Dr. Robert Skversky has been a doctor for more than 30 years, and a bariatric physician for the last 20?which means, in slightly less technical terms, that he currently specializes in treating obesity. He's quite good at it, too. He's appeared on The Today Show, Good Morning America, and The Dr. Oz Show, discussing his philosophy on long-term weight loss and maintenance.
At his office, Weight No More, he puts this talk into practice, crafting customized medical weight-loss plans for his patients. The plans eschew quick fixes, instead focusing on long-term regimens including combination drug therapy, exercise, and low-carb eating. This long-term focus aligns neatly with Dr. Skversky's core belief that obesity, like diabetes, is a chronic medical condition, and needs to be treated as one.
People have lots of different goals for their appearance. Some want to lose weight. Others worry about wrinkles or visible veins. Dr. Roland M. Fuertez, who is certified by the American Board of Family Medicine and in Geriatrics, works with all of them. Under his supervision, technicians can recommend weight-loss supplements and injections or remove wrinkles with Botox and other products.
Along a hiking trail, it is not unusual to find a cairn, which means "path" in Gaelic. These stacks of stones, designed to help mark the trail, also serve as the inspiration for Kairin Clinic, a medical practice created to guide patients to better health. Two sisters, Dr. Aimee Warren and Rebecca Warren, FNP, set out to create the kind of practice they'd choose for themselves, combining traditional medical care with the relaxing experience of visiting a spa, yoga class, or scented-candle aisle. Family and aesthetic medical care top the list of services, though nutritional counseling, weight management, women's fitness, yoga, and guided meditation classes are also offered. Patients waiting for their appointments can sip herbal tea in a relaxing, tranquil space.
