Tampa, Florida Viet Nam (PressExposure) January 29, 2009 -- Dr. Northrup's expertise lies at the interface of mind, body, and behavior. As part of his weight management for patients, he can offer his patients appetite suppressants (phentermine, phendimetrazine and others) while treating various addictions, in this case food addictions.
For the most part, Tampa weight loss clinics have concentrated on treating patients somewhat as a "whole" instead of offering individualized treatment for their patients. Many times patients who visit Healthy Weight Solutions are doing so after having been to other Tampa weight loss doctors. Their chief complaint upon arrival is being discouraged with their previous attempt at losing weight while under the care of another weight loss doctor or clinic.
Not being seen by the doctor and not having enough time to spend with the doctor is an issue with most people seeking weight loss treatment. Patients pursuing help from a Tampa weight loss physician or clinic are investing their hard earned time and money. They have made a very personal decision to lose the weight and they deserve to be treated with respect and dignity in a relaxed environment. Often times, Tampa weight loss clinics will offer a physician extender and patients make appointments believing they will be seen by a particular doctor, when in fact they are not. In most cases, the patient leaves unsatisfied, and rightfully so. Being hurried through a 20 minute appointment eventually takes its toll, hence, negatively affecting the outcome of the patient's attempt at losing weight.
People tend to accomplish a higher rate of success at losing weight when they are treated in a relaxed atmosphere. Patients are experiencing the difference in Dr. Northrup's Healthy Weight Solutions Tampa clinic first hand. Being seen in a unique ambience--- a cozy "homelike" environment and seeing Dr. Northrup at each visit-- patients can be assured of the receiving the very best care.
It varies for each person, but weight loss treatement often involves counseling, nutritional plans, and sometimes medications. Each patient always receives a thorough examination and monitoring of the patient's general health. Dr. Northrup assists the patient with behavioral modification, which will aid in their weight management. A cozy homelike environment, a friendly staff and a Doctor who truly cares will make patients feel at ease while adhering to the goal they've set and can make an enormous difference in the outcome of that set goal.
