Go to your nearby Hendrick Regional Laboratory location in Abilene or Brownwood for lab testing.
Initial Visit and injection
Go to your first in-person appointment at Hendrick Urgent Care for your initial evaluation and injection. Your evaluation will consist of taking vitals, reviewing lab results (if available) and receiving your initial injection. Appointments are required.
Once lab results are received, someone from our team will call you to review. (Results may take a several days to receive.)
You will return weekly on the same day for subsequent injections.
Each visit, you will weigh-in and be evaluated. If you are continuing to lose weight, the clinician will determine if your dose needs to be adjusted.

Semaglutide Medical Weight Loss 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.
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 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.

However, we recommend that all patients having a possible life-threatening emergency call 911.
