27/05/14 4 3 1 1 Gives you pills that do nothing to suppress appetite and tells you to eat a very low calorie diet. No counseling, no behavior modification, no learning about healthy eating habits. I barely lost 1 lb in two weeks. Complete waste of money.

28/10/12 5 5 1 1 Dr. Aron has the least creative approach to diet that I have ever encountered. Instead of catering to a patient's specific peculiarity (i.e. illness, disease, etc.) she hands him or her a pre-printed form and a bag of pills; there is no discussion about the patient's concerns or what he or she has already been doing on his or her own. The pre-printed form preaches that a 1000 calorie diet coupled with the aforementioned bag of pills will not only make you lose weight but also make you healthier! The diet itself is uninspired, unhelpful, and contradictory. For instance, it calls for a piece of toast for breakfast but also disallows ALL carbohydrate-rich foods. Finally, in 2012, and doctor who includes halves of grapefruit and hard-boiled eggs as meal options is a poor doctor who does not understand his or her craft.  Respond

30/08/11 5 5 4 4 I had a very hard time losing weight, even with diet & exercise. Dr. Aron helped me lose over 20 lbs and helped me learn about good choices in nutrition. The supplements are very helpful in assisting your weight loss. She and her staff are very friendly, and there was rarely a long wait to be seen. I would highly recommend this doctor to anyone who has honestly tried to lose weight without success. If you follow Dr. Aron's plan.. you WILL lose weight!  Respond
