"When I came to Dr. Carreon’s office I didn’t know what to expect. I had driven an hour and a half from my home just to find a “female doctor” who would understand my desire body shape. Mary put me at ease right away and Dr. Carreon fit me into her schedule right away. I’m delighted with my new waistline. It makes me feel young again, at 41."- Anonymous / Office Visit / May 10, 2009
"I've been going to this center for about six weeks now, and I've been able to lose 20lbs so far. Everyone in the office is very friendly and helpful. The complete physical exam and testing helped put my mind at ease before starting the program. I carry my booklet everywhere and it's been very helpful. I keep track of everything I eat and I exercise daily. I have so much energy and I feel so much better than I did when I first walked in. The program is easy, affordable, and just what I needed. I have quite a way to go, but I'm very happy with my results so far."- M.R. / Google / Oct 30, 2018
