Specializing in internal medicine gives Dr. Marvin Riske the expertise to treat common ailments such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and allergies, but his true interest lies in winning the battle against obesity. Since obesity heightens the risk for other health problems and affects so many people, Dr. Riske had to take action. He created a medically supervised boot camp at Foothills Primary Care as a way for his patients to shed excess weight and find respite from their other ills. His team of registered nurses and trainers meet with patients weekly, doling out slimming enhancers such as vitamin B12, Chromium, L-Carnitine and corsets made of cabbage leaves.
