During and after your weight-loss journey, Dr. Temkin and his team offer ongoing counseling and support. They tailor your program and the number of appointments needed based on what works best for you. You might attend weekly office visits initially, but this may change over time as you get farther into your program. They help you as you lose weight, transition into your weight-maintenance phase, and then help you maintain your results.

In addition to nutritional counseling, Dr. Temkin and his team may prescribe weight loss medications like phentermine, which can help kick-start your weight loss by suppressing your appetite, reducing your cravings, and limiting fat absorption.
