i was hoping to get a little more out of this visit as far as eating habits. i wanted a initiative on trying to lose a few lbs i gained i just wanted a diet i can follow to get back on track but it wasnt provided the way i expected. being concerned as i am about my weight i thought that he could give me a goal to reach. example lose 20# by a next appt just to get me back on track but didnt work that way. i needed guidance and dont feel i really got what i was hoping for.

This doctor gave me probably the most practical advice I've ever gotten from a physician. I felt so much better when I left his office. I hope that I can put into practice the suggestions that were made for me. I went in feeling defeated but I came out feeling empowered.
