Why Weight is a doctors office. When you walk in doesn't look anything like you think it would. First of all, it shares part of a graphic arts building. If someone didn't tell me how to exactly find the place I would have passed it over and over. There is a small sign on a metal door on the side of the building with Why Weight on it. Once you go in the office is smaller than small. The receiptionist who is also the nurse in buried behind her desk. There are 2 or 3 chairs in the waiting room and a little area where crafts and used clothing (?) are sold. I thought this was the strangest thing I ever seen when I went there for my first visit.

The office is only open Mon. Wed and Fri. Your first visit must be with the doctor. He will spend a good hour with you to go over your personal plan, BMI, goals, and explain the program to you.

Just so you know the program is a prescription that you take to help decrease your appetite. They will send your visits and meds through your insurance every 6 visits but it is up to you to pay them cash or check every visit. Even if you have a prescription plan, you cannot use it here. They monitor your progress weekly (or bi-weekly depending on your progress) and give you only enough pills for until your next appointment.

I've only seen the doctor the first visit and one other time. The nurse pretty much runs the whole office. She is nurse, doc, receptionist and office manager. She is extremely sweet and is loved by all who go there. Basically after your first visit you go in to get weighed, both your blood pressure and pulse are taken, you need to keep a log of your eating to go over and you talk about your loss/gain. Most folks get a B-12 shot, however you can opt out of that.

Pricing depends on how much meds you need. It can add up fast, especially if your insurance doesn't pay.

I rate the office a 2 star since it's small, cluttered and could use a big makeover. I give the nurse a 5 star because she is there to help and guide you. You don't feel uncomfortable with her, and she has seen it all.

The reality is, this office is here to help you lose weight through meds. That's it. You go, get weighed, talk and leave with more meds. I've been to a few other offices like that around the Chicagoland area. They all run and look the same. So don't expect fancy. However if you are desperate to lose and your mind is set the program will work. After 4-1/2 months I've lost about 48 pounds.
