program!

ONE DAY OR DAY ONE…YOU DECIDE …AND BRING A BUDDY!

diet buddies

January has come and gone and many of us are stuck with ye another yet of New Years Resolutions.  The number one New Year’s resolution is…you guessed it…get in shape and/or lose weight. 69% of us make that resolution every year and those who don’t usually start thinking about summer and joining in around now. How many times have you made that promise to yourself?

We try to be here for our patients, but for most of your success, it is entirely up to you. We also know that it can sometimes be hard to lose weight and that a support system can make a world of difference. This is why we are extending the “Bring a Buddy” plan for you with some exciting incentives.

Here is what you need to do:

-You can be a former of a new patient, it does not matter.
-If you are a former patient, you have to be ready for a refill on your meds.
-Bring a buddy with you, you both must get a prescription for meds, HCG, or sermorelin
Both people must physically be present at the time of the appointment.

Here is what you get:

-Each person will get $10.00 off of their medications
-Each person will get a complimentary B-12 injection
-Both of your names will get entered into a drawing at the end of the month to win a free weight scale (like ours in the office) and a credit toward a month of medications and shots.*

*There will be 1 winner at each office each month.  Drawings will take place on the last day each month from January 2018, through June 2018.  The winners’ first names only will be posted on the website and Facebook page.  All offices will be included in this incentive program. No cash or cash equivalent will be substituted for the end of month awards. If you do not want the shots, no cash equivalent will be given.  i.e. You don’t use it, you lose it.

One day or day one?  WE will decide…This is your DAY ONE!  Make it count…with your buddy!       

Congrats to our February winners: Paige at our Weirton office and Wenda at our Green Tree office!
