Dr. Jeffrey Brown's Ratings
Great program.Only one I have found that looks at and addresses your overall health issues. All the staff is approachable and friendly.Because I am on the road a lot, the doctor has modified program so that I can deal with restaurant eating. I am feeling so much better with more energy. Losing weight steadily.Cost of program is $125.00 a month. They have a promotion that if you commit to 2 months you get one free. Most cost effective of all the programs I have looked at.
He will treat you like a number and not a patient; go into his office and see for yourselves. Money is the motive. Over 400 for a program that is not permanent is very expensive. Soon as I stopped his program, I started slowly gaining due to starvation mode the doctor had me on his program. (Note:I ate healthy when I finished his program and I even enrolled in the gym)
my experience is a positive one. The doctor has investigated my sensitivities to certain foods and as been the only doctor to figure out that some of my medical issues were caused and made worse by some of the foods i was eating. I have learned that what we eat can impact us more than just gaining weight. Dr. Brown has looked at my hormonal balance and with just some supplements and better eating habits my energy and focus and libido are much better. I only had a bit of weight to lose so it was not difficult for me. I realize that taking care of myself is a commitment , and one i am finally prepared to take the time to do. This program I have found is very cost effective. It is not expensive and I have saved money by staying away from prepared foods etc... The doctor gave me a plan for over Xmas which included my being able to have alcohol and sweets. I followed it and was able to maintain my weight and health.Dr. Brown i have found is a wealth of knowledge and has given me some real insight into how what we eat plays on our health.Yes he is no nonsense, he will not allow me to make excuses , that is what i need to keep me on track
If you are thinking of joining this program I strongly urge you to read ALL of the negative comments on the following 24 pages. I wish I had!
The time was right for me and I did loose the weight easily and comfortably (17 pounds in 4 weeks) but I quit on my third time of seeing Dr. Brown (he was not there two of the weeks). He behaves like a diva, loud rock music playing in the background so you can hardly hear all the medical terminology he hits you with (And no - his staff DO NOT take the time to go over it with you 2 more times). During the second appointment he asked me why I thought I had only lost 2 1/2 lbs (after loosing 10 the first week). I replied I was suffering from constipation and he immediately started to berate me for making excuses. I wasn`t - I was just answering his question - and 12 1/2 lbs in 2 weeks obviously meant I was following instructions. I did not say anything, but I guess he could see it in my eyes that I thought he was a jerk for dressing me down like that. He commented that people actually like him.... The third time I saw him he told me my blood test showed I was low on something and I did not want to forget what exactly that was and took out a pen, which led him to forbid me to take notes in a really sharp tone. I did not comment - but again thought; what a jerk. I guess he is a mind reader because again he commented that I obviously do not like him - which is true, but has nothing to do with the program. I actually do not need hand-holding, I do not cheat - but I also do not need him to believe me that I did not cheat. Anyway, he got visibly upset with me and started to question my attitude towards the program (program is fine - he is not). He said I had been sarcastic from day one (this was only day three and I had hardly spoken more than 10 sentences since he is not interested in you or your personal circumstances) and that I was passive-aggressive and it kept getting worse. I could hardly believe I was being verbally attacked by a DOCTOR! And for what - because I don`t adore the ground he walks on like a lot of other patients on this site? As I left I felt that he did not want me there anymore (having paid for 3 months in advance without having the foggiest idea what the program was about) - so as I got up to leave I told him that I did not "have to" come back. He actually called me back to his office, called in a nurse as a witness (did he think I was going to hit him?) and then proceeded to tell me that he felt INTIMIDATED by me. At that point I just saw him for what he really is... I took two extreme put-downs that were absolutely uncalled for - but that is it. He gets no more of my money, none of OHIPs money on my behalf - and best of all - he will not hurt me again! Be smart - find a weight loss doctors who actually cares about people - this one is after the money only - and (really scary) the personal gratification derived from the adoration of the women eager to lose weight that will put up with anything to to get rid of the weight.
