At St Jude Medical & Aesthetic Care, the weight loss is a program, not a delivery of medication. Every patient is overseen by a Medical Doctor on our staff.

You will need to have blood work results. If you are able to provide the recent information, it will be evaluated or we can provide the needed instruction for you to go to a designated lab where you can have the blood work completed.

Most insurances will cover these costs when prescribed by our Doctor however in the event youhave no insurance the costs are typically minimal and are the patient's responsibility

Once reviewed a specific plan will be discussed with you and in most instances you will be provided with one month's worth of injects to take home.

You will be given an appointment in 28days to evaluate the program and results. if necessary month #2 will be for you to take home on that visit.

If at anytime throughout the process you have a question or concern, you will be able to communicate with our staff and a doctor if necessary.
