About Barry Schiff

Barry H. Schiff, MD is proud to serve as our weight loss program’s Founder and Medical Director. His interest in weight management evolved from years of observing his patients experience the vicious cycle of recurring health issues which were direct consequences of being overweight, and have not been successfully addressed by the healthcare industry or by dieting.

Erica Montecalvo, PA-C

Certified Physician Assistant


Erica is an NCCPA certified Physician Assistant with an interest in obesity medicine. She graduated from medical school in Buenos Aires, Argentina and was then offered a position in HIV/AIDS medical research at the University of Miami. She worked there for 8 years then decided to pursue a career in clinical medicine. Erica returned to school to become a certified physician assistant in July of 2017.

Erica’s experience working in Infectious Diseases has given her an understanding of patients who are nutritionally deprived and those who are overweight. Although the latter is due to advances in antiretroviral therapy, these patients face the same challenges as those without HIV such as being overweight, hypertensive, diabetic or diagnosed with metabolic syndrome.

She is looking forward to helping patients lose weight and keep it off, as well as to acquire additional knowledge in obesity medicine.
