At Superior Health Medical, Dr. Akers maintains a comprehensive, individualized approach to weight loss, beginning with an in-depth holistic consultation that makes sure to rule out underlying medical conditions that may be contributing to their weight or make it difficult to lose it. 

Our three key areas of focus are:

  • Weight Loss Medication Management
  • Nutrition Planning For a Healthier Lifestyle
  • Exercise Guidance For Steady Weight Loss

These three aspects of our weight loss management program are designed to tackle weight loss from every angle—through prescription weight loss medication, if indicated, and lifestyle modifications such as a healthy diet and exercise regimen.

These medical weight loss programs are tailored to your individual medical needs and are designed to help you achieve long-term success in your journey toward a healthy body weight.

Weight Loss Medication Management

We understand that each patient is unique, and we work closely with you to determine the most appropriate weight loss medication for your weight loss and weight management. If clinically appropriate and covered by your insurance, we may recommend a weight loss medicine like GLP-1 receptor agonists:

  • Wegovy®
  • Saxenda®
  • Ozempic®
  • Zepbound®
  • Mounjaro® 

GLP-1 receptor agonists are a class of weight loss medications that help with weight loss and blood sugar control. They work by mimicking the action of the natural hormone GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1), which is involved in regulating appetite and insulin secretion. 

By activating the GLP-1 receptors, these weight loss medications can reduce hunger, slow gastric emptying, and stimulate insulin release when needed, ultimately leading to decreased food intake and improved blood sugar levels.

These weight loss medications have been proven to help patients lose weight and reach a healthy body weight and may help you.

Nutrition planning for lifestyle planning

Nutrition Planning For Lifestyle Changes

We create a personalized meal plan tailored to your needs, preferences, and lifestyle. We understand that individuals may have different dietary requirements or restrictions due to personal choices, religious beliefs, or medical conditions. 

We will consider these factors when designing your meal plan, ensuring that it accommodates your unique needs while still being enjoyable and sustainable. 

We aim to make healthy eating accessible and enjoyable for everyone, providing ongoing support and guidance throughout your weight loss journey.

Exercise Guidance For Steady Weight Loss

We will help develop a customized fitness plan that aligns with your goals, fitness level, medical history, and time constraints. We focus on various types of exercises, each with unique benefits for weight loss, muscle building, and overall health.

Some of the exercise categories we may incorporate into your exercise plan include the following:

Also known as cardio exercises, aerobic exercises raise your heart rate and help you burn calories. Aerobic exercises are crucial for weight loss and improving cardiovascular health. Examples include walking, jogging, swimming, and cycling.

Building muscle through strength training, such as lifting weights or using resistance bands, can boost your metabolism, helping you burn more calories even when resting. Stronger muscles also improve your daily functionality and reduce the risk of injury.

Incorporating stretching and balance exercises, like yoga and Pilates, can improve your range of motion, posture, and overall body stability. These exercises can help prevent injuries and support better performance in other physical activities.

HIIT workouts involve alternating between short bursts of intense exercise and low-intensity recovery periods. This training can lead to significant calorie burning and fat loss while preserving muscle mass.

We provide ongoing support, encouragement, and adjustments to your plan as needed to keep you motivated and on track. Our goal is to help you achieve sustainable weight loss while promoting a well-rounded, healthy lifestyle.

What to expect during your weight loss program

What to Expect During Your Weight Loss Program

Our online medical weight loss program is designed to offer the same level of support and guidance as an in-person program. You will have regular virtual consultations with Dr. Akers to monitor the progress of your medical weight loss program, discuss your medical weight loss medications, and adjust your diet or exercise plan as needed. 

Medical weight loss programs continue until you reach your goal weight, with maintenance options available afterward to help you maintain your weight loss success.

Medical weight loss programs that include adopting a healthier lifestyle—such as a healthy diet and exercise program—can also have significant emotional and psychological benefits. Some of these positive weight loss health benefits include:

Achieving weight loss goals can boost self-esteem and self-image, leading to a more positive outlook on life and increased confidence in social situations.

Regular physical activity, such as exercise, can help alleviate stress and anxiety by releasing endorphins, which are natural mood elevators.

Adopting a healthier lifestyle, including proper nutrition and regular exercise, can help regulate neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, which are essential in mood regulation and mental health. It can also improve your physical health, and frequently even conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes or high cholesterol.

Losing weight and improving general health can lead to increased energy levels and enhanced mental clarity, making it easier to focus on daily tasks and enjoy a more productive life.

Medical weight loss programs, particularly when combined with regular exercise, can enhance sleep quality by reducing the risk of sleep apnea and promoting better sleep hygiene. Maintaining a healthy body weight can help you get better sleep!

What Does Superior Health Medical’s Weight Loss Program Cost?

The cost of our weight loss program varies depending on individual needs and insurance coverage. The initial consultation fee is $129, with follow up visits costing $75. 

We will work closely with you and your insurance provider to determine your out-of-pocket expenses, such as co-pays for weight loss medications for our weight loss program, and ensure that your weight loss journey is as affordable and effective as we can help.

Medical Weight Loss Programs FAQs

An ideal candidate for medical weight loss is someone who has struggled to lose weight through traditional methods, such as diet and exercise and is committed to making long-term lifestyle changes. Medical weight loss may also be suitable for those with weight-related health conditions or who require additional support and guidance throughout their weight loss journey.

The length of your weight loss journey will depend on your goals, starting weight, and commitment to the program. Our program is designed to help you reach your goal weight, with the understanding that weight loss is a gradual process.

After you reach your goal weight, Dr. Ackers will help you maintain your weight loss results through medical weight management.

Weight loss can significantly improve many health conditions. By achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, you can reduce your risk of developing these conditions and improve your overall quality of life. Some of the medical issues that benefit from weight loss medication, diet, and exercise include:


Losing weight can help regulate blood sugar levels, reducing the risk of developing type 2 diabetes or improving the management of the condition in those already diagnosed.

High Blood Pressure

Weight loss can lower blood pressure, reducing the strain on your heart and decreasing the risk of heart disease and stroke.

High Cholesterol

Shedding excess weight can help lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels and increase HDL (“good”) cholesterol, promoting a healthier balance and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Sleep Apnea

Weight loss can alleviate sleep apnea symptoms, such as snoring and interrupted breathing during sleep, by reducing the amount of fatty tissue in the throat and improving airway function.


Losing weight can reduce the pressure on weight-bearing joints, such as the knees and hips, alleviating pain and improving mobility for osteoarthritis patients.

Heart Disease

Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight can decrease the risk of heart disease by improving blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and overall heart function.
