What an amazing, smart , witty Doctor who knows her stuff ! I was comfortable I was completely informed about all my options and everything was thoroughly explained to me. I couldn't be more thrilled ! If you are looking for a healthy change in your life with some substance and doing the hard work with a dash of believing in yourself then you are in safe welcoming hands here ! The best decision I've made all year and I'm moving more getting active as much as I can of course for a disabled person, but I'm getting active ! My confidence is growing and I'm proud of myself. So if you are ready to do the work needed to lose weight and feel like yourself again, this is the place to start you off in your journey.
