Weight Loss Costs

Ideal Physician Weight Loss is a comprehensive physician-supervised weight loss program. That’s why our customized weight loss plans include nutritionally complete meal replacement, FDA-approved prescription medications, Lipotropic Injections, Hormone Replacement Therapy, and Bariatric Surgery.

Our three-month, all-inclusive programs are priced quite reasonably when compared to other medical weight loss costs for programs in Phoenix and the surrounding areas. Plans start at only $275 quarterly, which is about $92 per month.  The programs include an active, transition and stabilization phase. Our FREE MAINTENANCE FOR LIFE is included in your plan. This alone is worth thousands of dollars and should help you feel at ease about the weight loss cost.

You will need to set up a no-obligation consultation with the doctor to go over your options. For your time and commitment you will receive a complimentary do-it-yourself diet plan free of charge.
