What to expect on your first visit

We are not a cookie-cutter quick weight loss center. We take the time to get to know you and incorporate your goals and preferences into an individualized weight loss program.

On your first visit, you will meet with our quick weight loss center medical staff who will assess your weight loss needs through an initial wellness and nutrition consultation that includes:

  • Medical evaluation with our weight loss Practitioner
  • EKG
  • Comprehensive blood work to check metabolism, kidney, liver and thyroid function, CBC, lipid profile, blood sugar measurement and more
  • Measure Biometric Indices including weight, body fat measurement, and Body Mass Index Determination
  • Blood pressure check
  • Waist circumference
  • An evaluation of your current eating patterns
  • Review personal health disclosures


During your first and subsequent visits to our quick weight loss center, we focus on health risks related to being overweight, including:

  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Heart and liver disease
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Hormonal Imbalance
  • Arthritis
  • Stroke
  • GERD

A customized quick weight loss program

At CardioMender, MD, our fast weight loss center creates a personalized program based on the results of your wellness consultation and weight loss assessment.

You receive a personalized diet and nutritional plan to help with healthy eating habits and to help you lose weight quickly and safely based on your needs, such as:

  • Activity level
  • Personal nutritional preferences (i.e. vegan/vegetarian)

Our Medical Director, Cardiologist Dr. Barry Schiff, then reviews your assessment results and your customized quick weight loss plan with you, and answers any questions you have.

CardioMender MD is a fantastic facility. The staff is caring and respectful. There is no exception, it starts with Omar at the front desk, Sherry in the admin office and the medical staff, Yuli and Dr Schiff. Dr Schiff is knowledgable beyond his field, he is willing to listen and analyze all your lab work thoroughly. He is dedicated, knowledgable and kind. I have never been to a medical office quite like this one. Thank you for all you do.

I have been going to CardioMender for a while (I’ve lost 30 pounds since November), and I must say this is one of the best weight loss facilities in South Florida. Everybody from the doctors, nurses, staff, etc. are all friendly, kind, caring, and will help you meet your weight loss goals. This weight loss program is monitored by a cardiologist who makes sure that you are not only loosing weight but that you are physically healthy and your heart is healthy as well. When you start your program, they run bloodwork, EKG, and other tests, so they can find the best plan for you. Then you go in weekly to see how you’re going along with your plan. The office gives you all the essentials that you need in order to become successful on your weight loss. Also they’re available whenever you need them if you have any questions. Everybody the office is so motivating and amazing, you feel almost at home going in for your meetings. Dr. Schiff, Jannara, Moise, Shari, Omar, Mel, and Julie are amazing and there to support you on your journey.

Both my husband and I struggled with weight gain. We both are in the program for entirely different reasons, but we have the same goal of health. My husband, a diabetic, started this program obese, diabetic, and miserable. He has successfully followed the program for over a year and is still going strong. He no longer needs any medications to help control his blood sugar and is feeling better than ever and is 30 pounds lighter and dropping. I started the program in perimenopause, bloated, and well on my way to being obese. I can follow the same program as my husband, which makes things simple. I have lost almost 15 pounds and counting. In addition to losing weight, I have been able to lower my bad cholesterol, balance my hormones, and reduce inflammation. One final element to the Cardio Mender program is the Pantry. All the products there are vetted and clearly labeled. I can confidently shop in there for some yummy snacks and meal replacement options again with zero guess work. I have also researched the prices on many of the products at the pantry are either the same or lower. The Cardio Mender program is a source of comfort in my home. It has enabled me to eliminate all guessing in my and my family’s health journey. The staff and doctors are compassionate, thoroughly explain all elements of the program, and most importantly they show you how to live better without program. No magic, no subscriptions, no guess work.
