“Medically Supervised Primarily Online Medical Treatment of Weight Loss and/or Healthy Weight Maintenance”



Our now long time (in excess of 12 years) use of the Internet as a doctor patient communications tool through our medical treatment website at has proven itself to greatly improve and facilitate doctor patient communications enabling our primarily online approach to medically supervised weight loss and/or healthy weight maintenance has proven to be a great medical treatment amenity. Additionally, our recent reading of currentthe books, "Fat Chance"...(Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease) by William H. Lustig, M.D. as well as the book entitled, "Salt, Sugar, Fat" (How the Food Giants Hooked Us) by Michael Moss has convinced us (along with our twelve year medical treatment experience) that long term therapy with phentermine is very beneficial to a large cohort of the American (and worldwide) public as proposed by Arthur Frank in his 2004 study from the George Washington University Medical School Weight Management Department as reported in OBESITY-A RESEARCH JOURNAL entitled, "Long Term Treatment of Obesity Using Continuing Pharmacotherapy" at: 

in which he states, “Long-term, possibly lifetime, use of medications for the management of obesity may be thought to be similar to the use of pharmacotherapy for other chronic diseases such as hypertension or diabetes." gives great medical credence to our primarily online medical approach.


By Appointment Only

Office Visits by Appointment Only. Call 972-934-3231 to set a usual one time only brief office visit to physically meet with the doctor to comply with severely enforced federal and some state laws to begin our primarily online medically supervised weight loss and/or Healthy Weight Maintenanceprogram in effect thru our website in conjunction with our brick and mortar office since 2002.We are medical pioneers in integrating the use of the Internet through the use of our medical treatment website located at as a doctor patient communications tool for administering our primarily online medically supervised weight loss and/or healthy weight maintenance program since 2002.

During the past 12 years of our operation we have successfully treated hundreds of thousands of patients in need of weight loss and/or healthy weight maintenance primarily through the use of long term treatment of patients with phentermine in a customized dosage for each patient to suppress patient hunger and their drive to overeat in combination with an off label use of fluoxetine as first described by Michael Anchors, M.D., PhD, in his book, "Safer Than Phen-Fen" published in 1994.

Fluoxetine is optional for patient use and is prescribed to inhibit "tolerance" to the hunger suppressing effects of phentermine which enables extreme patient hunger suppression and inhibition of the patient's drive to overeat while enabling the lowest dose of phentermine possible.

Most patients who have used phentermine alone as well as the phentermine and fluoxetine combination prefer the combination medical therapy.

This is consistent with a comparison study of the use of phentermine alone versus phentermine in combination with fluoxetine as performed by the Eli Lilly Company (a drug manufacturer) which demonstrated considerably more patient weight loss with the phentermine-fluoxetine combination as opposed to the use of phentermine alone.

This parallels our own twelve year experience during which we have treated in excess of 100,000 patients successfully with to the best of our knowledge no known adverse patient medical treatment effects.

Additionally, using our online medical treatment website at has proven to be a tremendous patient convenience treatment asset and we believe has proven to be a medical cost saver improving patient treatment efficiency.

We are in the process of recruiting a national physician network of physicians named the Absolutely Thin Independent Medical Associate Physician (or ATIMAP in short) Group who have agreed to implement our proven treatment protocols locally on a national basis.

At present (August 1, 2013) we have ATIMAP Network Physicians in 16 states and in 35 office treatment locations.

Please log into the forms on the homepage of our 12 year old website at to receive a detailed email within seconds describing to potential patients where our ATIMAP Physician Network Group members are located by state and by city and zip code with weekly email and website updates so potential patients interested in our primarily online medically supervised weight loss and/or healthy weight maintenance program can have the most up to date information.

For any potential patient questions or additional information please call 972-934-3231 9-5 M-F CST and my friendly staff will be glad to help you.

This is a great way to assist in your weight loss. I met with Dr Kurup in their new Arlington location (they also have spots in Fort Worth and Southlake too!, in addition to N Dallas. After your initial visit you submit your progress online and your prescriptions are refilled at your pharmacy. Very easy and convenient.

Convenient to not have to go into the office every month. Helped me lose 25 lbs of baby weight in a few months. The B-12 and slimshots are a nice benefit as well.
