Sandra George, APRN-BC has over 5 years of experience in internal medicine and weight loss. She is a board certified APRN. (Dr. Panchal is our supervising physician)
The weight loss program is medically supervised where you will receive: Body mass index screening Meal recommendations Fitness recommendations (customized to fit your lifestyle needs) High blood pressure screening Wellness counseling to continue a healthy lifestyle Incremental goals Prescription for an appetite suppressant
We follow Dr. Magarino motto: “I’m not here to judge you, I’m here to help you.”
At each monthly visit you will be treated with care by Sandra George, APRN-BC and his skilled staff. We want to help you on your journey to healthy living. To that end, we are also able to prescribe non-diet medications such as antibiotics or blood pressure medication. Many of our patients use us as their primary care doctor even after meeting their goal weight.
In an effort to better serve you, the program is affordable, customizable, and designed to be realistically attainable. Our follow-up visits are short (typically you will spend less than 10 minutes here* so many of our patients come before work or on their lunchbreak) and are scheduled monthly, not weekly, since most people lead busy lives.
*To help you plan your appointment, we want to let you know the times you might wait a little longer than usual. A new patient appointment takes appr 20 min and we schedule new patients at 7:45am, 9:45am,12pm, 2pm, and 2:30pm. So if you are an established patient who walks in, you may wish to come at times other than these. (In addition, we are typically busier at 7am and 12:15pm). You are still welcome to come at these times, of course - but please come up to the window when you arrive to check in and then you can wait in your car until we call you.
