Why Must I First Be Admitted to Dr. Marcantel’s Services Before Participating in the HCG Diet Program?
Prospective participants must first be admitted to our services and medically evaluated to determine if this is an appropriate approach to weight loss for them. Dr. Tina Marcantel is a naturopathic doctor in Gilbert, Arizona, who also serves the East Valley cities of Mesa, Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, Apache Junction, Queen Creek, and the greater Phoenix area.
The goal of our practice of medicine (and naturopathic medicine, in general) is to help our patients work toward a lifetime of optimal health. We do that by developing long-term relationships with our patients and working along with them to educate and empower them to take control of their own health and wellness plans. (For more information about this, read about our Next Step program.) We don’t offer “quick fixes” – instead, we are committed to working with you to help you reach your health goals.
The HCG diet plan is a rigorous and challenging weight loss program. Prospective participants must first be admitted to our services and medically evaluated to determine if this is an appropriate approach to weight loss for them. Initial laboratory testing or alternative dietary programs may be suggested or required before a patient can be enrolled in the program.
A patient’s medical laboratory diagnostic tests or medical history may reveal other medical conditions or disorders indicating the need for medical treatment other than, or in addition to, medical weight loss treatment. For example, prospective clients with the following conditions cannot be accepted into the program:
* If you have a history of heart disease and are taking nitrates for it.
* If you have diabetes and take insulin by injection only.
* If you have a history of cancer.
*If you have anemia.
Our first concern is for the safety and well-being of our patients. The HCG diet may be part of your overall health plan, and we want to make sure you approach it safely and successfully as one step on your journey to a lifetime of good health!
