Diet Doc Compares the Risks and Results of their Medical Weight Loss Treatment Plans to the Newly Approved Maestro Implantable Weight Loss Surgery

Providence, RI (PRWEB) January 22, 2015

The Maestro implantable weight loss device, recently approved by the FDA, has led to major opinion, debate and commentary about the effectiveness of the latest weight loss mechanism. While some think that the Maestro is simply trickery to the brain that will not deliver long term weight loss, others are more optimistic. Because a year-long study revealed that the subjects lost only about 9 percent of their body weight, in comparison to a placebo study where subjects lost a comparable 6 percent, this slight body weight decrease gives pause to other weight loss companies and drug manufacturers who have been striving relentlessly for the approval of weight loss drugs that project much more reliable, inexpensive and positive outcomes.

Many desperate dieters, who are ready to consider resorting to the Maestro implantable weight loss device, are wondering how they will finance this weight loss surgery that can carry a price tag upwards of $ 30,000. Insurance companies have not approved the cost, leaving many would-be patients taking a second look at losing weight the old fashioned way and many others turning to Diet Docs medically supervised weight loss treatments.

Even surgeries that are approved by most insurance companies require that the patient first exhaust all of their options, including following an approved weight loss treatment plan. And because Diet Doc is a doctor-designed and medically supervised weight loss program, the company qualifies as one of the handful of treatment programs that insurance companies feel could lead to patients avoiding often risky, potentially dangerous and extremely costly weight loss surgery.

Diet Doc patients begin their journey with personal online doctor visits, easy to follow meal and snack plans that are customized to be specific to each patients particular needs, access to a team of specially trained weight loss professionals and consistent supervision throughout. Specialized prescription diet products, including hormone diet treatments, proprietary diet pills, appetite suppressants, and powerful fat burners complete the package. All diet products are manufactured in fully licensed, FDA approved, U.S. based pharmacies using the highest standards. Much like the Maestro implantable weight loss device, this natural and safe, yet powerful combination, also tricks the brain somewhat. These potent treatments signal the brain to target and release old, stored fat into the bloodstream where they will be attacked, burned and quickly flushed from the system. Patients find themselves noticing the loss of pounds and inches within days from the hard to reach areas, such as the belly, buttocks, hips, thighs and underarms. This combination not only yields fast weight loss, but helps patients over the initial weight loss hurdles by eliminating hunger, food cravings and fatigue.

Diet Docs scientifically designed, medically supervised weight loss treatment programs have helped thousands of desperate dieters throughout the country and have earned a reputation of trust, reliability and positive weight loss results. Diet Doc encourages those who are considering resorting to potentially dangerous and costly weight loss surgery to call today.