Saw Dr. Brown first time 24 weeks ago. Gave me ALOT of tests to do. I sat in his orientation twice so I could be clear about rationale about program. The program is initially restrictive as your body has to deal with you insulin resistance and addition to sugars. Now I have been given fruit and starches and I allowed to have wine on weekends. I feel so much better , no cravings, skin has stopped breaking out. Reading below shows people do not understand. Issue is not that people can't exercise rather they can't exercise as a sole weight loss plan as they would have to run too much to lose even a pound. My thyroid doctor was really happy with what Dr. B was able to do for me. For me more than the weight, I had PCOS and had trouble getting pregnant. I lost a little weight( didn't have much to lose) but Dr. Brown worked to treat my hormones. A followup Ultrasound shoed that my PCOS was much better , and 4 months later I have had a positive pregnancy test. For me having to have tried for 5 years to get pregnant Dr. Brown is a godsend. Dr. B has spared me from invasive fertility testaments and thousands of dollars. I have to wonder if all the very nonspecific ratings are from competitors as they seem to come after a few positive and specific ones come up and the negative ones say just the opposite of what Dr. B states in his orientation, so have to wonder if these people know and understand the program. For the proof is my improved health and my baby bump.
Low caloric intake will lead to weightloss.
Weight loss is too rapid and potentially dangerous.It poses too many health risks.
The Dr. Browns Diet will produce some weight loss results, and many testimonials claim that users have lost up to 10lbs per month, but the health risks associated with this diet program might be too much. Dieters are strongly encouraged to consult with a doctor before embarking on this program, as some side effects could be deadly. The diet will yield results, but health is always key to safe weight loss.
I have been diabetic type one for 36 years and do not need to lose weight. I am 5’11 and wheigh 158 lbs. What impressed me about dr Brown's pitch was that he claims that the diet and rigid carb restrictions will reduce or even assist in making the complications in other Type Ones will be reduced or eliminated. This would truly be an event of tremendous significance to all diabetics. Imagine no more carbcounting, no more insulin no doctors visits… But having tried this diet I have little faith many people could exist on the restricted carbs allowed. If there is documentary proof of such reversals of complications they should be published and circulated to the press. I wish them well but we need to see the proof that the carb starve rations have actually helped with weight lost or any impact on complications. Too many people are investing too much money based upon too little information. Also, for the comment below running 2400miles for a pound is exaggerated. There's is numerous healthy individuals who exercise, work, have children, social life and manage to exercise. I am sure if they were running 2400 miles for a pound they would never have time to work or have a social life. Please do not discourage individuals who want to exercise.
My personal experience with this program has been exceptional. This doctors practice includes wellness and anti aging medicine . He knows about all the new medical research. He told me about all the dangers of sugar before i saw it all over the media. I didn't have any gallbladder or liver issues just eating too much , but I do know its a common problem in obesity. No insult meant but I would take any weight loss supervised by a doctor rather that by a personal trainer. I work in an off shoot of the health care industry and after listening to Dr. Browns orientation anybody with some understanding of science understands his program is not Atkins, Bernstein or Poon.If the diet doesn't work for you fine then move on, what I find suspicious is the need for personal attacks. That smells more like someone not having the gumption to do the program and instead personally attacking the people who are out there to offer you help. Its just a sad that people function in live like that. But I digress. The program worked for me and I feel much better. Dr. Brown gave me a plan for when I go to parties and now for my xmas staff part. I paid $141.25 for the program. I don't know of any one cheaper. Just a ditty for the person below. Do you remember when doctor B said you have to run 35 miles to lose a pound! I guess you have been running 2400 miles ? You should be across the atlantic by now. lol .What I find hilarious is that every time someone gives a PERSONAL success story someone else quickly submits a vague rating with just personal insults. I guess there are just bitter people in the world. Dr. Bs waiting room is always so busy ( my only complaint) but I look at it as I guess a lot of people have come for his help. Just an aside I know 3 doctors who are Dr. Browns program.
