Amazing customer service. The front desk is always nice & cheerful, easy to approach. I love Linette, she is the best. Sweet, nice, smart helpful & always happy. Jessica is amazing! Best customer service. Very nice and easy to talk to. Great recommendation of pizza chips. I love them!
The staff is wonderful and the diet really works. They are the only medical facility that offers "The Zone" products and teaches you how to eat properly once you get the weight off. This is the ONLY place you should go to make a lifestyle change.
I've lost almost 70 pounds (in 7 months) going to Dr. Garcia's office in South Tampa. I have no complaints about the diet, Rx, or supplements. They all work together to make it easier for you to lose weight. I've never lost this much in my life and I never thought I would! Most of the nurses you see every week have been or are on the diet, so they understand what you're going through. I see a nurse that lost over 100+ pounds, which really is wonderful motivation. I have no complaints about this Doctor's office and I would rec'd it to anyone!
There is no personalized diet for individual patients. Everybody gets the same meds and shots and you only see a doctor on the first visit. Anybody would lose weight on 600 calories a day without the pills. It really is an assembly line practice...in and out; pay and get your pills.
This clinic has a very crowded waiting room, little privacy, you will see people you know while waiting. A doctor sees you on first visit only. Return visits each week are with office staff for weigh ins and diet pill refills and they are rushed . Sales pitch to buy calcium tablets and multi-vitamins. Near starvation diet at 500 calories/day unrealistic, nobody really does that. If you don't loose, they tell you to get more B-12 shots. Over-all rushed and impersonal. Everyone seems to get the same medication and vitamins each week. Some people in there say they are losing weight though, so what ever works. But i felt like it was a cattle farm.
