UPMC Medical Weight Loss Program

University Place Medical Clinic, offers evidence-based weight loss plans supervised by medical providers.

Since the introduction of the new weight loss medications, we have helped hundreds of our patients lose weight and bring their chronic health conditions such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, sleep apnea, etc.…under control.

Your first consultation is with one of our doctors. The following visits may be in-person or remote (telehealth) should you decide to use remote monitoring devices. Weight loss visits are covered by Medicare and commercial insurance and the monitoring devices are issued to patients at no cost.

Currently, Tirzepatide and Semaglutide Weight loss medications such as Ozempic, Wegovy, Rybelsus, Mounjaro, and Zepbound are only available to patients with chronic conditions. For patients who would like to lose weight but do not have health conditions, we order these drugs directly from the manufacturers. We have also partnered with several compounding pharmacies to offer similar weight-loss drugs at a lower price to patients whose insurance may not cover weight-loss medications.
