COMMP-For Health Care Professionals
Thank you for your interest in UT Physicians COMMP
Obesity is a chronic, progressive, relapsing, multifactorial, neurobehavioral disease, contributing to over 200 medical conditions including type 2 diabetes, coronary artery disease, and osteoarthritis. Studies have shown improved cardiometabolic markers and overall outcomes with as little as five percent total body weight loss. At COMMP, we utilize a comprehensive, patient-centered, individualized treatment approach.
- Patients are seen by obesity medicine specialists as well as registered dietitians at regular intervals. Our physicians are diplomates of the American Board of Obesity Medicine.
- Patient assessments/treatments may include lab work, body composition analysis, resting metabolic rate measurement, medication review, intensive lifestyle intervention, and anti-obesity medication prescriptions.
- After your patient’s first visit, we will send you a detailed letter regarding their plan of care, including body composition analysis and goals.
- We will work closely with you in coordinating care of comorbidities, such as adjusting diabetes and anti-hypertensive medications.
We welcome referrals from you, your institution or practice, and insurance plans. At this time, we do not accept Medicaid.
- Providers with UT Physicians and UTHealth, please submit a referral through Allscripts, or call our office directly and our staff will schedule an appointment with the patient.
- For providers outside of UT Physicians and UTHealth, please contact our office at 713-486-1330.
- Please note that there is a single required educational class and $50 fee prior to the first physician visit. After that time, visits will be billed to insurance accordingly.
