The board-certified physicians at The Center for Medical Weight Loss develop individualized fitness plans focused on nutrition, physical activity, life style, and medication. Patients begin the quest with a one-on-one consultation with a doctor, discussing their overall health and medication history to devise a weight-loss plan and to make sure their kidneys haven't been stolen. This is followed by a body-composition exam, in which the physician breaks down the percentage of muscle, fat, and water comingling in the human subject and records his or her resting metabolism rate and blood pressure. The preliminary visit concludes with a pair of injections to boost the body's B-12 level and fat-burning ability. The nonsurgical program caters to each patient's metabolism and potential hormonal disorders and sends patients on a path to a slimmer self with minimal rope-climbing burns and a comprehensive weight-loss plan based on the exam's results.

Before founding Dr. Park Avenue, Dr. Paul Fondacaro dedicated years of study and practice to understanding general surgery and medicine. He earned his MD at NYU, served as chief resident at SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, and eventually became the attending surgeon at Long Island College Hospital. After taking an interest in the booming aesthetic field, he opened the first location of Dr. Park Avenue, an office that specializes in minimally invasive aesthetic procedures and noninvasive laser services. Business grew rapidly, leading him to hire a staff of certified technicians and eventually expand to a second location.
His diverse treatment menu aims to help clients look and feel stunning. Body-contouring and weight-loss services encourage healthy and svelte figures, and chemical peels, injections, and facials battle signs of aging. The office keeps IPL technology on hand to zap unwanted body hair, erase spider veins, or highlight important details in PowerPoint lectures. Despite the company's speedy growth and array of services, the doctor maintains a high level of contact with patients, even consulting with them before laser hair-removal procedures.
