There are many different ways to lose weight, including both non-invasive and surgical options.

Anyone who is concerned about their weight may want to make an appointment with Dr. Golshan, who is a weight loss specialist. Specialists can help people who are obese and severely obese lose weight, but they can also help people who are a healthy weight make sure they don’t put on any pounds.
Like all medical appointments and treatments, weight loss appointments with a doctor are kept in strict confidence. By law, a doctor can’t share any information about a visit, including the mere fact that a patient visited, without the patient’s permission.
Dr. Golshan will frequently ask for permission to share details about a patient’s appointment with other healthcare providers and the patient’s insurance company. Sharing information with other providers lets doctors provide a higher level of care, and giving information to an insurer makes the billing process easier. Whether anyone else is informed of a visit is up to the patient.
Whether a weight loss appointment is covered by a patient’s health insurance will depend on the terms and coverages of the patient’s insurance policy. Patients should contact their insurer for more information about their particular policy.
