To our valued patients, in light of the spread of COVID-19, we will be taking measures to provide medical services for as long as we can while minimizing exposure risk to you and our staff.

While our medical weight loss offices are closed to the public, we are providing services and answering medical concerns via video, telephone, or electronic communication, as allowed by applicable laws.  We are currently accepting new patients in West Virginia and Pennsylvania by telehealth.

Keep an eye on our main page website for updates regarding our accessibility.

If you or anyone with whom you have had recent contact are showing any signs of sickness, please reach out to us via telephone or email so that we can find a way to assist you while maintaining responsible “social distancing”. We are in this together, and we will continue to do everything we can to help you keep sight of your weight loss goals. Stay Healthy.

DSC_7482 (Large)

We are so happy to announce our March Buddy winners!
Our Green Tree winner is Melissa and North Hills (Wexford) is Tim.
And because we had such a HUGE response in Weirton, we drew two winners, BethMiranda.

We are blown away by how much our incentive program has been utilized. We thank you and want to remind you that we have extended it to JUNE!

To those of you who are new, our Buddy Program is designed for you to diet with a buddy. (It is always better to do it with a friend). If you come in together and both join a plan*, we will give you each $10.00 off and a free B-12 injection and put your name in a drawing for a month of the diet medication and B-12/Fat Burner injections. So grab your buddy and come on over. Make sure you come in when there is a prescriber scheduled, and we will be happy to help get you on your way to a healthier you!

*You can be a current or new patient but must be ready for a new month of meds. You will not be able to substitute any winnings or plans/injections. You must BOTH be seen at the same appointment time slot. NO EXCEPTIONS to these rules.*

Sometimes, Not Sharing is Caring

notsharingiscaring.jpeg

Dear Patients of Elevation Medical Weight Loss,

We need to take some time to address something rather serious. Concerns have been brought to us about some our patients possibly “sharing” their weight loss medications with friends and family. While we are confident that all of our weight loss medications and programs are safe, this is not necessarily true for all people and as such we are concerned for the health of anyone involved.

Before we go on, we want to note that all new patients sign a “Statement of Informed Consent” that states among other things that our prescribers have the discretion to withhold prescribing to anyone suspected of sharing or giving away prescribed medication. We do, however, want to be clear that our top priority is your safety and the safety of those dear to you. Our prescribers have in the past and will undoubtedly turn away seemingly healthy, adult patients due to risk factors that could easily lead to terrible side effects, but have also found alternative ways to successfully work with more high-risk patients. The point is that a prescriber should always be involved when a prescription medication is taken to ensure that the medication is taken both effectively and safely.

notsharingiscaring2.jpeg

If you or someone you know has or is currently sharing your medications with another person, we urge you to please stop doing so and instead bring them to us and let one of our trained medical professionals make sure that everything is done safely. If cost is an issue we have run many special incentives in the past such as our “buddy program” that can help in this regard, and if it is anything feel free to contact us to address them and possibly discuss safer alternatives.

Again, this letter is not intended as a threat or scolding, but rather as a plea. All of us at Elevation Medical Weight Loss make great efforts to protect your privacy and your health, and we ask that you work with us to ensure that we have only a positive impact on our community.

TL;DR No one should share any prescribed medications since there could be serious risks if someone takes a medication that is not meant for them.  

Sincerely,

Coach Drew and Dr. Cooper

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!

in-cen-tive: a thing that motivates or encourages one to do something.

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Here is another low -calorie and low-carb recipe that is great for any day of the week.  The chicken based meal cooks up easily and stores well in the fridge for another delicious meal upon reheating.

DSC_3070
Tray of Ingredients: Lettuce, mushrooms, chicken breast, onions, green onions, water chestnuts.  Sauce mixture of: soy sauce, salt, ginger, garlic, rice wine vinegar, and ginger.

Chicken lettuce wrap: recipe serves 6
*prep time: 20  minutes *cook time, 15 minutes.

Ingredient Calories Carbs
Lettuce, ½ a head 55 calories 11 g
Chicken breast, 1.5 lbs chopped and diced 1123 calories  
Onion, ½ medium 23 calories 5 g
Soy sauce, 4 tbsp 35 calories 3 g
Sugar, 2 tbsp 25 calories 25 g
Water chestnut, 6 oz, diced 160 calories 40 g
Mushrooms, 6 oz diced 44 calories 8 g
Green onions, 1 bundle chopped    
Ginger, 1 tsp finely chopped or ¼ tsp powder    
Salt, ½ tsp    
Rice wine vinegar, 1 tbsp    
Garlic, 2-3 cloves or 1 tsp    
TOTAL 1490 total calories 92 g
DSC_3080
It tastes so good we can’t keep our toddler away 

Instructions:

  1. Mince the chicken breasts into fine pieces, or as an alternative, you can use 90% lean beef or ground turkey or ground chicken.
  2. Use a large non-stick skillet and put on medium heat, no oil required.
  3. Mince the chopped water chestnuts and mushrooms.
  4. Toss in the chopped chicken on the skillet.

    DSC_3095

  5. After 5 minutes, combine the rest of the ingredients: onions, green onions, water chestnuts, soy sauce, salt, ginger, garlic, rice wine vinegar, and ginger.

    DSC_3097

  6. Turn to medium high heat and cook for another 10 minutes or until done.
  7. Lay the lettuce leaves open on a large plate, scoop in the chicken mixture on the lettuce and sprinkle on a bit of green onions.  Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm.

DSC_3101

There is a lot of flexibility with this recipe.  You may omit the water chestnuts to reduce the carb content if you choose.  And it almost does not matter the timing of the added ingredients as you cook.  As long as most of the sauce cooks off, the chicken and chopped water chest nut will absorb the flavor and you will have a flavorful and healthy meal.
