The Physician Supervised, FDA Approved, Weight Loss Program
With Atlanta Medical Institute’s Physician Supervised Weight Loss Program, your health and well-being are more than just a number on a scale. At our clinic, your health and weight is more completely assessed and your progress tracked in more ways that just how many pounds you may lose. Our professional team is here to assist you to make sensible lifelong changes to help keep the weight off for good. There are no group sessions and each client is assessed and given an individually tailored program to suit their needs. We will discuss your concerns and offer motivation in your weekly educational consultations. As there are no lock-in contracts and you pay as you go, your individual program has the flexibility to be changed if and when needed.
Our clinic does not promote only one method or program of weight loss. A carpenter does not work with just one hammer, but rather through the appropriate use of a number of tools. Our clinic takes this approach to weight management. We do no presume that one weight loss method will be suitable for everyone. We offer a range of options including dietary meal replacements, detoxification, dietary guidance, medication support, and just as important, psychological support if it is needed. Through comprehensive assessment and discussion with our clients we aim to provide a more personalized approach to medical weight loss.
Being a MEDICAL weight loss center gives us the ability to monitor high risk clients who may suffer from heart disease, high cholesterol, diabetes etc. All of our comprehensive programs are medically supervised and based on bariatric medicine, the science of weight loss.

How Do I Begin My Weight Loss Program?
Our medical concierge will contact you within 48 hours to confirm your appointment and answer any questions you may have. If you wish to ask a question before coming in for a visit, please contact us and we will be happy to provide you with any information you need.
During your initial visit, you will complete a questionnaire which asks about current and past health and living habits. Next, you will meet with one of our highly-trained weight loss doctors to review your health history, perform testing, (which includes a physical) and consults with you about your health and well-being goals.
If it is likely that you could benefit from treatment, you will undergo saliva, urine, and/or blood sampling. This testing will tell if your blood chemistry is accelerating the process of weight gain and if there are other factors about which our doctors need to be aware. We will suggest an action plan and your treatment will begin immediately!
To ensure your treatment is producing the desired results, your doctor will schedule regular follow-up visits with you. Keep in mind that everyone is different and no one treatment option, dose of medicine, or dietary plan fits all. The correct amount of medications are determined based on laboratory results, individual goals, severity of symptoms, age, gender, and body size. Your customized treatment is completely supervised by our doctors to ensure that everything is done properly, safely, and successfully.
What about Dietary Supplements?
Failing physical and mental health is not what we want in our 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond. Real health, long life, feeling and looking great is what we want for ourselves and our families. Since it is increasingly more difficult to get everything we need out of the food we eat, AMI will recommend some important nutraceuticals and other supplements your body is low on or missing that contribute to weight loss.
What Is the Estimated Cost of Medical Weight Loss?
AMI is focused on improving the patient’s life by taking control of it. The cost is determined by how much weight you want to lose, how quickly you want to safely lose it, the type of service you prefer, and the type/amount of medications and supplements prescribed. Typically, this cost about the same as you pay for insurance. The benefits of a longer life plus the savings from a lifetime of better health make this a reasonable form of health care for most people.
During your initial visit, we will determine which parts of the basic program would be most beneficial for you, therefore determining the exact amount of your fees. We have a broad range of fee options to accommodate your personal budget and main objectives.
Treatment at AMI is dependent on lab tests done. AMI doesn’t accept insurance, although the lab testing done in conjunction with treatment is usually covered by most insurance. We will help you with any paperwork necessary for you to provide this to your insurance company. The clinic will provide patients with all the information needed specific to each visit.

“Many patients enter our office on eight or more meds. The vast majority leave on three of fewer. We help reverse diabetes and hypertension, improve renal functions, prevent the need for knee replacements, improve fertility, and help cancer survivors stay in remission. Some patients no longer need their CPAP machines, oxygen, canes, or walkers. They look and feel great. Their self-esteem improves. They get noticed by employers and potential love interests. It is so beautiful to see. How can I not love what I do?” – Dr. Jeff Semel, DC
Because you are being monitored by a doctor, you can safely lose 2 to 10 pounds per week. Every phase is medically monitored and you make the decision on how quickly you want to lose the weight. We promise you that losing weight can be done comfortably with minimal hunger, conveniently with portion-controlled meals, and affordably. That is the AMI Guarantee!
Sarah’s Personal Weight Loss Story:
“I started my life at a fairly normal weight. I was never what you would call skinny but I was always healthy and about average. I have mixed genes in regards to weight with my mom’s side being very thin and my dad’s side having trouble with their weight.”
Courage does not always roar… sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day, saying, I will try again tomorrow.
