Medical Weight Loss Telehealth offers proven and professional support combined with the comfort and convenience of a simple phone call.
This year, the Covid-19 pandemic took us all by surprise as businesses of all kinds, including medical offices, were closed down to slow the spread. As part of our commitment to helping our patients overcome any obstacle to healthy living, Olivera Health + Wellness rose to the challenge and developed a telehealth model that would allow many of our returning patients to receive the care they needed with a simple phone call. In the process, we discovered that our Medical Weight Loss Telehealth program helps our patients work around more than just quarantine restrictions – and we determined that our telehealth program should continue as part of our regular practice.
At Olivera Health + Wellness, we have devoted our efforts over the past 40 years to helping our patients find the right solutions to their individual challenges. One of the biggest challenges many of our patients face is making space for self-care in a hectic schedule. Many people recognize that they need help and support in order to get healthy and stay healthy, but simply cannot find the space to get the support they need. Roadblocks to getting that support include difficulty aligning work schedules with appointment times, as well as the time and effort involved in getting to appointments.
As businesses reopen and regular working life resumes, we find many of our patients still rely on Medical Weight Loss Telehealth in order to continue to receive the care they need, and we are committed to filling that need. If you find yourself struggling to align your schedule with your care needs, read on to discover how Medical Weight Loss Telehealth can support you.
Medical Weight Loss Telehealth is Medical Weight Loss Care
When you come to Olivera Health + Wellness for Medical Weight Loss support, we assure you that the care you receive is quality professional care, whether you come into the office in person or take advantage of our telehealth option. Our medically-proven program combines the use of Phentermine with individual counseling on lifestyle, nutrition, diet and exercise. Our goal is for you to achieve long-term, sustainable weight loss.
The availability of telehealth as an option is our recognition that challenges arise and schedules can be hectic. We want to ensure that our patients can receive the care they need regardless of whatever challenges they face. Returning patients can reclaim their schedule, their health, and their free time by conducting their follow-up appointments over the phone.

Medical Weight Loss Telehealth is Convenient
Our goal is to make Medical Weight Loss care accessible to those who have a complicated or challenging lifestyle. When you schedule your Medical Weight Loss Telehealth appointment, there is no commute necessary, no parking to worry about, and the appointment can be conducted wherever you happen to be. If you have access to your phone, you have access to quality professional care. Our dedicated telehealth provider will call you at your scheduled time, and conduct your examination quickly and professionally. Appointments can take as little as 15 minutes. During even the most crowded and hectic day, that kind of small time commitment can yield tremendous results in keeping you supported as you create a healthy lifestyle that works for you.
Medical Weight Loss Telehealth is for Return* Patients
It is critical for us to see patients in person for their first two appointments in order to conduct diagnostic tests. It is impossible to conduct a blood pressure test over the phone! However, once you have a stable blood pressure history, with current labs on file and an in-person visit within the last 12 months, your options can include telehealth. Follow-up care for medically-qualified patients centers on consultation, education, and counseling, none of which requires hands-on care. Each Medical Weight Loss Telehealth appointment is conducted over the phone and includes:
- Telephone consultation
- Education and counseling
- B12 injection**
- Access to our meal plans
- Includes 30-day supply of Phentermine prescription with direct pharmacy pickup or mail order to your home
*Return patients must be medically-qualified – have stable blood pressure history, current labs on file, and an office visit within the last 12 months.
**Complimentary within 30 days of telehealth appointment, in-office only.
