A triple board-certified anesthesiologist, Dr. Footerman draws from more than 20 years of medical experience to steer patients toward healthier lifestyles. Because Dr. Footerman believes that obesity causes many modern health problems, he's concocted comprehensive weight-loss programs that help patients shed pounds while improving their overall well-being. During an initial consultation, a body-composition analysis measures how much of the body's mass is composed of fat, muscle, and fruit roll-up. Bearing in mind the patient's medical history and weight-loss goals, the doctor tailors a customized program based on eating real foods and cultivating healthy habits. As a supplement to lifestyle changes, periodic injections of vitamin B-12 simultaneously increase metabolism and deplete the doctor's reservoir of Scooby Doo band-aids. Patients can shed up to 28 pounds in one month, and weekly weigh-ins monitor their progress.
