Each patient begins their program with a private office visit, at which time patients are offered treatment choices, including the utilization of appetite suppressants along with HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) injections, which facilitate fat loss by aiding in the breaking down of fat cells, thereby reducing inches.
In helping us help you reach your goals, the perfect finish requires a perfect start. If you are taking medications please discuss this with us immediately as you may not be able to take the appetite suppressants and we need to know this right from the start. Accordingly, here are a few prerequisites that apply to all new and returning patients:
- UPON ARRIVAL AT EVERY APPOINTMENT YOU WILL NEED TO SHOW A VALID PHOTO ID OR DRIVERS LICENSE.
- IF YOU ARE TAKING ANY MEDICATION, PLEASE BRING A COMPLETE LIST WITH YOU.
- IF YOU ARE TAKING ANY MEDICATION, PLEASE LET YOUR PROVIDER KNOW THE DETAILS.
- IF YOU HAVE ANY HEALTH ISSUES, PLEASE LET YOUR PROVIDER KNOW THE DETAILS.
- IF YOU ARE PREGNANT OR MAY BE PREGNANT, YOU WILL BE INELIGIBLE FOR THE PROGRAM.
- IF YOU ARE CURRENTLY OR HAVE RECENTLY BEEN BREASTFEEDING, YOU WILL BE INELIGIBLE FOR THE PROGRAM.
Once you have been prequalified to move forward with the Let's Get Thin MD™ Program we kindly ask that you become familiar with the following questions so that when you do come in for your initial office visit you will be prepared to fill out the required patient forms and be on your way to reaching your goals that much quicker.

Now it is time to meet your experienced Provider; a professionally certified staff member hand-picked by Dr. Girouard to work with you in determining the scope of your Let's Get Thin MD™ Program and supervise your treatments all the way through to your success.
After a thorough discussion with your Provider, in which your health and medical history is carefully reviewed and your individual goals are set, you will make an educated decision on which treatments are best suited for you and a customized Let's Get Thin MD™ Program will be outlined and set up for you. Then, depending on your needs that day, the appropriate medications and/or other FDA-approved appetite suppressants will be dispensed to you as prescribed by your Provider.
With your program in place, you will leave the clinic feeling encouraged and excited to pursue your newly set goals. Among these goals will be a clearly defined schedule on when to come back to the clinic and meet again with your Provider to discuss your progress.
As an active participant in the Let's Get Thin™ Program you will not only receive expert medical supervision and a detailed plan from your Provider which you are encouraged to follow once you leave the clinic, but you will always have the comfort of knowing that advice, encouragement and support is only a phone call or return visit away.
