Achieve Your Ideal Weight with Personalized Weight Loss Solutions in NYC

Are you looking to achieve a healthier weight and reduce your risk of obesity-related comorbidities? At Family Medicine NYC PC, we offer comprehensive weight loss services to help you on your journey to better health.


  • BMI Assessment:We start by assessing your Body Mass Index (BMI), which is a valuable tool for understanding your weight in relation to your height. This helps us determine the appropriate weight management plan for you.
  • Complete Blood Work:We conduct thorough blood work to assess various health markers. This includes checking for comorbidities associated with obesity such as hypertension (HTN), high cholesterol, pre-diabetes, diabetes, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
  • Semaglutide Injections:As part of our weight loss program, we offer Semaglutide injections, a medication that can assist in your weight management journey.


  • Mechanism of Action:Semaglutide is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs known as GLP-1 receptor agonists. It works by:
  • Appetite Suppression:Semaglutide helps reduce appetite and increase feelings of fullness, leading to reduced food intake.
  • Blood Sugar Control:It regulates blood sugar levels by increasing insulin secretion and decreasing glucagon production.
  • Slows Digestion:Semaglutide slows down the emptying of the stomach, which helps control post-meal glucose levels and appetite.
  • Side Effects of Semaglutide:While Semaglutide can be an effective tool for weight loss, it may also have side effects, including:
  • Nausea:Some people may experience mild to moderate nausea, especially when starting treatment. It often improves over time.
  • Diarrhea:Diarrhea can occur in some individuals but is usually temporary.
  • Hypoglycemia:Semaglutide may cause low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) when combined with other diabetes medications. It’s essential to monitor your blood sugar levels.
  • Gastrointestinal Issues:Other gastrointestinal symptoms like vomiting and abdominal pain can occur but are less common.
