Metabolic Health and Weight Management Patient Testimonials

 

"Dr Rifai, Larissa and Denise make participating in the Metabolic and Weight Management Program at HFWB easy and comfortable.  It has helped my wife and me not only get healthy but understand how to change our lifestyle and enjoy doing it.  The information, the medical attention given has been valuable to resetting how we use and think of food without feeling that we are on a diet." - George Guzzio


"You need to take time for yourself to follow this program. They will work with you and make this work for you they do not want you to feel unhappy or uncomfortable. I had lost hope and had gained back 60 pounds of weight after gastric sleeve surgery 3 years ago. I knew I was falling back into bad habits I had changed but they helped me put it back together. I feel good I have lost 14 pounds of what I gained back. I am consistently losing instead of losing a few and gaining it back. That is so discouraging. I don't feel hungry or suffering so that definitely helps. They really care. I highly recommend this 5 pillars of health program the weight loss is a side effect of the healthier lifestyle."- Abigail Combs


"I like learning how the effects of poor nutrition affect our health. Didn't know how serious high sodium is. An eye opener." - Anonymous Patient


"I respond well to accountability and coaching and Dr. Rifai is valuable. Knowing that I would be able to personalize the program to me and my lifestyle and that it was not a rigid, "canned," one-size-fits-all program was very important to making it last a lifetime." - Anonymous Patient


"This has been a live changing experience for me. Both my mental and physical health have significantly improved." - Anonymous Patient
