What is Customized Medical Weight Loss?
At Rejuvenate MD, our weight loss programs are a far cry from the latest fad diet. Every patient begins with a comprehensive medical exam. This includes medical history and testing that includes blood pressure, body fat analysis, blood work, and possibly an EKG. We’ll go through your past dieting history, and your current eating and exercise patterns. We use metabolism and body composition as our true indicators of weight loss progress. We know this is also the key to long-term success.
Once we have your medical background, we’ll design a medical weight-loss program specifically for you. We’ll set your initial calorie goal and will include selected pharmaceutical appetite suppressants to eliminate your cravings. That’s the Active Weight Loss phase, where you’ll lose the most weight.
Every step of the way, we’re there with you providing dietary counseling and consultation. We’ll see you once a week for check-ups, but you can stop by our office any time you want. As we show you what your body is doing, you’ll begin to understand how and why you put on weight…and why it has been so hard to take it off.
You’ll transition from Active Weight loss to Transition, where appetite suppressants usually are removed. Now you’re grasping the tools for long-term success. The final step will be Maintenance, where you can take full control of your weight and your lifestyle.
Why Customized Weight Loss?
As a program participant, you will be under the care and supervision of our Medical Director Dr. Lonny Green. Dr. Green is a member of the Obesity Medicine Association and the American Academy of Anti Aging Medicine. Dr. Green, along with his expert team, will help devise an optimal weight loss plan that includes a thorough health exam and closely-monitored follow-up visits.
Your plan will be based on your unique medical conditions, needs, and goals.
Losing weight doesn’t mean you should be hungry all the time! Success goes up when cravings go down. We can provide the extra help you deserve by prescribing FDA-approved appetite suppressants, as needed.
Achieving long-term weight loss is a lifestyle change, not a quick fix. We combine education, nutrition, and exercise so you can keep the weight off for the long run.
Drop in any day you like! Tell us how you’re doing, review your meal plans, weigh in, obtain a metabolic-booster injection, or just visit! Our door is always open to you.
What Makes Us Different?

We are your weight loss partner for the long run, and we will be there when you need us. Everyone experiences ups and downs, but we will be ready to help whenever you need us.
How It Works
Testing, Education, Support
Health History and Testing
We will perform a comprehensive medical exam, including your personal medical history, and testing which may include an EKG, blood pressure test, body-fat analysis, and blood work. These tests are done to customize the plan for your specific needs, and to ensure that the program is safe and effective.
Consultation and Counseling
We will review your test results, discussing your unique needs and goals. Together, we will design a plan just for you, including dietary counseling and exercise. Prescription medications and/or appetite suppressants may be prescribed as indicated.
Post Follow-Up and Monitoring
Periodically, you will come to the office so that we can assess your progress, check your vitals, and make any necessary adjustments in your program or medications. We encourage you to drop in anytime to update us, do a weigh in, get a lipotropic injection, or just chat. Once you reach your weight loss goal, the frequency of visits will decrease.
Keeping it Off
The goal is to maintain a stable, healthy weight for the long-term. Throughout the process, we will help you train your mind and body, learn about healthy food choices, incorporate exercise into your everyday routine, and develop strategies to stay away from situations that may cause you to make poor choices.
Stages of the Program
Stage 1: Active Weight Loss
In this stage, you will experience the most rapid weight loss as you put into action all the the knowledge you have gained about food groups, eating behaviors, and methods to increase your activity and burn more calories. To help you achieve maximum success, we will provide counseling, motivational tools and messages, appetite suppressants (as needed), nutritional supplements, and lipotropic fat-burning injections.
Stage 2: Transition
You will learn ways to add different foods into your diet and reassess the tools you have used in Stage 1. Some tools will no longer be needed, while others may be added. The goal of this stage is to secure the knowledge and behaviors that will enable you to achieve long-term success.
Stage 3: Maintenance
You will get the resources you need to do self-monitoring, and learn when to take corrective action if you find things are not going in the right direction. Your confidence will increase as you see yourself empowered and in charge.
Candidates for Medical Weight Loss
If you’ve pinballed between every conceivable diet; if you’ve tried the pre-packaged foods from the infomercials, but gained the weight right back when you cooked your own food; if you’re frustrated and wonder if you can even lose weight — you’re a good candidate to come see us at Rejuvenate MD and check out our customized medical weight loss program.
This isn’t surgery. This isn’t prepackaged food you are required to buy. This is a team of medical professionals guiding you through weight loss, transition, and enduring maintenance. This isn’t a diet — it’s medically supervised weight loss, and if you’re ready to finally actually lose the weight for good, you’re a good candidate for our plan.
Benefits of our Weight Loss Program
How does our medical weight loss at Rejuvenate MD differ from diets?
- You’ll be under medical supervision — Our medical director, Dr. Lonny Green, is a member of the Obesity Medicine Association and the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.
- Your optimal weight-loss plan is designed based on your medical history and exam — This isn’t one plan for everyone.
- We tailor our programs uniquely to women and men — Weight loss is not only different by the person, but by the sex, as well.
- You won’t be hungry all the time — We use FDA-approved appetite suppressants and other supplements to aid you during your Active Weight Loss phase.
- A holistic approach — This isn’t about today’s latest fad diet. This is a combination of medically grounded education, nutrition, and exercise delivered with continual supervision (as much as you want).
- You’re not alone — You can drop in and see us any time you want, to review your meal plans, obtain a metabolic-booster injection, or just to vent.

Program For Women
WOMEN ARE DIFFERENT!
Mother, wife, sister, daughter, employee, or business owner—you have many roles to play. Your body is not the same as a man’s, so your plan shouldn’t be the same, either.
We tailor our programs for women to account for their unique needs. The personalized plans involve testing which include blood work, body-fat analysis, health history, and thorough exam.

Program For Men
We are aware of the unique obstacles and difficulties men face when it comes to losing weight, and we can help you devise a successful weight loss program tailored just for you!
Many factors influence weight gain, from dietary habits to lack of exercise. For men in particular, testosterone plays a key role. Dr. Lonny Green, medical director of Rejuvenate MD, will help you formulate a customized plan that will enable you to lose weight safely. After undergoing a comprehensive physical exam and blood work, we will assess your health needs and formulate a personalized weight loss plan with goals that you can achieve.

How Long Is The Weight Loss Program?
How long you remain on our weight loss plan depends on your goals and, to a degree, perseverance. At Rejuvenate MD, we’re not about a quick fix. We’re in this for the long haul with our patients. That’s why once you achieve your goals in the Active Weight Loss phase, we move you to a Transition phase to start you down the road to owning your weight and your health for good.
What Happens After I Get To My Target Weight?
When you’re at your target, you move to the Maintenance phase of the program. Now we give you the resources you need to monitor your own situation and make adjustments as you need. You’ll have the understanding of how your body uses food and what it needs to be healthy and simply maintain your new weight. By this point, the goal is to have changed your routine to a mix of exercise, healthy eating, and a different outlook on food. Of course, we’ll still be here, should you need additional advice or other help.
*Disclaimer: Individual results may vary from patient to patient depending on customized plan, goals, current health and dietary needs.
