Dr. Julia Melamed, M.D., who holds specialized certification in medically assisted weight loss, oversees the many noninvasive body-contouring and skin-lifting services performed at Doctor for Diet and ensures that clients leave feeling their best. Her career working with weight-loss clients began in 1998, after she earned double board certification in internal medicine and medical bariatrics. Julia's medical ambitions then bore the fruits of a certification course in anti-aging and a talent for spotting errors on emergency-room TV dramas. Along with her team, which includes a physician assistant, a nutritionist, a therapist, a lipidologist, and an endermologie technician, Dr. Julia treats a range of dietary cases with emerging therapies, emotional support, diet changes, and bioidentical hormone supplementation.

Dr. Jon A. Kotis’s career has taken him down the hallways of many hospitals and universities. After graduating from Midwestern University School of Medicine and completing a general surgery residency at St. John’s University Hospital, he became vice president of the medical staff at Lincoln Park Hospital. Since then, Dr. Kotis has loaded walls, mantles, and refrigerators with titles and honors, most notably a board certification from the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery. His work has been recognized in various press outlets, including the television show The Doctors, which featured his pain-relieving knuckle transplant procedure.
Today, Dr. Kotis shares his aesthetic expertise at The Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery. He and his staff fine-tune faces with less intensive procedures, such as Botox injections and microdermabrasion, and dramatically transform bodies with procedures including liposuction and rhinoplasty.
The team of doctors at Lifetime Health and Wellness Clinic helps clients maintain and heal their bodies with a variety of nonsurgical procedures, slimming Lipo-Light treatments to chiropractic adjustments. During Lipo-Light treatments, lipolysis breaks down stored fat cells, releasing fat into the blood stream. Clients later assist in flushing fat from the body with exercise, which can result in inch loss.
In addition to body slimming services, health experts perform traditional chiropractic adjustments to ease chronic pain. Another option is ultrasound therapy, which eases joint and muscle pain with high-energy sound waves, as well as natural pain-relieving injections. If neither of those treatments are right for the job, electrical impulses can be sent into certain parts of the body to block pain signals.
The clinic also tends to overall wellness with blood tests, internal medicine care, and weight-loss programs that teach clients how to eat healthy and extract all the carbs from bread.
