TIRZEPATIDE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Our tirzepatide program starts with a $79 telehealth consult that includes your medical history and any prior weight loss programs. During this call we screen for any contraindication and review how tirzepatide works. Mobile Care Health requires standard labs in the last 6 months.

After the call you can purchase tirzepatide. Your first order includes injection supplies. Your order is compounded just for you, which can take 1-2 weeks. We ship directly to your doorstep, and when your order arrives, we have a video Telehealth call for injection training. 

It may sound to good to be true, but we want to work with you to meet your goals! Other places place you on a standard protocol with regular increases in your dosage. We do not follow a dosing protocol. We check with you every week through a survey and monthly via Telehealth. We want you to know your side effects, how much weight you’ve lost, and your weight loss goals going forward. Then we, both provider and patient, make the right decision about changing your dosage.
