About the Weight Management Clinic

Appointments

A referral from the primary care provider (PCP) is needed to schedule an appointment. Initial screening is done in the PCP's office with regards to co-morbidities and readiness to change. When the PCP identifies a possible clinic patient, the family receives information about the clinic from their PCP. Once the family decides to commit to the program, the PCP provides:

  • Completed weight management referral form.
  • Copy of Fasting Labs: (CMP, CBC, Trig, Total Chol, LDL, HDL, Insulin, HbA1c, Vit D 25, TSH, Free T4, ALT, AST)
  • Completed New Patient Survey (< 11 year old Caregiver must complete, if the patient is > 12 years of age the new Patient must complete)

Please have your child's PCP fax a completed weight management referral form and the additional documentation to (501)-978-6465. For questions about scheduling an appointment please call 501-364-4000.
