September 25, 2022

Amazing. Can't say enough! She listened; explained things. She was very thorough in getting my health history and goals

September 1, 2022

My experience was good. I was kind of hoping more testing would be involved to detect something that was off in my body (ex. Thyroid) since I feel as if my eating and exercising are average or better and I have not seen any results. I do however understand the approach that is being taken on a healthy relationship with food and feel as if I have already made a few improvements.

August 30, 2022

Had a wonderful experience with Lynzy! She was very knowledgeable and listened intently to all my concerns. I will definitely recommend her to my coworkers and friends!

August 25, 2022

Truly amazing to know now that old school doctors do still exist. Your team is beyond a blessing to my life and literally gave light back to my world. Thank you for your time your kindness and your help. I thank God for you numerous times throughout my day now. For that and all of you I am honestly grateful for. Thank you all.

August 16, 2022

I've already recommended some of my friends and family

August 6, 2022

I felt like I could open up and talk to her that made me feel at ease I was nervous as could be I didn't know what to expect and it's hard to talk about your weight problems and your eating habits but I felt comfortable with her I really liked her I can't wait to get everything started
