A Chat with Just The Doc
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Medically supervised weight loss services are provided in a family doctor’s office for a comprehensive approach: contributing circumstances and conditions to the weight can also be addressed. Use of medicine for weight is limited to people whose BMI’s are 30 or higher.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The Doctor lost 50 pounds in 2008 and has kept it off, so understands the problems weight can cause physically, emotionally, professionally, & socially. Medicine helps, but success comes from systematically transforming both thinking and behavior.
What do you love most about your job?
Helping people succeed! I have now had 14 patients reverse their diabetes with weight loss, and countless others come off meds for other conditions. Even if our health is not yet affected, we FEEL better at a healthy weight.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
As a family doctor, the best feed back I get is from healthy lab results, and getting pts off CPAP, reflux, diabetic, BP, choleterol and pain meds. As a recovering overweight person myself, I know the joy of both feeling good, AND feeling good about myself.
