Program changes for 2017

I am looking forward to the year ahead and excited about helping you achieve your weight/health goals. I have rationalized and reorganized the practice in a manner that more consistent with the amount of service I deliver to you. I believe that this best serves the needs of all my patients and expedite their achievement of their desired results. I do strive for complete transparency in pricing, if you have any questions please contact me via email at

Changes effective January 2, 2017 are:

  • All weight loss and testosterone replacement programs will require either a recurring monthly credit card/debit card fee or an upfront payment (length depends on program, refunds for unused portions will be granted).
  • Visits will be in  30 minute blocks..
  • No shows will be charged $50 to a credit card on file.
  • Modest increase in pricing. 
  • Separate fee for prescriptions/treatment/advice outside of weight loss (cholesterol, hypertension, insomnia, testosterone, thyroid, female hormone replacement and other meds)


The biggest change will probably be for those patients who receive hormone replacement management within the context of a weight loss program. These fees are now separated to more accurately reflect the amount of service provided.

I may still make a few changes over the coming days, however, the prices will be "cast in stone" come January 2, 2017.

Please see the Pricing page for more details.

Wishing you the best of health and well-being for 2017.

Phone consults

While phone consults with Dr Edman have always been an option, we now have a more "formal" system for making them. Phone consults have been made an appointment type in the online scheduler

Ideal for reviewing laboratory results and making medicine or lifestyle adjustment, phone consults avoid the necessity of coming into the office. They are also great for just getting to know Dr Edman or if you are not in the San Francisco Bay Area and want a consult on your lab results or a review of your treatment options. Currently, Dr Edman can consult with patients from California, Hawaii, Utah, and Washington. 

Check them out on our Phone Consults page.

Want a review of your laboratory results over the phone? Want to book a phone consult with Dr. Edman?

You can now schedule phone consults with the online scheduler. Thirty, forty-five or sixty minute appointments are available.

These appointments are appropriate for:

  • Existing patients who would like the convenience of a phone consult and don't require controlled substances (phentermine and testosterone are the two most common). 
  • Patients who just wish a review of their lab results and issues and suggestions for treatment (no prescriptions).

Just go to the online scheduler and book your appointment now.
