Dr. Charles Goldsmith was a successful OB/GYN. His practice was thriving, but his patients weren't. Each of them was worried about weight loss and attempting their own home-brewed ideas of how to drop those last few pounds. Rather than see his patients rely on misinformation, Dr. Goldsmith, soon to become widely known as Dr. G, created his four-pronged approach to weight loss.
Targeting appetite, metabolism, diet, and habits, Dr. G's physician-supervised plan works to not only change people's consumption, but change their lifestyles. From five-day cleanses that evict toxins from the body to a physician-supervised program including dietary supplements, Dr. G keeps his clients' systems humming like tuneful supersonic jets. His additional cosmetic services, such as teeth whitening and Revitalash, help to ensure clients' exteriors are as pampered as their interiors.
