Physician-Supervised Weight Loss Services

Express Health AZ offers a physician-supervised weight loss clinic designed to help patients lose weight quickly and safely, and keep it off.

Express Health’s encouraging and supportive environment assists patients to reach a healthy weight. This, in turn, can improve underlying medical issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and improve ambulation. We offer weekly Cognitive Behavioral Therapy lectures and monthly follow-up visits to ensure maximum safety and adherence to the diet to improve outcomes.


  1. Stop in for a FREE consultation. Appointments can be scheduled at (928) 208-1327.

  3. Once blood work is completed, call (928) 208-1327 to schedule a Medical Clearance appointment with Dr.Persaud. This appointment will take place at Midwest Internal Medicine 1840 Mesquite Ave STE B, Lake Havasu City.
  4. Be sure to have all paperwork filled out BEFORE you see the doctor and arrive 20 minutes prior to your appointment. Don’t forget your insurance card!
  5. Immediately after the Medical Clearance, stop by Express Nutrition at 2036 McCulloch Blvd., Suite 102, Lake Havasu City, where staff will review your Binder and perform a Body Composition Analysis.

Four Phases to the VLCD “Very Low Calorie Diet” or LCD “Low Calorie Diet”

  1. Screening: Patients are medically screened to see if it is safe for them to participate in our very low calorie diet. The screening process includes a physical examination, review of medical history and laboratory testing.
  2. Reducing (Active Weight Loss): Consuming nutritionally complete products, participants begin to learn and practice weight management skills without the influence of food.
  3. Adapting: While practicing newly learned eating and exercise habits, participants gradually transition back to grocery meals. A new meal plan is determined at a Transition Appointment with Express Health AZ staff.
  4. Maintenance: Participants graduate from our diet after reaching a healthy BMI (~24) and a healthy percent body fat. Staff will continue to provide support for relapse prevention and individualized meal plans.
