What is LCMC Health Urgent Care’s medical weight loss program?

LCMC Health Urgent Care is now offering a safe weight loss aid with semaglutide injections – the active ingredient in Ozempic & Wegovy! Semaglutide promotes weight loss from within, as it helps balance hormones and functions in your body. Our program will allow you to work with our providers not only with the injections, but also with routine consultations on your overall health to help you reach your weight loss goals

Why It Works:

  • Weekly Injections
  • Decreases Appetite & Cravings
  • Stimulates Insulin Secretion
  • Promotes Safe Weight Loss

How it works


Start with your first consultation & injection. Your initial consultation will consist of an evaluation, taking vitals, lab testing, diet and exercise routine review, and establishing weight loss goals. Appointments by phone are required at this time to best serve our patients. 

Lab Results

Once lab results are received, we’ll call you to review. Results may take a few days


You will return weekly on the same day for subsequent injections.

CONSISTENT Evaluations

Each visit, you will be weighed in and evaluated. If you are continuing to lose weight, the clinician will determine if it is time to go up on your dose.


Your labs may be repeated at 3 months if determined necessary by the clinician.


During your weekly check-ins we’ll discuss diet, exercise and nutrition tips.


Your initial visit will consist of a consultation, labs, vitals and your first injection. During your monthly evaluation, the clinician will determine if it is time to go up on your dose. Your dose will determine your weekly pricing.

Semaglutide Medical Weight Loss Program FAQs

  • What is Semaglutide?

    Semaglutide is a safe prescription weight loss aid. Semaglutide was originally created to treat patients with diabetes, however, a secondary application was later found as a medicine used for weight loss, to lower blood sugar levels, and to reduce the risk of major cardiovascular events. Semaglutide works by increasing insulin release, lowering the amount of glucagon released, delaying gastric emptying, and reducing appetite.

  • Is Semaglutide safe?

    Semaglutide is a safe and well-researched substance. It’s already improved the lives of many chronically overweight patients by assisting in consistent and sustainable weight loss.

  • How fast does Semaglutide work?​

    It typically takes about two weeks for semaglutide to start working in the body. While taking semaglutide, some people begin to see results within the first eight weeks, but most begin to see results within 4-12 weeks. Lifestyle changes can impact this timeframe.

  • Does Semaglutide have any side effects?

    Side effects of Semaglutide are common, particularly at higher doses, and may include nausea, vomiting, constipation or diarrhea. Gastrointestinal side effects usually improve with time. Your health care provider will work with you on the appropriate dose for your health and body needs. We’re open 7 days a week, so do not ever hesitate to contact us with questions or concerns! However, we recommend that all patients having a possible life-threatening emergency call 911.

  • When will I receive my injections at LCMC Health Urgent Care?​

    You will return weekly on the same day* of the week for your semaglutide injections. This allows us to provide wellness checks, open a consistent line of communication with you, and help you stay on track with your weight loss goals.​

    *Currently our initial consultations are from 9am-4pm on specific days. During this visit you will choose your reoccurring injection day moving forward (any day of your choice). Inital consultation days are as follows:

    • Chalmette: Tuesdays & Thursdays
    • Uptown: Wednesdays & Fridays
  • Do you take insurance?​

    LCMC Health Urgent Care does not currently accept insurance for Semaglutide injections.​
