The Weight Loss Industry has offered many "over-the-counter" products that may contain only trace amounts of a prescription drug, but promise the full prescription strength effects of making weight loss easier, quicker, cheaper, more reliable, or less painful. However, the reality that a vast majority of these products do not work is evidenced by the increasing obesity epidemic.
Dr. CAREing offers three medically supervised weight loss programs that combines:
Prescription Medications that actually work to control appetite;
Life Style Changes (under the direction of a dietician); and
Physical Activity Programs (under the direction of a health trainer).

Dr. CAREing offers medically supervised weight loss programs that help you "Gain Health" every day. The program starts with a full medical work-up to determine if the patient is actually healthy enough to diet. Durring this process many people have been found to have other medical issue, that when identified and controlled caused the patient to lose a significant amount of weight without even dieting.
The prescription drug phentermine is a weightloss medication that has been around for over 50 years. Each Phentermine weightloss program is individualized for you and each program offers guidance and support. Typically patients lose 4-6 pounds the first week and up to 15 pounds the first month! Call today to get started!
If you've tried dieting to lose weight before, you already know that fad diets just don't work. The fact is, you need to change the way you think about food and exercise to establish a healthy lifestyle, and nobody understands that more than we do. Dr. CAREing uses prescription drugs like phentermine as a crutch to get weightloss started. After three weeks in the program patients will know how to eat better, and how exercise speeds up the process of weightloss.

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) Plans Start at $800
The HCG RESET diet utilizes injections of hormone called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (“HCG”) with a Very Low Calorie Diet (“VLCD”) to achieve substantial weight loss of abnormal-fat. The original HCG VLCD protocol was a direct result of the research completed by a gifted endocrinologist named Dr. Albert T. W. Simeons. Dr. Simeons was introduced to a curious endocrine disorder that caused extreme obesity and delayed puberty in young teen-aged boys. This disorder was attributed to the pituitary gland and Dr. Simeons discovered that when Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (“HCG”) was administered in very low doses in combination with eating a very low calorie diet, an extreme weight loss event occurred.
During a typical weight loss diet, both fat and muscle are lost, but with the HCG diet, only fat is lost. More specifically, when HCG is taken in connection with a very low calorie diet, only abnormal fat is lost. What is ABNORMAL FAT?
According to Dr. Simeons, there are three types of fat:
(1) Structural Fat Tissue – is found encompassing your internal organs, cushioning the bottom of feet, etc;
(2) Normal Fat Tissue - is used for energy when the dietary calorie intake from food is not available;
(3) Abnormal Fat Tissue - is the unsightly fat that is unattractive adipose tissue that never seems to go away regardless of how much diet and exercise is used.
In 1954 Dr. Simeons published his manuscript: “Pounds & Inches a New Approach to Obesity”. This manuscript explains the complex nature of obesity, but points out 3 mains causes:
• Genetic disposition (e.g. Parents, Family Tree)
• Glandular disorders (e.g. Pituitary problems)
• Culture (e.g. McDonald’s Super Size Meals)
Dr. Simeons postulated that the resulting imbalance in one or more of the 3 main causes allows adipose tissue to collect in the body. The HCG Protocol allows balance to be “reset” without the loss of muscle mass. Our “reset” bodies then burn excess consumed fat naturally and more efficiently. It is for these reasons that the HCG Protocol has been deemed "The Weight Loss Miracle Cure".

Dr. CAREing's dietitians are experts in food and nutrition ("dietetics"). They advise our patients on what to eat in order to lead a healthy lifestyle or achieve a specific health-related goal.
The Dr. CAREing Registered Dietitians (RD or RDN) are dietitians who meet academic and professional requirements, including earning at least a bachelor's degree, and fulfilling a specially-designed, accredited nutrition curriculum, passing a registration exam, and completing a supervised program of practice at a health care facility, foodservice organization or community agency. After learning about patients' health history, favorite foods, eating and exercise habits, an RD will help individuals set goals and prioritize.
Follow-up visits often focus on maintenance and monitoring progress.
The majority of RDs work in the treatment and prevention of disease (administering medical nutrition therapy, as part of one of our Heath-Gain/weightloss programs), right in the clinic.
