"I have had a great experience with Dr. Alana Ryan and her nurse. Dr. Ryan has actually listened to my concerns and I can tell that she truly cares about my entire well-being."- S.L. / Google / Jul 12, 2022
"All I can say is, if you are looking for a doctor that takes your concerns seriously, treats you with the highest level of kindness, who is adaptive and thorough, go see Dr. Blake Phipps and his nurse Tina. I have never before in my life experienced the high level of care that I have received from them. Not only was I taken seriously, my concerns were addressed right away, I was seen immediately, and I felt comfortable being treated. I cannot begin to express my gratitude to Dr. Phipps and his team."- J.“. / Google / Apr 15, 2022

"They have a wonderful staff. And they listen to their patients questions and they answer their questions. And they are prompt when it comes to scheduling for appointments either there or to specialists for tests or labs."- G.F. / Google / Feb 26, 2022
"I've always had wonderful experiences with the nurses and providers, they always make me feel safe and welcome. The front desk staff has been dismissive, and has forced some fairly embarrassing interactions - like having me state my health concerns in front of other patients, being unwilling to work with me to explain payment information when I was contacting my insurance, etc. I was late once, and instead of telling me yes or no as to whether the provider would still see me they made it seem like it was a huge deal and seemed very exasperated and borderline rude. I'd rather get a no than be treated like that to be honest. I get that COVID is hard and everyone is stressed but I shouldn't be leaving the front desk getting choked up from stress and embarrassment in most of my visits. I guess I didn't really think it was a big deal and sort of a universal experience until I started working at a hospital and have seen very positive and nonjudgemental interactions between patients and staff there, even when the news wasn't great. The good news is that you can do most of your check-in virtually. Again, the providers have been nothing but kind so it's not enough to make me look for healthcare elsewhere, but I am disappointed."- J.M. / Google / Feb 19, 2022
How Weight Loss Medication Management Works
You'll have a consultation at our office in Lawrence, KS where we will learn about your goals and health history. This will also allow your physician to get an idea of any roadblocks that have gotten in the way of reaching your goal weight. All of these factors will be taken into account when creating a customized treatment plan that fits your needs. In general, prescription weight loss drugs are best suited for individuals who are overweight (with a BMI of 30 or higher) and have not been able to lose weight through diet and exercise alone. Most weight loss medications work by curbing your appetite or helping you to feel more full. It's important to realize that weight loss medication is not a fix-all, but it can help you lose weight when used in conjunction with a personalized plan that involves exercise and healthy eating.
