Your First Visit To Dr. Beale’s Medical Weight Loss
On your first visit to Dr. Beale’s Medical Weight Loss office, you will be greeted at the front desk and given medical history, social history, and family history forms to complete and a urine specimen cup. Your height, weight, and blood pressure will be measured by the medical assistant. You will be placed in a comfortable examination room where you will put on a warm cloth gown. The medical assistant will draw your blood and take your body measurements.
Lisa Beale will discuss your weight loss goals and your current eating and exercise habits. The medical doctor will review the forms that you have filled out with special emphasis on any medical problems that you may have and any medications and/or supplements that you are taking.
After these tasks are finished, you will be given literature to read before your next visit.
You will not receive medication or an injection on your first visit because we must wait until the next morning to receive your lab results. This is important because we need to make sure your weight loss program is SAFE for your current medical condition.
On your first visit, you should be prepared to be in the office for 60 – 90 minutes.
Fee: $220 (Cash and major credit cards accepted)
** FINANCIAL CHALLENGES **
During this stressful time, many of us can overeat and gain weight. I DO NOT want this to happen.
Please call me and I will work out a payment plan for you.

Your Second Visit To Dr. Beale’s Office
Your second visit to Dr. Beale’s Medical Weight Loss can be as early as the next morning when we receive your lab results. Your visits are now on a walk-in basis and depend on which of our office locations and hours work for your schedule. You may come to any of our locations.
After your weight and blood pressure have been taken, you will be placed in a consultation room where we will discuss your physical examination results, laboratory results, eating plan, medication plan, exercise plan and your goals.
All of your questions will be answered at this time. You will be reminded that you are not expected to have any side effects either from the medication, the diet, or the injection. We will emphasize that you have an after hours / emergency number to call later if you think of another question to ask.
You will receive your weight loss medications which may include appetite suppressants (diet pills) and other oral supplements as needed. You will then get a vitamin B12 / lipotropic fat burner injection and that will end this office visit.
The total time can be from 15 – 25 minutes depending on the complexity of your medical situation and the number of questions you need answered.
Fee: $40 (Cash and major credit cards accepted)
** All medications and B12 / lipotropic fat burner injection included **
Subsequent Weekly Weight Loss Office Visits
Each office visit should be within seven days after the preceding office visit.
After having your weight and blood pressure checked, you will be placed in a consultation room where you will get a vitamin B12 / lipotropic fat burner injection.
You will then consult with either one of the physicians, Lisa Beale or Ms. Leavy. If you are losing weight on pace with no problems, then you will continue the same program for the following week. However, if there are concerns or problems, adjustments in your weight loss program will be made in the diet or medications or both so that you can continue to lose weight on schedule.
As you lose weight, especially if you have over 40 pounds to lose, your body can get used to a diet and the diet would have to be changed so that you can continue to lose weight. The diet that gets rid of the first 20 pounds, may not work for the second 20 pounds. Also, your body can get used to a certain diet pill and it may have to be increased in strength in order to continue to work.

Please NOTE: After the first visit for your physical exam, all subsequent visits are on a walk in basis. This way you do not have to come at an exact time or exact day each week.
