Healthcare Services and Programs

When you start your weight-loss journey with OhioHealth Weight Management, we'll be with you every step of the way, helping you achieve success.

Call us at (614) 566-2700 to set up an appointment and begin your journey to a healthy new life.

Your First Appointments 

During your initial, intake appointments, we'll gather important information to ensure a safe weight loss journey for you. You will meet with:

  • A clinician for blood work, EKG and BOD POD body fat measurement
  • A physician for a health history and physical exam
  • A psychologist to discuss the emotional challenges that come with making  this big change
  • A dietitian to review your typical daily meals and eating habits; and to develop your weight loss diet plan
  • An exercise physiologist to discuss an exercise plan

We'll work closely with you to determine which diet plan ‒ either the Low Calorie Diet (LCD) or the Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) ‒ fits your lifestyle, health condition and needs.

How We Monitor Your Health and Weight Loss 

Once you start your journey, you will have weekly weigh-ins and blood pressure checks. You may also have EKG monitoring and repeat blood work on a schedule determined by your diet plan. Your health status and weight-loss progress will be reviewed during your physician appointment.

Throughout your journey, the opportunity is available to continue to meet one-on-one with our dietitian, psychologist and exercise physiologist after the initial intake appointments.

Weekly Classes Shape Your New, Healthy Lifestyle 

In order to achieve long-term success with significant weight loss, you will make changes that incorporate healthy choices into your daily life. That's why our medical weight-loss program includes classes about diet, stress management, exercise and other topics - so we can help you make this important transition and apply what you learn to your life.

Our classes offer not just information, however. They also are a place to receive compassion, encouragement and support.

After Your Success: Our Weight Maintenance Program 

Once you've reached your goal weight, we recommend you join our  weight maintenance program. It includes weight monitoring, classes and continued counseling from our dietitians, psychologists and exercise physiologists. We focus on the lifestyle habits that have been shown to keep weight off.

We know how hard it is to lose weight. We also know keeping it off takes sustained healthy habits with diet and exercise – and sometimes that's just as hard, if not harder.

We're here to help keep you on track and living your new, healthy lifestyle with a positive attitude.
