What are some three simple steps to add weight loss to your practice?
1. Look at your calendar.
We need to make some room to see weight loss patients.
You’re going to look at a typical 20-25 minute initial consultation, and then 20-minute follow-up visits every 1-2 weeks.
2. Identify and target who qualifies for your weight loss program.
Look at your warm market. Look at your active patients.
Anyone that is overweight and is experiencing pain, low back pain, type two diabetes, high blood pressure, and digestive distress, or they’re just not sleeping well at night — those are great people to target.
Do an email campaign to your non-active patients and see who you can help from there.
3. Ask for referrals, and do a workshop.
Ask people, “Who you know that could use our help to live a healthier and better life by losing 5, 10, maybe even over 20 pounds to get their life back to a point of health and happiness?”
