I came to Dr. Scinta in January 2008 after months of being frustrated and depressed about my weight. I have struggled with my weight my whole life, and in the past 3 years had gained almost 100 pounds.
I had tried every “diet” there was, and knew that I had to do something different. I needed to change my life.
I was on the Optifast full meal replacement program for 14 weeks, and am currently continuing on partial meal replacement. The plan worked wonderfully for me. Because of the meal replacements, I didn’t have to think about what I was eating, and I realized how much I needed the mental break from food in order to change my life and my behavior.
Throughout the program, I have had some ups and downs, and there has been some tears and plenty of laughter. But no matter what kind of week I had, I always had plenty of support from Dr. Scinta, Jen, JT, and everyone at Medical Weight Loss of New York.
When people ask me about my experience with Dr. Scinta, I struggle to come up with the right words to describe what an amazing person she is. I have never had a doctor care so much about me as a whole; as a person. She truly cares so much about each and every patient and is committed to their success and happiness.
Thanks to Dr. Scinta, I am now 100 pounds lighter and continuing to lose, incredibly healthier and more active, and so much more happy and confident. I will never be able to thank Dr. Scinta enough for the difference she has made in my life.
