How Our Program Works

Prima Medicine offers an integrated approach to diet modification and Weight loss. Our Dietician works hand in hand with your doctor to see what the best course of action will be for you.

Weight loss prescribed by your doctor is covered by some but not all insurances. The good news is that you can use your FSA Card. The out-of-pocket cost is an affordable $98 per session.

Most appointments are 30 minutes in length. Your first session will be a detailed evaluation. Since the typical weight loss success program involves multiple sessions, you can benefit from our multi session discounted prices. Multi-session discounts are available for 8 and 16 sessions.
