The most recent statistics show that 65% of Americans are overweight, and 35% of the population fit the criteria for obesity (defined by Body Mass Index of greater than 30). This epidemic of the overweight and the obese has medical, psychological, social and financial consequences. The health consequences of weight problems can be devastating.
Obesity leads to an increased risk of heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, stroke, arthritis and malignancies, such as breast, pancreatic, colon and stomach cancer. Being overweight is also associated with low self-esteem, lack of confidence and depressive symptoms. Illnesses related to weight problems can cause loss of time at work and affect job performance. Studies have demonstrated that overweight people are subject to workplace discrimination when considered for promotions.
As medical professionals, we all have patients in our practices whose medical problems could be dramatically improved by weight loss. We routinely recommend weight loss for improved health. You may have told patients to “eat less and exercise more.” Perhaps you give your patients written dietary plans and nutritional guidelines to review. Some physicians provide nutrition counseling through an in-house dietitian or counselor. Other doctors refer patients to an outside nutritionist or dietitian. Unfortunately, these services are rarely reimbursed by insurance companies.
We, as physicians, are often left without many resources to help our patients make meaningful lifestyle changes. Patients become frustrated and look elsewhere for help.
Americans are spending an estimated 60 billion dollars per year on weight loss products and services. What is this money being spent on?
• Prepackaged food programs such as Nutrisystems and Jenny Craig
• Supplements purchased on the internet, in stores such as GNC and at other “health food stores”
• Home workout equipment
• Medical weight loss programs utilizing hormone injections and severely calorie restricted diets
As a physician, you are well-positioned to help your own patients lose weight safely and effectively. All of the elements are in place to become actively involved in helping your patients lose weight.
Serotonin-Plus was founded by Robert Posner, M.D. in 2002. Dr. Posner has been practicing internal medicine at his Burke, VA office for more than 20 years. Dr. Posner patented the first oral delivery system of natural serotonin in 2000. Some of his internal medicine patients began taking the supplement for mood enhancement. Many of them reported decreased carbohydrate cravings and weight loss.
In 2002, Dr. Posner decided to develop a weight loss protocol using his supplement with lifestyle modification. Eight years later, 10,000 people have safely lost weight on the Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Program™. The average weight loss is 35 pounds in 12 weeks. During the program, patients eat real food and learn lifestyle changes that are sustainable long-term. To date, there has not been a single hospitalization, serious adverse event or lawsuit related to the program.
The Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Program™ is structured as a 12 week program. The patients have an initial visit with a physical, EKG, labs are ordered, prescriptions given and the dietary plan is reviewed in detail. The patients have weekly visits at which weight and vital signs are checked and dietary counseling is given.
Many of our patients also take a prescription appetite suppressant. This prescription is written as a 7 day supply. We have found that this is the most responsible way to prescribe weight loss medications and it is one more way to encourage patients to come to the weekly visits. Counseling and support and weekly visits are a key aspect to encouraging our patients’ successful lifestyle changes.
We can help you market to your existing patients and ensure that your entire investment is returned within the first two weeks. We focus on working with physicians who have a true passion for preventative medicine and wellness. We have worked with physician practices in various specialties. Bringing the Serotonin-Plus program to your office can be accomplished with no financial risk to you.
Bringing the proven, safe and effective Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Program™ into your practice will help your patients become healthier and happier. When patients’ friends, co-workers and family members see how great they look and feel, your business will grow through word-of-mouth referrals. The Serotonin-Plus program is truly complimentary to any medical practice. As a physician, it is so rewarding to see patients achieving weight loss goals and changing their lives for the better. We look forward to bringing the Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Program™ to your practice!

BTA stat Test
The BTA stat Test is an in vitro immunoassay intended for the qualitative detection of bladder tumor antigen in urine of persons diagnosed with bladder cancer. This test is indicated for use as an aid in the management of bladder cancer patients in conjunction with cytology.
The BTA stat® test is a point of care technology for the early detection of recurrent bladder cancer. This method uses monoclonal antibodies to detect the presence of bladder tumor associated antigen in urine. It is a single-step, rapid immunochromatographic assay for bladder tumor-associated antigen in voided urine. The specificity of the BTA stat® test was 93 - 95% in patients with non-genitourinary diseases and cancers and healthy individuals tested as part of a multi-center study. The test has a sensitivity that is considerably higher than voided urine cytology, enabling detection of recurrent early stage and grade cancers that cytology often misses. Requiring three drops of urine, the result is delivered in only five minutes. The appearance of a line in the patient window indicates a positive result. The BTA stat® test requires one voided urine sample with no sample preparation. The BTA stat® test is CLIA waived and also available for prescription home use.
