General Questions

What kind of medical insurance do you take?

We don’t accept medical insurance because we offer affordable medical care. Check out this page on our fees. Additionally, some of our services (laser treatments, hCG Weight Loss Program) are not typically covered by insurers. Payment can be made with cash or major credit cards.

Do I need to make an appointment?

We prefer you make an appointment but we are flexible. Call us to find out if we can fit you in. The easiest time to get a same day appointment is between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

What time are you open?

We are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday — Friday.

Can I call and speak to Dr. Miranda directly?

Dr. Miranda LOVES talking to patients. But he also likes to give the patients he is seeing his undivided attention and, as such, is unable to take phone calls. But you can call us to schedule an appointment or ask a member of our team who will relay your message to the doctor. He will return your call as soon as possible.

Laser Treatment Questions

Is laser treatment painful?

The Candela Laser Hair Removal treatments we offer use a patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™), which prepares the skin for treatment by spraying the upper layer with a cooling burst of cryogen in adjustable durations—milliseconds before the laser pulse. DCD helps ensure that the treatments are as comfortable as they are effective. We also apply a cream anesthetic to areas near the bones that can be more sensitive to pain.

How much does laser treatment cost?

Each session is generally priced according to the size of the area being treated. Small areas, such as the ears, are priced at $25 / session. Large areas, such as the back (male) is $300 / session.

Do I need several sessions to remove hair?

Treatment times may vary depending on your specific needs. Hair growth is reduced after each treatment and the number of treatments required will be based on your hair color and type, body area and skin tone. Usually it takes 3 to 8 treatments, once per month.

Do I need to prepare for a laser treatment session?

Yes, there are quite a few things to consider. Please review this list carefully before fixing an appointment.

hCG Questions

Is an hCG Weight Loss program for me?

Schedule a FREE appointment with the doctor to find out.

How fast can I lose weight on an hCG Diet?

We have successfully treated thousands of patients with concrete results in 40 days, the length of the program.

How many pounds can I expect to lose in 40 days?

This is where YOU decide. If you can faithfully follow the program, you can expect excellent results. For example, if you are a man, expect to lose around 45 pounds. If you are a woman, expect to lose around 35 pounds. It also depends on how much you need to lose in the first place. If you only need to lose 20 pounds, these numbers don’t apply. In this case, you simply start the diet and when you reach your goal, you stop it.

Are there any side effects?

Normally, there are none. Some people, in rare instances, experience mild headaches but this may or may not be related to the treatment. Tylenol or Advil can easily remedy this symptom.

Eating such a small amount, will I be tired?

Usually people feel energetic during the treatment even though they are only ingesting about 500 calories a day. Because we need 1,500 to 2000 calories a day to survive, you may wonder where the remaining calories come from. The beauty of it is that the hCG mobilizes your fat stores which it puts in your blood’s circulation for you to burn. This way your own fat is used as an energy source, hence the weight loss! All this said, some people may experience tiredness during the program, but this is quite rare.

Is the hCG Weight Loss program safe?

Only a consultation with a doctor will allow you to determine whether or not the hCG Diet is for you.

How much does it cost?

The first visit for a new patient is $350 for a 40 day program where you can lose up to 40 pounds. Price of medicine is not included (around $80 depending on your pharmacy). For those who need to lose more than 40 pounds, we discount your additional visits, charging only $250 per visit. Each visit, like the first one, is for a 40 day program. Please note that you must wait 6 weeks before starting another 40 day cycle. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you need help figuring out your weight loss budget and schedule.
