Before starting any of our weight loss programs, clients must complete an initial exam ($69) which includes measurements for height, weight, blood pressure, pulse, Body Mass Index (BMI) & fat percentage along with lab work and resting EKG.
Once the initial exam is complete, you will have an appointment with one of our providers, either Sara Luft, APRN or Mike Luft, DO. She/he will review your health history and the results of the tests performed during the initial exam. At that point, if you are approved for one of our weight loss programs, we will go ahead and get started!
Prescription Weight Loss Medications
Our program is a weight loss regimen based on the use of diet pills. Prescription medicaton has become increasingly popular to individuals who are desperately trying to lose weight, especially when other products on the market have proven unsuccessful. Prescription diet pills suppress the appetite, which is why it's such an effective weight loss aid. Once the appetite is controlled, daily intake of calories will decrease and the body will make use of stored fats as a source of energy. With a proper diet, exercise routine, and prescription medication, you will see positive changes in your physical appearance.
There are many FDA approved appetite suppressants on the market. We will work with you to find the one that is most effective - it could be Phentermine, Belviq, Contrave, or Qsymia.

hCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy. During pregnancy, the substance almost completely controls the womanâ€™s metabolic functions.
hCG Hormone Therapy helps your body burn the â€œabnormal fatâ€ that is stored around the hips, thighs, belly, and upper arms. It will, however, leave the so-called â€œstructural fatâ€ that can be found in the muscles and protects the organs, untouched. This way the excess fat will disappear even faster and the problem areas will be dealt with more efficiently.
hCG injections allow the body to release these abnormal fat reserves, making the stored nutrients available and allowing the patient to burn this excess fat. Targeting abnormal fat will help you to achieve weight loss with comfort and little frustration.
The hormone injection is given once daily and comes in 30 day treatments. If protocol is followed, you can expect to lose up to 1-2 pounds per day. While on this program, you are allowed 500 calories per day of protein, fruits and vegetables.
Maintenance after the diet is imperative for continued success. This program can offer quick weight loss, but more importantly, it offers a new way of thinking about and consuming food. It is a new way of thinking about health.

Benefits of B12 Injections
B12 increases metabolism, the side effect of which can be weight loss. With regular B12 shots and a combination of other weight loss regimens, people have reported to lose weight much faster which they attribute it to the shot.
B12, as we said earlier is a great energy booster. The other option would be to take a supplement, which would take many hours in the digestive process and would lose much value along the way. Speaking of value, with a B12 shot, you retain almost all the B12 - none of it gets lost in the digestive process.
B12 shots are highly recommended mood boosters as well. B12 is essential for a properly functioning central nervous system â€“ we know that dysfunction can lead to depression. If you suffer from mild depression, you can try a B12 shot as a mood booster â€“ some people have reported feeling happily giddy afterwards, but not for long. In a few hours, it settles and you are just happy!
B12 is essential for a properly functioning cardiovascular system. It thins the blood and prevents blood stickiness; blood cells sticking together are what leads to a blood clot which can cause a stroke.
B12 injections can be administered for $20!
Benefits of Lipotropics Injections

- Enhances liver function which helps detoxify the body, increase metabolism, and store glycogen.
- A healthy liver also secretes bile more effectively, which in turn aids in the digestion and breakdown of fats.

- Lipotropic injections can also suppress appetite and lower cholesterol; Lipotropics are known to increase energy levels, which may enhance mood, vitality and overall health.

After years of struggling to lose weight, I had resigned myself to the fact that I was always going to be "big." In November 2010, I went for an annual thyroid test and the doctor told me I had borderline high blood pressure, borderline diabetes and borderline high cholesterol. The only recommendation was bariatric surgery or a lap band. I couldn't believe those were my only options! I had joined a gym, worked out 6 days a week and ate 1,200 calories/day. In 6 months time, I had only lost 8 pounds. I even worked out with the gym's personal trainers. Nothing made a difference. I found Modern Medicine weight loss after searching online for anything that could change the path I was on. I started my journey in December of 2010. As of Ocotober 2011, I had lost 100 pounds and I went from a size 22 to a 10! I am thankful for Dr. Luft and all the staff. My whole existence has changed. I have more confidence, a positive attitude, and I feel anything is possible! Thank you, thank you, thank you Modern Medicine!!
