Frequently Asked Questions

How much does your program cost?
We believe that obesity and related medical conditions should be managed in a health care environment, therefore the physician fees of our weight loss programs are covered by OHIP. There is a fee of 200 dollars that covers the mandatory dietitian comprehensive assessment, body composition analysis, fitness assessment and supplies. Services provided by personal trainer, physiotherapist,  as well as OPTIFAST meal replacement products and  additional sessions with the dietitian are provided for a fee.
How is your program different?
Contrary to other weight loss programs, ABC Weight Management believe that each individual that walks into our clinic is unique. Our goal is to get to the root problem behind your weight issue. There is much more than just diet and exercise ! You do not need to sign a long term contract for our services, however we do want our patients to be realistic with their time frames of their goals and commit to regular visits for at least 6 months. We are health care professionals trained in weight management. Many commercial programs that are out there often do not have the medical experience or education to assist in the complexities of weight management. We do not judge. You have a life story unlike anyone else and ABC is a safe place for you to feel welcome, to learn and to work towards achieving a healthier quality of life.

Do I need a referral from my physician?
You do NOT require a referral for the Comprehensive Nutrition and Fitness Assessment. However, we will require a referral from your family doctor should you join one of our Weight Management Programs. Dr. Soto  addresses existing  medical conditions and adjust or prescribe medications when needed. We want to keep your family doctor informed !.
I am overweight and healthy, do I need to lose weight?
Weight management is not only about losing weight, but about improving quality of life by enhancing your health and reducing the risk of medical complications. Many overweight people are healthy, have healthy eating habits, and perform a good amount of physical activity; therefore, weight gain prevention may be all that is needed. Whatever your health and weight goals, we can help you achieve them.
