How long is the evaluation?

In general, you will meet with Dr. Saks two times for an evaluation. During these visits, you will review your eating, weight, medical, relationship/family, and psychological history, including any prior treatment. Most of this information will be gathered during the visits, but often questionnaires will be employed which you will complete on your own and review for discussion.

What methods are used to help me meet my goals?

Dr. Saks is a specialist in cognitive behavior therapies (CBT), which are types of treatment based firmly upon research findings. These approaches aid people in achieving specific changes or goals. These might include:

- Acting differently. Like making better decisions around food.
- Feeling differently. Such as being less frustrated with having to exercise.
- Thinking differently. For example, learning better problem-solving or responding to self-defeating thoughts.

Cognitive behavior therapists usually focus on your current situation and its solution, rather than the past.  The goal is to focus on your beliefs and coping skills, not on wholesale personality change. CBT is time limited, research based, and focused on specific problems in the here-and-now.

Will I be put on a specific diet?

Typically, you will not be put on a specific diet. Our mission is to help you eat in a generally nutritious way, and to learn skills, thinking patterns, and behaviors to develop and maintain healthy ways of eating and exercising. We are open to various dietary plans, but strongly feel a flexible approach that can be adhered to long term is the only one that works.

What if I desire a specific diet or exercise prescription?

While we focus on the behaviors of eating and exercising, if you would like a specific eating or exercise plan, we have an extensive network of registered dietitians and exercise specialists to help with these specifics while you work with us.

What if I desire medications or have medical complications?

We have a large network of excellent physicians who can help you with these concerns while you work with us.

Do you communicate with my doctor?

Absolutely. We always discuss your progress with your physician and other members of your treatment team.
