Our clinic is open Monday through Saturday from 9:00am until 4:00pm. Appointments are not necessary. We gladly take walk-in patients all day. We accept cash, debit cards, and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express). The office visit fee is $40.00. We offer a number of prescription appetite suppressants that we can fill in house for your convenience. The price of our medications ranges from $25.00 to $65.00. If you prefer, you may take your prescription with you to a pharmacy of your choice. In addition to our prescription medications, we also offer several injectables. They range from $15.00 to $35.00. If you come in for an injection only, you do not have to pay the $40.00 office fee. If you have a group of 10 or more at your office that would like to try our injections, we can come out and give them on site.
