At each monthly visit you will be treated with care by Dr. Magarino, MD, PA or 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 followup visits are short (typically you will spend less than 20 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.
