There is more to weight loss than dieting Learn More

Medical Weight Loss in Lutherville-Timonium

A Better Way to Lose Weight

Hi, I’m Dr. Thy Nguyen, medical director and owner of FirstChoice Family Medicine. I have been practicing in Maryland for more than 10 years, specializing in weight management.

My interest in medical weight loss comes from my belief that being overweight is similar to having abnormal blood pressure or blood sugar. It is a medical condition that needs to be addressed before it causes other medical problems. 

There are many factors that contribute to weight management problems, including genetics, life stressors, sleep deprivation, hormone imbalances, and even medications you may be taking. Being overweight does not just happen from being lazy or not trying hard enough to lose weight. There is so much more to weight loss.

Your Medically Supervised Weight Loss Plan

With all of this in mind, I have developed a patient-centered approach to treating obesity for the people of Lutherville-Timonium. The FirstChoice Family Medicine medical weight loss plan includes: 

  • One-on-one medical supervision from a physician
  • Consultation with a registered dietitian
  • Guided nutrition programs
  • Weight loss medicines
  • The convenience of both appointments and remote visits

The medical weight loss medications we will use on your plan are safe, FDA-regulated, and proven effective, especially when combined with other approaches like guided nutrition and moderate exercise.

We also offer other weight loss intervention services like body contouring with Contoura and lipotropic injections, which are a combination of multiple B vitamins and amino acids. When you combine these procedures with prescription medication weight loss, you can completely reshape your body and the results can be quite impressive.

An Individualized Approach to Medical Weight Loss

Our program is unique because it uses the concept of concierge medicine, a new model for family practice medicine. Concierge medicine is a members-only model that focuses on the level of quality each patient receives, rather than seeing the maximum number of patients. 

For you, as our valued patient, concierge medicine means you receive individualized care that takes a whole-person approach to your medical weight loss. We look at your medical history, family history and dynamics, social history, daily activities, stressors, sleep patterns, and more.

By making a commitment of 3 months to our program, we know you’ll see the following benefits:

  • Lose weight
  • Feel and be healthier
  • Significantly decrease your risk of other health problems
  • Enjoy a highly effective weight loss program that truly works

Our patients are delighted to discover that this plan comes with no copays, no deductibles, and no surprise medical bills. You gain the benefits of the entire plan for a clear and affordable monthly membership fee.

If you’ve already tried diet and exercise and haven’t been successful, or if you’re frustrated with yo-yo dieting, join our medically supervised weight loss program. Medical weight management helps you break the cycle of weight struggles. Finally, find success with a sustainable plan that dramatically improves how you look and feel.

Join us now!  Because what is life without good health?

All my best,

Dr. Thy Nguyen

What Our Patients Are Saying

My visit with Dr. Nguyen was wonderful. She really took the time to go over all my questions and concerns, and took extra time during my appointment since I was a new patient. She was very clear and thorough, and is very sweet! I would definitely recommend her.
