Frequently Asked Questions
What is CoreLife?
We are the local, preventive care specialist that focuses exclusively on weight reduction and lifestyle modification. We have created a new category within healthcare that previously did not exist. Most patients come to us in the form of a medical referral, but we are also a community resource for those simply looking for a professional, compassionate, and comprehensive approach to their weight.
How is CoreLife different?
CoreLife is an innovative preventive healthcare company that focuses exclusively on weight reduction and lifestyle modification. It is a healthcare company that combines and coordinates medical, nutrition, exercise, and behavior professionals all under the same roof. This provides the community with a local resource for weight loss and lifestyle modification. Also, this comprehensive model provides the most optimal chance for success and sustainability.
How do I know the best program for me?
Weight loss is a complex problem that requires a variety of treatment options. No single treatment will work for all people. CoreLife has a proprietary and innovative intake and evaluation process that allows us to first determine the specific factors of weight gain and, second, to provide specific solutions to your needs. We ensure that these solutions are safe, sustainable and conform to your lifestyle.
How do I know which program to choose?
There are a multitude of paths and combinations that we can develop. Our proprietary intake process helps to provide recommendations and solutions. These are shared in the free consultation so that you are fully aware of the details, expectations, and costs.
What if I have never exercised before?
We have a wide range of programs and solutions; it does not matter if you are completely new or have extensive experience. We always individualize these programs to meet the goals and needs of each patient. An on-site fitness facility provides you with the opportunity to begin to exercise in a comfortable and private space.
Other programs I have tried have been unable to keep the weight off; how is your program different?
How can a weight loss program offer a solution of a product or service without first understanding your unique health profile? For this reason, most programs fail. Quick, easy, one-dimensional solutions don’t work. CoreLife takes a different approach and works with you to understand your unique health profile and then offer a program in response. All aspects of this program are directly managed by the professional staff to insure the highest rate of success, safety, and sustainability.
Do you accept health insurance?
Yes. CoreLife accepts most health insurance as well as HSA.
What about the cost?
CoreLife prides itself on its affordability. Your program cost will depend on your specific weight loss goals, health needs and lifestyle requirements. Everyone is different. We will always be open and upfront about costs – nothing is hidden and there are no contracts to sign. We intentionally set our prices low so weight loss can be an accessible, achievable goal for everyone. Feel free to contact us to determine if insurance may cover a portion of your visits.
What kind of payment do you take? Do you have payment plans?
We accept cash, checks and major credit cards (except amex) at all of our offices. Payment is due in full at the time of the visit. Feel free to contact us to determine if insurance may cover a portion of your visits.
I have some medical issues, can I be treated?
CoreLife works in direct partnership with primary care, surgeons, and specialists to coordinate care and insure safety. Generally, our programs are very safe for most people. We have many patients with controlled high blood pressure, diabetes and other conditions. Please contact our offices regarding your concerns.
Does the program incorporate any exercise?
Our weight loss program introduces a moderate amount of exercise that significantly improves overall health, well-being and quality of life. Our members can also take advantage of our 24/7 private in-house fitness studio, group classes, personal training, and fitness challenges.
Do you treat minors?
This is determined on a case by case basis and is a medical decision by our physician. We often work with families that include children. Focusing on health as a family leads to the best possible outcomes!
Can I do this program with my Primary Care Physician?
Your Primary Care Physician is an excellent resource to manage your overall health. However, a Primary Care Physician does not have the time, unique qualified staff, resources or facility to manage your weight loss and the necessary coordination of care. Our program includes individual counseling, educational tools and techniques, in-house fitness studio with training and the medical expertise needed to help you reach your weight loss and wellness goals for a lifetime.
