  • Do you take my insurance?
    Our providers work with most insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid. When you provide your insurance information, they can review your policy and verify coverage and availability.
  • What’s the first step?
    The first step is to register online and schedule a consultation with one of our providers.
  • What does the consultation consist of?
    You will meet with one of our providers who will review your medical/health history and explain the treatment in more depth. This consultation will help our providers create a customized care plan. Typical consultations take 30 to 60 minutes. You may be asked to come prepared for blood work if your latest blood work is not up to date.
  • How often will I be taking treatments?
    Everyone is different. During your consultation, our providers will determine your care plan and course of treatment.

Compounded Semaglutide and Tirzepatide, Delivered to Your Door

Semaglutide (active ingredient in Ozempic© and Wegovy©) and tirzepatide (active ingredient in Mounjaro©) are glucagon-like peptides (GLP-1 for short) which are naturally occurring hormone amino acids.

GLP-1 hormones are known to significantly decrease appetite by delaying gastric emptying and reducing intestinal motility. These peptides main function is to lower blood sugar levels by enhancing naturally one’s insulin secretion and have therefore been developed as diabetic treatments. But their health benefits reach well beyond diabetes as research has shown beneficial impacts of GLP-1 in the heart, muscles, bones, liver, lungs and kidneys. (Impressively, they also have a role in brain and central nervous system health, promoting clearing thinking, improved cognition and slowing of neurodegenerative disease, with ongoing research indicating their role in the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease.)

Research has been incredibly positive with the finding that weight loss with the use of GLP-1 ranges from 10-20% of initial body weight and our observations find many patients lose even more.

We don’t cut corners when it comes to the quality of our care. DCE only partners with only compounding pharmacies that offer semaglutide and tirzepatide peptide base, not a salt of semaglutide or tirzepatide.
